    INTRODUCTION:
    ~My name is Stefen Schmidt, born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. In January of 2011 I bought my first truck, a 2008 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road PreRunner. From that moment on, I can honestly say my life changed forever! We begin first with the theme of my build. I named my truck RINZLER, after the character in the movie, TRON:Legacy. Rinzler is sort of a badass throughout the entire movie with his black and orange theme, making it an easy decision to adopt the same designs into my truck.

    As an Offroad & Outdoor Enthusiast, I know there will always be something to add to make Rinzler better equipped for the road ahead, and to help continue on my adventures. With that said, I strive to find companies that can help me achieve my goal to make this truck capable of being both a comfortable Daily Driver and the Weekend Off-Road Warrior. It is an honor to be associated with the following companies due to their excellent customer service and growing customer base. I hope to continue and help expand their businesses by representing their products and/or work on my build.

    The Rectified Build Story
    By definition to Rectify is to put something right, or make something better. This concept was so easily adopted into my build after naming my truck Rinzler, based on the movie Tron:Legacy. My obsession only grew when I made the realization I could use this reference to the movie. Here I want to show you the journey that began on January 26, 2011 when Rinzler and I were introduced :cool:

    See build thread.
    Nice truck man. We still gotta meet up so you can see how my truck sits. Did you qualify for the TSB? Hope you didn't pay the dealership a shit-ton of money if you didn't.

    Thanks man! Sorry I keep getting caught up, we definitely need to meet or I can just meet you at your station.

    FUNNY YOU ASK! I literally just got back to the house after they did the TSB. I did end up qualifying thanks to the toyota extended care warranty...i said I had an atv in the back and it was bringing the bed down so much it was "too dangerous and harsh" to drive.
