Soooo....I bought this Red 2008 D. Cab 4x4 Sr5 Sport Taco, December 2007 right when i got back from Iraq. But....what i really wanted was a Speedway Blue Metallic D. Cab 4x2 Tacoma with the same styling as my red Tacoma (hood scoop, colored bumper and grill). I did not want the 4x4 because i know i would never need it or would rarely if ever go off-roading and plus all the extra weight of a 4x4 that would reduce MPG. But i was told the only way i could still have the Color Styling/Hood Scoop was to get a 4x4. I met a guy at my Apts that drives the exact same truck as me minus the 4x4. His is a 4x2 but still has the Scoop/Color grill/bumper. He said he bought it that way. I also wanted Speedway Blue Metallic but was told that Toyota in Japan had just (at the time) been hit by a big earth quake and production was reduced to 10%....meaning there were only 10 Hood Scooped/etc. Tacoma's in TX (none of which were Blue) and would be that way for the next 3 to 4 months. I thought this was a Croc so i checked it out online and sure enough i found news about the earth quake. So being a little impatient after spending 14 months in Iraq....i didn't want to wait anymore and went ahead and settled for the Red one.
NOWWWW, I'm having feelings of regrets as gas rises(not that big a deal but still) and as i see Blue Tacoma looking awesome driving around. I have been thinking about trading in my Red 4x4 for a Speedway Blue 4x2 Tacoma if i can find one. 08 or 09, i don't care Am I crazy??? WHAT SHOULD I DO OR WHAT CAN I DO? PLEASE HELP!!

What I want instead: (of course I would transfer all my upgrades(K&N CAI, hood protector, safari bar W/ lights) to my new taco)
