    I see a lot of tacomas here in Miami, but most have big rims and tires for the bling. Why buy a truck if your not going to use it for what it's made for. What do you think?

    HAHA my tacoma is the hunter green, but i have about an inch thick all aounr they actually had no clue what color my truck is...just be careful when you go play in the mud try and get your truck washed within a few days otherwise its gonna stick and its hell when you go to wash it....I spend on average anywhere from 15 to 20 dollars at the car wash pressure washing my truck

    I am in total agreement with you ! Don't get me wrong, I appreciate someone who mods there rig til the cows come home, but what really gets my motor running is to see someone with the bed loaded up with tools or feed or whatever, pulling a heavy ass trailer, stomping on it, getting somewhere to get something done ! There is a lumberyard in Palmyra, New York that all the salesman drive tacos (company vehicles) and those trucks are loaded to the hilt everyday, damn it's a nice site to see them leave in the morning, like roll call. :burnrubber:

    I use mine for work. I build golf courses and having a 4x4 is a prerequisite. It gets me up and down the hills throughout the property.

    I use mines for everyday commute and to haul friends around. Also, I like looking down on drivers who drive low cars. I get a feeling of superiority unlike any other. It's a manly feeling indeed.

    Same here in Hawaii. Most guys bling out their "trucks" with useless chrome crap with low profile tires, WTF. Different strokes for different folks. I just see it as completely stupid and that they should have just bought a car.

    Personally, I think it is an insult to the Tacoma. It is just wrong. Leave the Tacoma alone and go buy a fr*king Avalanche and put custom wheels on it.
