    Couple reasons, the second gens are IMO too big and heavy to really build up. I got as far as i wanted with that build and was over it. Also i was getting pretty burnt out of offroad at the time, so i sold the truck and bought a BMW ha.

    I wouldn't mind a Benz or Audi...but I don't want the maintenance costs associates wort it...I love having a truck so I can just drive through large puddles of water (when we get floodings) snow, etc...some cars can't make it through....truck? No problem.

    It was a 2010 335 M-Sport with a 6 speed manual. Had it chipped, it was fun for the first couple months till you realize if you actually get on the turbos you just get a speeding ticket. it was a lease so i never had to fork out anything for repairs. It was on a flatbed 3 times while i owned it...

    Holy crap you killed that first tundra. I assume you were hurt, but not that bad cause you got back into it. Plus the guy sitting there on the phone.

    Guy lost control of his car, came across all the lanes and nailed me right behind my rear tire. Sent me into the guardrail at 75mph. Rolled 6 times. I walked away with just a ligament messed up in my shoulder from the roof hitting it and my passenger broke his collar bone.

    Rebuilt engine, painted it bright green and hand-polished the valve cover. Lots of stickers.
    HOLY SH*T! That's nuts! Glad you didn't end up hurt worse! That poor thing is totally FUBAR!
