No, there were other cars blocking the only drive that those can roll out of. Besides kinda scared my work boots would get hung up in all those petals in the tunnel. Speedo goes to 220. If it was a used car though id drive the fire out if it!

Pretty big spot on the inside corner of bed floor, and another is starting on the other side.
- sorry toyota guys but toyota probly wont be warrantying much after the new $17.35million, recall fine. Toyos have really bad corrision problembs of late, and many other probs are starting to plague them.

Seems that way! It says texas, but I'm sure its enginered and specd. Overseas.
- We see more quality related problems than with any other manuf. .
I did not realize how flimsy the beds were till today. Without the tailgate in the upwards position, you could easily misalign the whole rear of the bedside with VERY minimal effort.

Thought this was funny, someone at work snapped this pic of me goofing off, and my boss just texted it to me saying "Merry Christmas". We had been putting together a bunch of bikes together that the dealership bought to give to kids.
