Thanks guys, I know it was like 194 plus tax.. But i was reading some other threads and people were saying that you have to extend the power cable cause it was to short but its cause they bought the wrong one. Its the D35 model that bolts right on the second gen tacomas.. I'll post some pics tomorrow cause its dark out and the pics wont come out to good.

Can't wait for pics. I want to get one, but the site says I need a "bottom adapter," whatever the hell that is.

Yeah, its like a plastic spacer that clips on the bottom and brings it up about an inch.The adaptor came with the battery its not something you need to special order. Before my taco would strugle to turn on when cold and now it starts like a brand new car.. Im happy

I recently put one in my truck, I love it.
Stock battery would be dead if I let it sit for more than a week or two, but now, no problems

Nice! I have a yellow top too but I didn't notice any change on how my truck or electronics run. I don't think a battery makes a difference but it's nice to know that I can run my stereo for a longer period of time.

Here's mine installed

I ordered it thru these guys http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/...ef1bda88400858

Only $45 shipped...There are similar boxes on ebay and I believe Demello makes a box similar to mine but there's is more expensive. It comes raw steel so I just painted it with bedliner out of a can.
