    Wow! I sold my Black 2009 Lexus IS350 fully modded to buy my Black 2011 Tacoma PreRunner.....Well....I sold my IS350 because I only needed one car and my other car was a Black 2010 Porsche Carrera S....:p

    I had my Tacoma since New Year's Eve 2010 have no rock chips so far.....:D I knew that driving fast had an advantage.....:rolleyes:

    You should leave a distance when following behind cars especially trucks.....;)

    Sick bro. Yeah I had a white 2006 is250. Got tired of it. Needed a truck so I could work and surf. Love the car but im glad I got the truck. Just a few stuffs like the paint and my headlight lens thats peeling I gota deal with. And dont worry ull get some rock nicks soon ha. I do stay away from trucks and cars esp wen they got no mud flaps.

    My Hankook MT's pick up a handful of 3/4" rocks per tire every day and heave them at my truck .

    I have a few nicks , yes .

    Get a touch up pen at the dealership

    I also had the TOUCH GUARD PAINT SEALANT put on my truck as soon as I got it to protect the paint from anything that lands on it.....I had my friend put on extra layers on the roof....hood.....;) Not worried about rock chips cause it's bound to happen in time nothing you can do about it.....:cool:
