    We got just about everything here, lots of deer of course and depending on where you go, large elk herds as well. Idk if you ever had any, but elk burger is amazing! Buffalo burger isn't bad either.

    It is nice here, best place to view wildlife is in Yellowstone. They got just about everything there, last October when I was there a mother grizzly and her cub ran down the road past my truck, here is the picture I snapped.

    Biggest thing to watch out for in Yellowstone is the dumb tourists that try to pet the animals and something like this happens...Despite the numerous signs throughout the park that firmly state that Yellowstone is not a petting zoo and that the animals can kill you, people still do these kinds of things.

    Yep, this forum is just a awesome place to be, 'nuff said. There are a few bad apples here, but other than that it is really friendly. I used to be a really active member on JeepForum and the sheer douche-baggery of that place drove me away, I still drop in every now and again, but it becomes less and less.

    There is still a guy out there that makes custom real roll bars for the Tacoma and all trucks, although I dont know how useful a real roll bar is, if it doesnt mount to the frame in the right spots. Either way, it gives it a "Tuff" look and good spot to mount your lights. They look great for those of us that grew up in the 80's with every pickup having a roll bar. They are a little pricey...but the real deal. Pages 10 & 11 have the Tacomas.
    http://www.truckrollbar.com/3barphotos/index10.html

    We used to have a couple of hunting trucks for the ranch in South Texas, and we had our off road spot light on the rolls bars and then driving/fog lights on the bumper...you cant beat that combination.


    There is a new T-force package coming out with the 2013 with a "light bar" / "bed bar" that looks ok for mounting lights/ possibly tying down lumber overhead. Looks like the rear mounts into the cleat rails. There has been something similar for the Hilux for years...I have seen them on the Mexican Hilux around town,

    And if you had a Double Roll Bar...you were REALLY Cool!
    My brother had a roll bar in his 78 Scout and I had one in my 82 Bronco...they weren't even pickups!...but you had to have a roll bar in the 80s! If you dont remember or dont know, both of those vehicles had removable hard tops.

    Sorry I haven't got back to this thread in a while, but I gotta ask, where did you get that lightbar in the back? At first I was skeptical, but the more I picture it in my head, the better an idea it seems to become and I would love this setup in my truck. I would like to make my truck look more retro like yours, it really looks good with the silver especially. Really loving the looks of your truck.

    I had an 87' pickup with double bars in the bed and KC lights. I really miss it. I like the look of your truck and I'm pretty sure I will do something similar to mine after I lift it. BTW where are you located in WV, my wife is originally from there.
