i have been lurking on this forum for over a year now; talking about getting a tacoma. but i have been dragging my heals about purchasing one because i am upsidedown on a lease on another vehicle. i am 4 months from the end of that lease and my wife and i agreed that it would be ok to make 2 truck payments for a while. so, i started looking for a 2009, 4x4, DC, off-road, short bed, magnetic gray, but no dealer in so cal could find a 2009. so i started searching for a 2010, but the 2010's are rolling in sooo slowly and they are picked up as soon as they show up on the lot. i could order one, but who knows how long that would take.
so, last thursday, the guys at the santa monica dealer said that they had the exact truck i wanted (except it was in silver, not the gray) coming in on saturday. silver was my second choice in color so i thought i should jump on it while i had the chance. so my wife took me down to the dealer... and.... Tah-Dah!!!!
a 2010 4x4, DC, off-road, shortbed, automatic, JBL, floor mats...
black skid plates and tow hooks
my first mod.... of many i am sure...
i owe my wife big time!! she knew i have been wanting a tacoma for quite some time and (partly just to shut me up about it ) she agreed that i could go ahead with it. she has been so supportive of me.... yay wifey
eventually, i will be mildly lifting it and putting on larger tires, but that will have to wait until next year.
