    I bought a Porsche last summer and while it was a BLAST(CaymanR) it made me feel like an OLD GUY(54). My new Tacoma makes me feel 21 again and I'm lovin it:D.
    My son and I got matching Tacomas in January and we are both looking to spend some $$ on plate bumpers, slider bars, etc..

    My son Ryan the Marine somewhere east of San Diego

    :wave: Welcome to TW from Sparks, NV. What are you going to be doing in our area?
    Let Eric know when. He makes great stuff (including the only front plate bumper designed for the '12s) and will someday make some sliders, skids & bumpers for me.

    We'll be staying up at Serene Lakes for 5 days so I was hoping to meet Eric. I have no problem waiting, it allows saving up the mamma don't know $$.

    Cool, I'll check them out. The guys in Reno must be super busy. They don't seem to have the time or maybe don't want to meet while I'm there this week. Some shops like to be left alone..

    Ha! I had a Boxster, too, and it was a lemon. Still a great-looking car, but this Tacoma is much more fun! Aaaaaand, I'm selling my new Demello sliders, just in case you were interested down the line... ;)
