The New Year is coming up fast and I have updated my hyperlinks

Today I finished updating the photo's hyperlinks regarding all the modifications I have conducted and recorded on my Toyota Tacoma 4x4.

The links are located on the TTORA website's Garage threads.

This includes all the suspension, frame reinforcement, bumpers, OBA and other stuff.

Hope you enjoy it and let me know if you have any questions.

Take care!

Hope you and your family have a safe and fun Christmas and a even Better New Year!

I am blessed to have a wonderful wife and son first...
then our new home that we built this year.
Even with my operation on my knee I am so thankful for Dr. Ray for doing a great job.
Plus that my friend's girlfriend was not injured when my truck got away from me when my knee buckled from under me.

God and our family was looking out for her.
So Merry Christmas and talk to you all later!

My Knee...repaired :)

Well...6-am Cindy & I headed to the hospital.
After getting ready and the Dr. Gas man came in to do his evaluation. The last thing I said to Cindy was "hey I can feel it in my hand"...then I was out! A few hours later...I was in my hospital room and Cindy there. Big wrap around my knee. My Doctor came in and told me that when he looked inside, he had replaced my ACL, placed an implant for the Articular Cartilage and fixed a tear in my Meniscus. Three amazing thing is that when my Doctor arrived, we were talking and I was sitting at the edge of the bed with my knee at 90-degrees....I do have that wonderful knee bending machine. He only wants me to bend it to a max of 45 degrees and only toe-touching. He also took a bunch of photos of the operation...I asked him to do that. So, when I visit him next week for follow-up, I will get them from him.
I was released at 1130-am Wednesday (Dec 17)...spent the afternoon laying on the sofa with my machine. It is good to be home. It's going to be an interesting 6-weeks of not going to work.

Cya around and I will keep you all updated.

Some more pics...

2010 the new roadster arrives!

Well...the official photos for the new BMW Z4 are out on the here they are for you.

Overall, I am pleased on the design, the rear has the look of the 6-series.
The front grill looks different...guess I will have to see it in person.
I am SO GLAD that the side mirrors are NORMAL and not have those crazy turn signals built in with the egg-yoke lights.
The interior is also very nice, way better than the current Z4 (sorry guys)...the new one is aiming back to be DRIVER-Orientated.
The side gills are okay.
Should be interesting to see the specs and the Z4 in person around May of next year.

2010 BMW Z4

Just saw some pics of the new 2010 and a better graphic photo of the Z4...much better!

If this is a true representation of the Z4, I like it.

Better lines....can't wait to see it in person.

My knee - 25 years in the making!

Well, I saw the surgeon and my ACL is torn and I have a piece missing from by cartilage, the one on the femur Well, I knew or knee that this was coming, I just needed to know how bad was bad. I can hobble with out my crutches. But not for long.
I have been more interested in the Pre-OP requirements, than the Post-OP...which I know that it is all about Physical Therapy.
I plan to call next week to schedule the surgery...hoping it will happen this year.
According to the will be 2-3 days no weight on the foot.
2-weeks of some weight on the foot
6-weeks until no crutches.
1 year plus of rehab! That will be fun.

I have already started preparing to work at home....
Going to be an interesting year.
