    Hopefully the title is enough to attract attention. Open to title suggestions, let's have some fun with it.

    So I jokingly "sold" some stuff recently. Check out the thread.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/fs-rare-pts-remote-fob-w-meso.613565/

    I had no idea that I would actually find some buyers. But I thought, hey why not, I'll see where this goes. I sold an oem remote fob and some leftover @MESO buttons from the minimalist remote fob. I thought "you know what, I'm gonna throw in some random shit too". In addition to the fob and meso buttons, I added:

    - random LEDs (all functioning)
    - 3 194 bulbs
    - 2 led bulbs (forgot the size. I had them in the reverse light)
    - 1 led strip/ rectangle thing with multiple connectors
    - yeti and meso sticker
    - had some leftover paracord, so made a quick "oh shit" handle.



    All of this went to @VirusCage. We want back and forth on what he should pay. I told him not to worry about paying me, just enjoy the stuff but he insisted and gave me some money plus shipping. We both thought let's see if we can get some kind of ongoing secret santa type deal started.

    Updated rules. 6/20/2019 @ 6:00 pm mst

    1. Human centipede giveaway will be closed and no more participants will be allowed on the list after 11:59:59 pm MST 06/22/2019. no exceptions. After 11:59:59 pm MST 06/22/2019 its go time. Send your bag of goodies.
    2. The person listed as participant number 1 will make a bag of goodies to send to participant number 2. Number 2 will send to number 3 and so on. The last person on the list will send to number 1.
    3. The sender and receiver are in charge of exchanging personal information for shipping.
    4. The person sending the package will be in charge of paying for the entire cost of shipping. Shipping. Box. Materials. Nothing will be sold, only given away if you participate.
    5. What you send is up to you. Taco related or not taco related. The value of said items has to at least equal $20 bucks. Nothing less than a $20 value. There is no cap on value. Totally up to you. DO NOT RIP ANYONE OFF!!! DO NOT SEND JUNK!! Let's make this fun and fair. Let's send cool stuff.
    6. If you want to "interview" the sender to know they wont get offended by sending them a glass didlo, totally up to you. I perosnally would leave it up to fate and let the sender send me some cool shit and be totally surprised.
    7. Once you receive your bag of goods, you must post pics.
    8. The list will be created in order ofparticipation.
    9. Last rule, make this fun. Lets make some friends and have a good time with it.

    What do you guys think? I might have some stuff in the garage to make another bag of goodies to start this thing off, unless someone else wants to be the first human centipede santa claus.

    I tagged a couple folks that were part of my original thread in hope's of striking up interest. @STrooper @Lawfarin @JaCado @Tacospike @LivinOnEdge @El_Jefe jefe

    Excuse the typos, doing all this on my phone.

    Thanks for the tag, I'll observe for the time being. Willing to play at some point as I have some goodies also that can be gifted. Just need to get my ducks in a row for it. :hattip:

    Haha "completely" might be a stretch but by all means go for it. Just sharing for anyone who wasn't aware of tacomaworld's secret santa that may want to participate later this year.

    It's all good:cheers:
    This was technically started on a free give away of a personal item... we turned the thread into a make shift silly auction. OP ponied up his items and apparently had a decent time giving stuff away in the manner in which it happened. This is of free will and can be unused things in your home or garage that may be better suited for a new home. Like I have a bag of swag from events and truck meets, shirts, stickers, buttons, koozie, etc... it will be free excluding shipping. If you want to spend money that's up to you, but no need to do so. This will be a ongoing thing..... not sure of the schedule OP has in mind or really how it will all shake out. Sounds like a fun idea to break up the day to day agony of "what's the biggest tire I can fit on a stock truck?" questions that plague this site.:D
    The secret santa.... you enter via the thread, but are assigned a person to shop for/gift and you don't pay to have it shipped to you. One time event per year.

    :hattip::fistbump::cheers:

    I'd likely be interested in joining in. I've had a few different 3rd gens so im sure i have some random tacoma stuff laying around LOL

    It would make it easier if everyone had a build thread... Not that i do either... But if they did it would be easier to see what a person was interested in, already had, or could use...

    It's something similar but at the same time totally different. It would be fun if this was an ongoing "chainmail" type of format versus once a year. Def had to set some rules so nobody feels jipped. Hopefully you join in. Thanks for linking to the TWSS.
