    Names Cheeto, i have a passion for toyota trucks that has burned inside of me ever since that gorgeous 4x4 at the end of Back to the Future. I was around 6 years old and finally found myself in a life position at age 30 to finally afford a tacoma. That was 2 years ago and if you look in my driveway today, you would see that passion quickly plunged into obsession with my 89 toyota 4x4 custom baja prerunner, 99 tacoma trd (recently totaled,) 05 tacoma trd prerunner, 2016 tacoma TRD Off Road, 1992 4RUNNER 4X4, 1997 4RUNNER 4X4 and lets not forget the 93 Geo Metro.

    On our way to work one day... Wait for it... Asian lady in front of us wasnt paying attention to traffic stopped in front of her. I saw that collision was going to inevitable so i braked and moved to the next lane over to avoid the pile up. But as she was plowing into the the... Wait for it... PRIUS she yanked over hitting my front drivers quarter and it stopped us dead causing the honda behind us to drive under our rear end. Ripped all of the suspetion from the drivers side wheel and totally twisted the frame :( total loss. The insurance check was the funds for the 97 4runner though.

    Here is the only photo i have of the 97 Runner. The wife snapped it before i removed the factory running boards. Btw, anyone want the running boards and/or the chrome factory fender trim?
