Happy Birthday, Grab-Her!!

Well, two years ago today, after 2 months of waiting, the site's Original Grab-Her truck was picked up from the dealership.






Little mods here and there in the first year(door handles, bedrails, antenna)...but the 2nd year, she got alot of mods and the owner really caught the mod bug thanks to all of us. It's a sickness really.





Here's the earliest known pic of the truck in existance:

Mkay....maybe not of the actual truck...but you never know! Here's the actual truck in some of the earliest known pics...

Here she is 2 years later....quite a change eh?



^^^Hard to believe this 'slammed 4x4' now looks like that^^^



Modded Grab-Her next to a stock Grabber. (The name Grab-Her only is used on this particular truck....so don't get caught calling any Grabber Ranger Grab-Her, you may get the full wrath of the Grab-Her powa! lol)

So Marie, tell that Extra Sexual Vehicle painted in Grab-Her Orange happy b-day for me. And happy B-day to you too....2 years of hotness paired together. Grab-Her is getting some B-day presents this weekend...

wow guys, really? this is worth arguing for? this is the kind of stuff that turns people away from RF. so what if he celebrates a trucks birthday. on 5/12, i wash/wax/detail my truck because that is its build date. some people are more passionate about their trucks/ others trucks because maybe their parents didnt buy their truck.

Because most of the people on here who didnt buy their truck (not trying to start trouble) arent as passionate about their cars as those who buy and service their own vehicles

I know exactly what you mean. I have a friend who's parents bought him a 06 Tacoma.. POS because of how he treats it. It disappoints me. And I don't even like it when people lean against my truck haha

Looks real good. Makes me want to put a picture timeline together for my truck. It's weird to think our trucks were stock one day.

This is a cool idea. How do I find out the build date for my truck? I'll throw it a wash/wax party -- unless it was winter, in which case I'll probably spend its birthday coating it in salt and sliding around on ice.
