    When I lived in 89109 my car insurance was higher with a 2 mile commute to work than when I moved to 89123. Proximity to the strip was how the agent explained it to me when I asked why my insurance went up. That was a few years back but I think it is still true. This town is very transient so vehicle registration, insurance, etc is easier to tax or inflate since many people do not own homes.

    Banks are holding in to the houses to help drive demand up= drive prices up. There are a lot of houses but banks won't make them available.

    Might I recommend the Fierce MTs I am currently running. Everyone will know you're a badass with barbed wire on your tires and you will be the envy of everyone who has sub-badass tires. Oh, and they have tacked everything I have thrown at them including pulling two race trucks simultaniously through silt, rock, asphalt. The tread life is amazing as well. I bought mine with supposedly 10k miles on them, I have put another 50k on them, and they are still knobby as hell, look great with minimal "chunkin".

    bought from a Nissan dealership. Take it to Toyota though?

    I have clear bra on my doors, fenders, under handles where fingers scrape and such, but there's nothing on the grill, and pretty sure there's nothing on my side mirrors either. I'm going to go look right now.

    I wonder if it's a chemical at the Pit Stop car wash. Been there 3 times with my Tacoma the past month. Noticed both of these plastics melting a few days after I went through twice in a row after first round didn't get the bugs off from a road trip. hmmmmm

    I'll get pictures tomorrow. I took one tonight but it's dark and doesn't show justice (but still looks like shit)

    After doing some searching, it sounds goofy but could be due to energy efficient windows reflecting the sun. Which in turn gets much hotter than usual and is melting the cheaper than most cars plastic on Toyota tacoma's and Prius cars.
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/262658-melting-side-rear-view-mirrors-3.html

    look through comments. The 2nd and 3rd page have pictures of the window reflection.. It might be where I'm parking my Taco in this apartment complex with huge windows right in front of it. Interesting to say the least.

    ^ Interesting....Sounds like that could be your problem. Kinda like the sun through a magnifying glass effect.
