    *****Mod Day Changes:*****

    Ok. We had some small changes, so here's the deal:

    1) Engage Offroad will be sponsoring our first official SoCal Tacomas Mod Day by providing burgers and potato salad.
    2) Because of this, you need not bring food unless burgers are not your thing; just bring chips, dips and drinks.
    3) Engage's very own Chris will be coming down from Pomona with an Engage CHASE truck for further representation. As well as a Welder for us to use for all our needs.
    4) Cal Mini Trucks, through Engage Chris, will be buying (stock only) parts from users who are removing them; Chris will collect the parts, tag them by owner, and will take them to Cal Minis. Cal Minis will then write out and mail a check to each person who sold items to them. Bring your old aluminum crush bumpers, your plastic bumpers, your LCAs, good condition fenders and what ever else you can think of that you ripped off your truck.


    It's turning out to be even BETTER than originally planned and all of us already knew it would be a jolly-good-time. Come one come all to the first official Engage sponsored SoCal Tacomas Mod Meet... Cookies and punch will be there.

    Haha..

    I'm racking my brain over here trying to figure out how to make an accessory shelf in my engine compartment for a 2nd fuse box to run the HIDs and Aux lights.. I know where and how, i just don't have the metal fab tools.. Its so simple too, just need a metal brake, sheet metal bender thingy..

    That certainly is Old School.. I was thinking maybe Home Despot brackets and some plate aluminum until I could get something nicer fab'd up..
