    Hey Folks,

    I just picked up new Taco - 08 Quad Cab - Long Bed. This truck is awesome. I traded for an 07 FJ Cruiser - which I loved - but I needed a more functional vehicle. So, here I am...

    Looking to do some mods, but not a whole lot - until a make a big dent in the payments... :eek: Plus this darn thing comes with so much I don't know how much I really need mod...

    But do have some questions (and yes, I will use the search button) about the bike attachments for the bed and recommendations on a tonneau cover?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Welcome Jim. I think you will find this to be a fun site to visit. Lots of kidding around but you can also get answers to serious questions when needed.

    I see you are from Maryland...don't get sucked into the Carolina Alliance (you will learn about that later) :D

    sawdust, I think the Carolina Alliance is getting too big for their britches. :eek: Someone needs to keep them in check before they take over the world...

    acutally now that i think about it maybe the Alliance should initiate some form of voting system to figure out what we do, otherwise i'm gonna pick fights with every state in the US by the end of the month. You're safe for now rhoppas.... at least until we vote to take you down

    I thought the aims of the Alliance were pretty straightforward. What's this voting stuff? I thought you were ruling with an iron fist. As far as the other states, well, if you say we should take over CA, I have no objection as long as we don't make Californians (at least not Alliance members) the enemy. CA could use more beer drinking:)

    Maybe, after Saturday Kansas should get a bye, at least for a week. Kansas State DID knock off texas after all. I kinda figured anyone who does a 41-21 number on texas deserved some slack. What do ya think?;)

    Since I am kinda siding with the Texas boys I decided I probably shouldn't rub in the Saturday game too bad. I did briefly mention it on another post though. For some reason I didn't get much of a response... :D

    I guess we can let rhoppas slide for a week since his state did humiliate Texas. Although i guess thats not hard, no football team can play well when they are playing with cowboy boots and 10 gallon hats instead of helmets....

    But that's just the deal. UT is one of the most urban city-fied schools in Texas. You wanna find player with boots and hats, then you hit A&M or Tech.

    Oh, and I wore my boots in honor of you today, cousin.
