Some of you gave me some good advice in this thread on what Taco I should buy:
Well, I finally ended up pulling the trigger on a 2011 TRD Sport 4X4 double cab in Magnetic Grey Metallic.
I test drove an off road package as well, and I was extremely impressed with both. I found that the Sport package rode a little better on the highway and also handled a bit better, which made more sense to me since the truck will be on the pavement for 96.832% of its life.
The truck also has the tow package and a six disc changer / sat. radio (not sure if this is standard or not). I love driving this truck - it rides like a car compared to my old Ranger.
I got the truck for $506 over invoice, which I thought was more than fair. I was kind of saddened that the truck didn't come with floor mats, but I went and ordered some Weathertech floor liners anyways.
The next purchases will most likely me things like step bars, bug shield, and window rain shields. Eventually I will buy some black wheels and maybe even a grill if anyone decides to make one that easily bolts right on.
Thanks for the help everyone - it really is a great truck!
