Hi everyone!

As of this last Friday, I am a proud Toyota owner and first-time 4-wheeler. I work with Shawn Cardinal, and he pointed me to these forums. He's been a big influence in me getting a Toyota and also getting in to wheeling. Im looking forward to hitting the trails and am planning on attending your meeting next month.

So, without further ado, here is my new toy/get 'er done mobile:

1989 Toyota Pickup
4.3 liter Chevy V6
Slap shifter
Big lift, and big tires (not sure about specifics right now!)

"there goes the neighborhood" :D Welcome aboard Daniel and welcome to the madness! you're hooked in with a great group of Toyota folks.

I think this month's meeting is out (can't get a sitter for tomorrow), but we'll both be there for the Nov. meeting and hopefully get a chance to do a run in the meantime. the Spooky Night Run is one of my favorites!

I love the fact the outside is bedlined! cool truck indeed.:cheers:

Thanks everyone! 1554 is indeed one of my favorite beers, but I wont turn down a 90 Schilling or Easy Street either! I wont be able to make it to tomorrow's meeting, but Im hoping to make it on some runs before we meet in November.

So far I've taken it down to the Saguache area and have taken it up to a nearby mine. Thus the pics. Nothing too serious, but it handled it like a champ! The 2wd truck I was with was spinning wheels all the way up the hill. Definitely hooked!

5 Barrel, or Ranger... Man the list goes on.

Taco guy's been in a meeting or extended lunch. Otherwise I would throw something at him. :)
