    Yea, I sold my 96 Tacoma 4X4 to my son. He graduated from the Coast Guard Basic Training Center in Cape May, NJ., last week, and will be stationed 2 hours from here, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He bought my truck, and I bought a 2001 Tundra. Wow, what a nice truck. James will take my Tacoma to a new level, no doubt, as he is putting in new tailights and headlights as we speak.

    I looked at and deeply desired a 97 GMC and a 2003 SIlverado, both extended cab trucks in pristine condition, but the Tundra won. What a nice truck. I had to have a full size truck for work, and did not want or need a 4X4any longer. The Tundra is a nice truck. Jim

    I feel your pain... I sold my 96 tacoma in 2003 to buy a Dodge Ram. The Ram was nice and it hauled azz nicely. And then - I stopped towing on a regular basis and bought myself a 2007 tacoma.

    Life is good!

    Hey Jimbo, where have you been? I missed my Yankee friend ;) all these months.

    Looking forward to having some buttered grits for breakfast, with lots of black pepper and some venison on the side. Are you up for it? :D

    Been lurking, been lurking around when time permits. Grits and Venison, I can't wait. However, the heart doctor says lay off the butter. So, I soak the venison overnight in Italian Salad Dressing, and then cook over mesquite on the grill, the rarer the better. Melts in your mouth ! Archery season is in here in Alabama, and I do see deer in my yard every week now. Maybe, just maybe............... Anyhow, my son will learn to turn wrenches on a bouy tender in Chattanooga, so he will be able to keep the Tacoma running fine.
    Thanks, Jim Mann - Tundra owner !
