    Searching for a nice TRD
    Hey all! I'm Chris (duh lol) First off, i just looked through a few basic threads and realized my user name is similar to a mod here, oops! To Chris4x4: Sorry, i guess great minds think alike. Haha.

    Anyways, i'm a long time Jeep wheeler. Had 4 Cherokees and 1 Grand Cherokee. Ranged anywhere from 3-5.5" of lift, locked and armored. Love their capabilities on the trails, but i just got a new job and don't have much time for the woods anymore. SO, i figured for reliability, and bed space for my bike, i'd look into smaller pick-ups, but would still like to have something capable off road. I'll be quiet and search threads for the next few weeks trying to figure out if i should go w/ a TRD off road or sport. Hopefully in the next month or two i'll be able to find a nice one to pick up. Seeya on the boards!

    hahaha! ....And it begins, so there are 2 Chris's here w/out Tacomas...? I have to admit, out of all the vehicles i've owned, a M6 Tacoma TRD off road is one of the hardest to track down. Thanks for the welcome all.

    I have a Tacoma, but its a Prerunner. I have an M-37 4x4. I used to have quite a few 4x's, but....I dont now....Thus, SOME people seem to want to give me crap about it. :cool:

    Thanks man! Its been neglected this last year, as I have other projects on the burner, and am getting a little tired of off roading.
