Truck Order Cancelled – Bought A Lexus Instead

After waiting over 2.5 months for my truck I grew a little cold and decided to look into other options. After looking at several other vehicles I decided on a 2007 Lexus IS350 and I am very satisfied with my purchase! Check out the pics:

New Truck Ordered

I finally did it – I ordered a new truck! After six years with my trusty Dodge Ram I felt it was time for something new. I had originally planned on purchasing an Acura TL, then I changed my mind and had my heart set on one of the new BMW 335i’s. After planning this purchase for almost two years Toyota introduced their new and first ever full-size truck.

I have always owned a truck but there was nothing on the market that compelled me to get another until I saw this new Toyota. Its an amazing machine with a lot of innovation and I immediately decided to go back to a truck. This is what I got (had to special order):

  • 2007 Toyota Tundra Double Cab Limited 4×4, 5.7L V8
  • Slate Metallic (Exterior)
  • Ash Leather
  • 20″ Carved Toyota Rims w/ BF Goodrich 285/65SR20 All-Terrain Tires
  • ReadyLift 2.5″ Front-End Leveling Kit
  • DVD Navigation System w/ Backup Camera
  • Toyota TRD Exhaust System
  • XM Satellite Radio
  • Cold Kit
  • Mud Guards
  • Door Sill Enhancements
  • Wheel Locks
  • Ball Mount

This is going to be a great truck and I will be sure to post pictures as soon as it arrives. I’m hoping to take delivery in late May, if not sooner. I got a great deal working with Ed Smith (210.681.6601) over at Cavender Toyota, so if you are looking at any Toyota I would recommend to give him a call!

HOWTO – Sony Ericsson GC83 & Mac OS X (Tiger)

This article was published on my old blog and is originally dated 8/29/2005. I still get numerous requests for this information so here you go:

I have posted a HOWTO for setting up your Cingular GC83 EDGE cards to work with your Mac (Tiger).

I will be revising this HOWTO and adding images, etc, but I have quite a few people waiting for these instructions, so this should work for now. Contact me if you have any questions or comments.

If you are having trouble with the modem scripts you downloaded from my HOWTO for the Sony Ericsson GC83 EDGE PC card, follow the link below:
