    So I wanted to share with you all the very first load I made with my Tacoma. I loaded up an 8 foot, 300 lb statue of the Incredible Hulk. The statue is being donated to a comic book store in El Paso, TX. On our 7 mile drive to our house before we left for El Paso, we were one crazy sight! Photos were taken by passerby's and at almost every stoplight we were offered money for the statue. The highest bid was $2,000, but the statue will still be donated to the comic book store. Hope you get a kick out of it!

    It is somw kind of resin with 2X4's in the inside. It is really heavy at the bottom and light at the top. We are driving it to El Paso tommorrow, this time on a trailer though. :)

    When we left the theatre, we thought it would have been a better sight to use chains. The purple repelling rope just doesnt do it :)

    I was wrong on the weight. It was a little over 300 lbs. Felt like more than 500 though. We moved it into the comic book store today. And the owner gets all of his new comics in tommorow... so it was perfect timing with the big rush of people he will have in the store.

    I am glad you all liked it as much as we did!

    Looks like the Hulk is trying to break out. You must have done the D-Ring Mod. I doubt the stock rings could contain the Incredible Hulk.

    When we put the ropes on him, it was almost perfect on the way it looked as if he was trying to break free. I went and seen the movie last night, it was really good. I enjoyed Iron Man very much, and this was just as good as Iron Man. I am not really a comic book type of guy, but the movie was great to me.

    thanks bro...

    I didnt like that color at first. But when I saw it with the black fenders I liked it. I dont care for the color-keyed bumpers and fenders on trucks unless it is lowered like the XRunner. Looks great on that model in my opinion. Driving with the hulk was pretty crazy, I thought I was going to hit every power line down the street!
