    Anyone thinking about this? Bring your Tacoma, Lamborghini or Volvo; everything is welcome! Feel free to come hang out and check out the rides or bring your car for $10. I know we'll have at least a few Tundras there so make sure you aren't underrepresented!

    Hey everyone, just wanted to give this a bump since the show is coming up fast! Please come out so we can meet some of the fellow forum members and talk trucks! It's shaping up to be a huge event with some sponsors sending full tractor trailers of cars including a fabled "million dollar car"

    I'd love to see everyone there and see some of the awesome rides people have been working on around here and maybe arrange some wheeling trips for those of us who can stand a scratch here and there :D

    As always, contact me with any questions or concerns

    Dave

    Well every single car at UMass got a business card on it about the show last night so if they have a car there, I'm sure they know about it :D

    Some of the guys from TundraSolutions have thrown around meeting up in town and rolling in as a group. If anyone is interested, I'll give the details here and we can all convoy there!

    What ever I can afford after spending money on the two wheel toys, which isn't much but I'll get around to building a nice truck like many of you guys.

    Probably go with weathertechs, koenig countersteers (not sure what tire to go with yet), some sort of exhaust and intake. This is my first truck that isn't a complete POS so I'm still learning a lot of stuff too, so if you're at the show I'll be sure to check out your mods (and others) and take many notes :D

    Well then keep hyping it up! There are tentative plans to meet up at a nearby mall at around 9:30 and then the Toyota Truck convoy will roll in together!

    I'll post details probably tomorrow night when there are the most people on
