    Hey! Was in the Tacoma scene for the last few years. Bear crossed the freeway in the middle of the night right in front of me. Thanks to that bear I now have a 2013 MGM Rock Warrior! Currently has a shell, decked system, front and rear dash cams, Katzkin leather, rigid lighting front and rear, strobes all around, air bags, rear sway bar, etc. Looking forward to making it mine soon!

    Welcome Dan! Sorry to hear about the accident. Had a bear hit by a tractor trailer on the interstate nearby. My buddy, the local Fire Chief, said he had never seen anything like it....

    Wheeled her for the first time today. Went to the Desert Bar in Parker, Arizona. Completely stock suspension, but she did fine. Although she did okay, the Kings are still on order!
