    While correct, it’s also a half truth. It’s “you don’t buy a truck for it’s wheel well geo, HOWEVER, you DONT buy a truck BECAUSE it has GROSE AF wheel well geo.” So it’s an issue of do and don’t. I obviously don’t, because I didn’t.

    This. It needs a roof on top of the roof, and a 6 burner stove top range...otherwise how will you eat.

    Do I get a set of 1st gen side steps if I like Neil Diamond and working with leather, but don't own a 1st gen? Maybe I can weld them to my cab mount on my second gen and wrap them with leather.

    I have no questions for the Toyota engineers.
    I do, however, have derogatory statements.
    I will not share them here because this is a family forum.....
