    First off, thank you for your service!!

    Second, welcome to TW.

    Third, we joke around about our girls and our trucks here at TW, but honestly, as obsessed as my family says I am with my truck, it can't hold a candle to my wife of 18years. My truck could break down(not likely) but my wife would stand beside me through anything! So you could guess my vote. Although mixing the two if she is ok with it, would be the best of both worlds for you.:D

    Have fun when you get home, and again, thanks for helping to protect my family and my freedoms.:)

    Haha thats funny man. Im in Kuwait as well for a port call though. Back to the states in 19 days. I've been out here for 1 yr. Im feelin ya about the mods. Ive been buying stuff left and right for my truck out here cause i have the money saved up and i have nothing better do when i have down time. Bought myself my 06 Tacoma 4x4 DC Sport from the dough ive saved out here. I vote get those mods if youve got some extra dough. The mods that i bought out here are new 5100's for all four corners, aftermarket headlight and fog bulbs, KnN, iPod Adapter, and maybe some new duratracs from 4wheelparts.com cause they have free shipping and a $20 rebate for them. More to come before i get home too im sure haha. Hope the rest of your tour does suck too made bro.

    Thank you for serving VenomTaco88 and Farnorcal

    I voted to get the gal to help you with the truck, I highly doubt the lady will be able to seperate herself from you for awhile so you may as well bring her in to the garage. lol
    Happy Thanksgiving to all

    Easiest math is spend as much on her as you do the truck. At least that's what you TELL her (hehe).
    Thanks for your service, guys. I'm recently retired, but I've been where you are so I feel ya.
