My eco-snob "green car", I tie the boards on with hemp rope  ;D

What's an eco-snob? I'm unfamiliar with that concept since i live in Oregon and Maui (snicker)

Notice I don't put stickers on my car, they damage the planet  ;D 
Okay, okay, I'll quit now.  I just get politically incorrect sometimes, a character flaw or trait,,,,,,,,,,,,, depending on your point of view.   ;)
It takes a quiver to do that.

You two fire fighter guys should talk to Gary from the srfnff blog- he's a retired fire fighter and he still has a back and legs and stuff!

Bob,
 I like all of your stickers on your PU (would that be a SUPPU?). I spy one of mine on there, cool!
e-mail me your address and size and I'll send you the tee-shirt to match.

Toyotas work for me.  I cut custom notches in the thule uprights to get the crossbars a bit lower.  Easier to load on those days when you can barely lift your arms over your head.

Sure is Bob...the one in the top left corner in the rear window is one of yours too. Wish I could say I picked them up myself. My buddy Mike (ECsup) was out there this fall visiting his son and picked them up. I've got one of your folding ball caps and a t-shirt too.... ;D

Tacoma Quad Cab owners, a few questions:

1) Are the factory roof racks sturdy enough for a 10-0 light epoxy SUP?  How's the quality of those racks overall?

2) Can you get a 10-0 in the shortbed model for short hop trips?

High petrol costs forced me to sell my 4x4 and buy a little zook.

Toyota double cab roof racks are sturdy.  They are aluminum, with an aero cross section.  They are curved to match the roof.  They are hinged, and can swing 90 degrees to lock into the mount.  Overall, a very good design. 

Your 10 footer should fit in a 5 foot bed.  12-6's fit in my 6 foot bed.
