    I am a land resource manager and GIS analyst for the Maui Land & Pineapple Co. I get to spend a lot of time mapping our lands 30,000 acres with a GPS. Just negotiated a vehicle allowance for my Tacoma, so I get to 4-wheel through all of the old plantation/forestry roads for work. This picture shows about 70% of our land.

    I’m jealous bro;) . We borderline dislike or even hate people who get paid to play:cool: . Consider buying a winch. Will get you out of a jam and you’ll get to work/home on time.

    I'm impressed with your professions. I just work in a community hospital and unlike the others that has a magnificent view. I just work in the dark mostly.

    I keep hearing that the Tacoma is a yuppee truck. So, let's decide once and for all...What do you do for a living?

    I'm a beginning mechanical engineer. I work in the bulk material handling industry(conveyor belts.)

    Retired from the Army after 21 years, a couple of years ago. Work as a Govt. Contractor.

    Could buy any truck I want, but after a signficant amount of research, this met my needs, and has visual appeal.
