    Hello Everyone!

    I have been beating on my '98 standard cab for quite a while and am just getting around to joining this form. Other than some mud tires and a tool box, my taco is pretty well stock. After spending some time looking at 1st gen mods I doubt it will stay that way long. I wheel pretty regularly and need to up my protection (sliders/bumpers) pronto. A lift and tires are also on my short list. I am sure I will be seeking advice form the community with regularity.
    -Mike

    For now here is a picture I took of my truck while wondering if it would swim.

    Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome! I'll keep you posted as I tackle some of the amazing mods I have found on this forum. :cheers:

    Nothing special at the moment. I'll have to get on that!


    Not at the moment. I'm running a pretty standard setup so there may be a doppelganger out there. I'll be on the look out!

    Hey Chip, what part of the Commonwealth are you from? Always looking for someone to wheel with.

    Speaking of that, anyone know of an East Kentucky club?

    It didn't so much swim as tread a little water. I though about driving it out half way into the river and doing some fishing from the bed!
