We goofed last summer and bought an '09 Access Cab, 4 cylinder, 2WD in black. We wanted the 2WD for the MPG, but we didn't want black.
As we normally don't spend winters on Long Island where we live (we manage boats in the summer and head to the BVI in the winter to teach scuba), we didn't think we needed 4WD.
Well, we wound up spending last winter on Long Island and the 2WD wasn't really a problem as we didn't have to use the truck much anyway. But just 3 weeks ago, I spent over and hour digging the truck out of a gravel parking lot! I almost had to call for a tow!
Not crazy about the black (looks dirty right after washing), very not crazy about the 15" skateboard wheels on the truck, and, now, VERY not crazy about 2 WD, we headed back to the dealer to trade in for a 4 cylinder 4x4.
We had located a Timberland Mica that was available from another dealer as a swap, but we just found out yesterday the dealer sold it out from under us.
The upside is there's a 2010 Magnetic Gray SR5, SL package being built week of August 10 that the dealer said would probably be on hand by end of August.
I was wondering where these are being built and how quickly they make there way from point A (plant) to point B (Long Island dealer). Any ideas??
