    Hey all, I'm a retired Army guy going through my second childhood - this time with money! Seriously, my bank loves me but it's all good. I'm a medical equipment repairer, specializing in x-ray equipment, CT's and MRI. In my spare time I ride my Harley, long distance preferred.

    I've been wanting/needing a truck for a while and I was looking seriously at other brands but ultimately stuck with Toyota because of my good experience with my other one (2003 Matrix - traded for the Tacoma). My common sense self told me to get the base model four banger but after a test drive I knew it wouldn't do it for me. I looked at the V6's and they only had them in the Prerunners but I started liking them right away. The only off roading I will probably do is by accident if I miss the driveway or something but I really like the look of the TRD Off-road package. Usually new vehicles look awesome on the dealer lot but then diminish somehow when they sit in your driveway - not in this case! That truck looks awesome anywhere!

    As far as mods planned, I don't really have any presently but that's what I said when I got the Harley. Little necessities just seem to have popped up despite my plans, though, so who knows?

    Over at the Harley forum they always say they like pictures so here are a few. It's just a stock Tacoma but it's MY stock Tacoma! :)
