    It is scary that the only qualifications these guys have to make this record attempt is that they for 40 words together nicely.

    That was just for the ride along slot. The other two guys have all the experience they need; polar expeditions, 24 hrs of le mans, desert crossings, etc.

    My friend Jamie at TRD Sparks has been working with this team. The truck was bought at the dealership he works at and the dealership helped with the build. I let Jamie know that they should mention it is a Tacoma. He will pass the word on to the expedition team as well as have them correct that Sparks is in Myrtle Beach, SC and not Miami as stated on the site.

    I'm sure Jamie never thought that when he got the job at TRD Sparks in the parts sales department that he would be traveling to Chile to hand deliver control arms.
