    Did I screw up here? I thought this was part of the new member intro Page.

    I didn't mean to create a new thread! Guess you know who doesn't do much on forums. Or 4-ums

    Love your colour choice. Barcelona red is what I would really have liked, but you can see in the photo that I didn't get it. I had to take shitbrindlegrey instead as it was the only Trail the dealer had in stock. Have fun! - Ted

    Thanks, TedRCASC! It was between this color and yours (shitbrindlegrey is very classy), but I've always wanted a red truck, so I had to go with it. Even got a bunch 'o dust on it Sunday driving to a little remote lake north of Pine, AZ. Never had to go into 4wd, though.

    Hey wait a minute! You wrote colour...are from Canada, the British Isles or are you a bad speller?

    Peace!!!
