    My dear friends at TW,

    I want to thank you all for the experiences and knowledge which you have shared with me over the past year+. I have enjoyed a majority of the time on this site and made some good friends along the way. My life has changed much since joining and certainly since purchasing my Tacoma in 2003. It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that i will be leaving the Tacoma owners world and purchasing something more useful to my family situation. I have searched high and low for a way to avoid this, but with two kids and two dogs I must succomb to the inevitable. Within the next 2 weeks, pending loan approval, we will be moving our family commute in to a Volkswagen Routan.

    We have selected one at the local VW dealer and my new friends at www.routanownersclub.com and I have already put together a plan for some minor mods. You can see the Routan at: http://www.garnetvw.com/VehicleDetails/563067893

    The plan at present is simple, some new wheels and maybe a 1 inch drop. We will of course be removing the emblems and tinting the windows. A grille much like the one I installed on the Tacoma may be an option as well. If any of you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know.

    Thank you again for all of the support and friendship. I will still pop in upon occasion. If not online, I will see you on the road.

    Just because you sell doesn't mean you have to leave.
