Pros: it has a skewp!!
Cons: More than likely Toyota will completely redesign the Tacoma within the next 2 years and I think this design will be short lived

I like mine, cons if you the tailgate hard it"s really cheap it would never hold up to any abuse. 12 volt outlet don't work unless the key is on which sucks if you want to charge a phone. My biggest complaints, no heated mirrors, drum brakes in rear. Rides and handles nice for a truck check one out you make the call.

I got one about 3 weeks ago and really like it. The stock bridgestone tires are gay but if you get something more aggressive it really sets it off. All in all I love it, perfect for what I need.

I just bought one yesterday and I love it!

I love my 2012 double cab long bed. Lots of cool features, plenty of power. Only complaint is brakes are kinda weaker then usual. Slightly sponges feel. Other than that I recommend.

get the off road... much more usable stuff... the color matched shit and fake scoop shit are worthless and can't help with anything that the mechanical features in the off road.

Pick mine up tomorrow, test drove it for a long time today. It did good in the snow, ride was solid, just a hint of bumpiness. Hood scoop didnt bother me.
At first I was bothered by the fact it didnt have a locker then I realized in 10 years of owning my Ford diesel it never went off road. Combine that with the fact I'll never use low range and locker on the street and it is a no brainer. Great street truck with good visibility out of the crew cab.
I plan on having the factory supercharger installed once spring rolls around and I sell my 2009 Corvette

I bought my 2012 4x4 DCSB TRD Sport tonight.

I have to do a little re-arranging in the garage, the truck barely fits, the front screws for the license plate are pressed against the cabinets in front and the garage door when closed is 2" from the rear bumper.

I want to go out and drive it but I don't want to mess with squeezing it back in the garage afterward.

Did you get your free $1K debit card from Toyota? Only last two days left, my dealer didn't even tell me about it.

I saw a 2012 at my dealership with the same crappy 3-leaf pack that bottoms. Why the hell has Toyota not started putting 4 leaf packs on all new models?!

Pros: Nice styling and performance, customizable and not terrible to work on.
Cons: TSBs for the cheap parts (steering shaft, blower motor, squeeky leaf packs that never seem to get fixed fully.
