Personally I would not buy it just to have it sit until you get back from Europe. I really don't see the prices increasing dramatically any time soon.

Well, assuming that you aren't taking the truck with you, I'd wait until you're back in the US.Your truck would be sitting for a long time. Anything that sits for too long isn't a good thing: Seals harden up, gas and oil go bad, battery goes bad, etc etc etc. Doesn't seem worth it to me. Besides, the prices don't seem fantastic enough to make it a signifigantly better deal. The recession will probably be around for awhile, so I think you'll be good to go when you come back.

ON second thought you can buy it, leave it with me and I will drive it for you until you get back. That way the truck does not have to sit

3 years is what they are saying right now, i have a 06 but im torn between paying 350 for a truck for 3 years just to pay it off and sell it back and then buy it.
550/month is worth it but cant take the truck and drive it in Europe anywhere.

but it is the DREAM TRUCK. you guys know that one,
mine is the new pyrite mica one with the 6speed manual 4.0l v6 4x4 double cab... i want it so bad and they have it and flaunt it in my face callin me every so often and telling me they can get sold for 28,900 for the trd sport with the trade in.

If it were me I'd sell the one you've got, keep the cash, buy when you get back. The Tacoma is supposedly going to be re-designed in 2012, or about the same time you're getting back. If you buy one now, in three years it'll be the "old style".

I don't know what you are doing right now or what your personal finances look like- But I would hold off making a big decision like that right now...

Hold on to what you got and get thru boot and see what is best when you get done from there. There will always be another truck- or you can have them build the perfect on when you come back.

If you are in Europe, you should buy a Hilux, then try to bring it back to the states when you return.

Definitely wait, and sell your current truck before you go. There's no point in keeping it if you're not going to keep it anyway. That way you can save up while you're gone, put that money you were chunking in the old for a down payment on the new... get a lower payment in the end with the truck you really want... all without not missing it while you're gone. That'd drive me nuts knowing I have a new truck sitting at home, unable to use it for 3 years.... ..... ....

Don't want to burst your bubble here, but just because you WANT to get stationed in Europe, doesn't mean you will. Go to any base and ask how many (on the east coast) wanted the west coast and vise versa. You could end up in FL or Korea or Hawaii or close to where you are now. You have boot and part of tech school before you find out where you will be going. That could be only three months or 9 months (depending on your job-length of school) Just wait and if you are only talking a few months, the '09s will be on the way out and the '10's on the way in....

ok i understand, air traffic control is weird because both my uncle and father are retired air control. they said, for us it is weird, we just get stationed, no real deployments (unless you request) but the chance is still there. so i kinda know whats going on. but i guess you are talking from experience, plus you are in now so you would know and i love the feedback.
PS recruiters ARE liars!!!! they would lie to anyone to boost the numbers!
but i got most of my stuff in writing. so im stoked. but i hear you man.

You can get 28,900 without the trade in. Sounds like they aren't giving anything for your truck.

I would keep your truck till it is paid for, or sell it yourself. That is if you can take the truck with you. I would go buying a new one for it to sit & lose value for 3 years.
