just as good... old bag o'clam shells

sweet ride Frank.

I'm priming my wife for a Tundra 4x4 SR5, space here can't handle a full size but several old farts in our neighborhood have these and they look about the right size.

Where did you find this one, a toyota dealer or ???

Thanks Rob, Tim Joe

Priming for wifey was easy, she is happy her explorer will not be the beach buggy but wifey also enjoyed the response of the 317Hp/385Torque...at minimum I will need 10lbs of sand in the floor mat and a couple pencil poppers hanging from the rear view to keep her away...for now i will stay away from the rotten bait.

It's a Nissan! Toyota in English means 'recall' I got it at a dealer, took 6 weeks to find what i really wanted after much searching through Titans, F150's and Silverados... I was leaning more towards an older beater but decided the difference in money was worth it, and like all my vehicles I will have this one for 8-10 years...anyone need a Honda Accord

Congrats on the new beach buggy. No need for stinky bait, after your first fishing trip mention to your wife that an eel got loose and you can't find it. Use your imagination, like,

"Eels can live a long time since they eat anything, grease, potato chips, anything they can find..."

"Eels don't bite, they just attach themselves to you and suck your blood."

Very nice that's what I wanted but if I parked on my driveway I couldn't open the door. So I had to go with it's little brother.
Now you also have to get a bed rack like Jess's. Enjoy the new ride.

The lost eel, PERFECT! Thanks Bob

Thanks Pat, first thing I am looking for is a rod launcher or at least something I can rig up that is not PVC

the pro4x is really nice, really tough to find a good deal on a used one i went with the titan king cab(this is an SE model) because i wanted a decent back seat for the kids but did not want the crew cab, i dont like the look with 4 full doors, just personal taste

oh the add'l purchases have already begun! just ordered the rocket launcher

BTW if you are looking for a hard tonneau cover check out BakFlip, no drilling with a locking tailgate pretty secure, folds up flat against the back window if you need the whole bed or comes off easy with 2 thumb screws and half the price of the roll up kind

Default Re: My new cooler rack HOLDER

definitely keep that bakflip in mind

may or may not be interested in used ( ), but won't be making a decision until
later this year... this would replace my current beach ride... a jeep liberty, which was
actually great last year.

Frank, I agree... the crew cab just doesn't seem quite right on pickups to me either.
If I really really was going to ride 3 or 4 adults in this thing, I'd consider it, but for now it would only be the occasional extra, so the king seems a perfect fit.
