    Who drives a dcsb, super white second gen, on what looked like a set of 5100's with scs stealth 6's, grill craft grill, oem roof rack, bhlm and pretty dark tint? Was right next to/behind them on university parkway and i75 north bound in Sarasota? This was about 45 minutes ago.

    August BUMP for this old thread. Cape Coral here. I've been building a Taco for the last 2 months. We're moving this month and headed overseas for vacation in September, so I'll probably put the build on hold until the Fall. Next project is to monstaline the exterior and get some decent tires. It's pretty ratty now, but it's come a long way.

    Would love to get together and do a little wheeling. I'm new to the South (by way of Boston and 10 years in Northern AZ) and don't have much experience in mud puddles or endless sand roads. Is there any technical wheeling around here? Also, can anyone recommend a little play area in the Cape? I might go check out the area I saw on Google maps at Del Prado and Kismet. As of now, I've been testing my shock lengths and bumpstops at drainage ditches and the local church. :D

    Anyway, give a wave or a shout if you see me. I only work 8 days/month so I'm always either in the garage with the taco or on the water in my boat.

    June - July, before & after:
