    I would suggest looking in Pasco for a place to live. Easy commute to clearwater and tampa areas. Also closer to the nothern spots for outdoor stuff like wheeling, camping etc. The main thing is that it is much cheaper than either Pinellas or Hillsborough county to buy/rent a place. You can get a lot more for your money. Going out to the islands can also be a lot of fun.

    Ball joint spacers and lift blocks, am I doing it right?
    I'm not a surfer, but this is the site to check for west coast waves" http://www.gulfster.com/home.html ". It's all really storm dependent, check the archives, we occasionally get surf.

    Tampa here also. I'm outdoors every chance I get, Weedon island is an awesome place to kayak and fish. Surf only comes with some cold fronts and Hurricanes.. Gulfster.com is pretty solid.

    Konichiwa, fellow Tampons! I'm in North Tampa (Forest Hills). Just got my Tacoma and joined TW. How many of y'all get together to wheel?

    It'll be a while for me. Gotta get my Taco painted, lifted, and get some decent rubber under it (which is waiting on selling my old truck, a '96 F250 Supercab 4x4), but I'd be interested in joining any expeditions to Richloam or other locations.

    When I was looking for a Tacoma it was cheaper to buy new versus used plus get a new truck w full warranty. I also found my best deal at clearwater toyota.

    Clearwater was a bunch of assholes to me, and ended up walking me out... i got mine at autoway toyota in st pete... Delt with Andre who is in fleet sales and i didnt have to talk to anyone else and he didnt need to get "approvals" for prices... Best car deal ever, called him, told him what i wanted. he found it and i drove down the next day, signed the papers and left.
