    I just applied the "Winter coat" of protection to my truck and it looks so damn good I thought I'd put pics of her:)

    This is the stuff I have been using on this truck since new and on all my vehicles since the late 80s. I swear by it, and it speaks for itself

    It is pricy and is only sold in finer car dealerships and very few auto stores-but worth it

    Machine gun mount. Would love to blow the shit out of it since it has nothing but issues. QA at Toyota USA is shit. Start making them in Japan for Christ's Sake!
    Nice dude! I might have to buy some...I like that shell too. We have the same model.

    HA! I hadda sift thru 19 pages of pics to find a damn straight pic of your truck...and got so HUNGRY looking thru them I almost had a second dinner:D nice truck! Get that friend on it-your truck suffers thru way more than mine weatherwise.

    We have a rare one-I just don't see them! Pics please:) wanna see it on a second gen! Mine's almost 6 yrs old and no leaks. Great shell-but as you know expensive. Mine cost two grand with tax. Probably why so rare.
    Nobody's going to think you're a sissy for taking pride in your truck's appearance:)

    Whatsup buddy:) naw this stuff doesnt do that. It goes on thin and leaves a dull film that is a bitch to buff off with a dry towel. I use a damp terri cloth with a dry terri towel right behind it-amost acts like a claybar type thing. I thought your Pop used the same thing?
