    I recently found this website. Been a member of TTORA since 2001, and i just tired of the BS there.

    I am from socal. I am on my 8th Toyota in the past 10 years. I guess I liked the new car smell to much, or i am a bit nuts.

    99 Prerunner v6
    01 Extra Cab 4x4 TRD (stolen)
    99 Extra Cab 4x4 TRD
    04 Tundra Double Cab 4x4
    05 4Runner Sport Edition 4x4 v8 (loved it the best)
    07 Corolla S 5 Speed ( commuter Car)
    07 Tundra Double Cab (a POS)
    08 Tacoma Double Cab 4x4 Sport LB.

    Out of all my Toyota's, my 4Runner was my Favorite. I actually shed a tear when it was sold. I had Donohoe Coilovers, Camburg Arms, OME Rear. It hauled ass, but it did not have a bed. Felt bad hauling my bug Parts inside and it got scary towing. I wish they made a v8 Tacoma or a small diesel.

    Here are a few pics of my 4runner which I miss, and my current Tacoma.

    Nice truck by the way, I guarantee you that you will love your Tacoma as much as your 4Runner.
