Very Nice!!!

The girlfriend wants one of those soooo bad. I told her that the only chance she has of getting one is if it is white. You do not see many white Rovers... period. That one looks awesome!

Is the suspension sucked in all the way on that pic? Almost looks like the thing is lowered.

Nice truck! You need to paint it blue, though!

Yeah, I have been poking around over there for the last few weeks. I have a 2010 Tundra on order, so I have been trying to get up to speed on it. I can't wait for the new truck to get here!

I got the Painters coming over to give me an estimate. They said i can $ave Big if I don't require them to use Drop-clothes...

A couple years back, they had a nice Dark Blue, but the blue they curretly have didn't do anything for me.

Tundra hu. Tundra is a cool truck. Looking forward to seeing the pics. Which model/Packages/color you get?

Pics from yesterday taking the X-Star out of the lake for the season and taking it to Buckeye for Winter Storage... see you in 6 months!

Touareg tows the X-star like a champ.... air suspension keeps the truck level too... Accelleration is great as 1-4th gear is close ratio and 5-6 is spaced out for fuel ecomony. Rarely even on incline does the truck kick down more than one gear going 60-65 mph down the highway.

Mind you no mountains to climb.
