Thumbs up Hopefully soon!

Hi,

So the wife has been really busting my balls about getting rid of my car (2011 Subaru STi Hatch) and getting at truck (2012 Tacoma TRD).

In all honesty, a truck will be a lot more practical for my family so as much as it breaks my heart to say this, I'm actually on board!

I have two children (4.5 & 2.5 years old). You should see how much crap we have to haul around now and it's only going to get worse...

I currently have an Acadia, and thought that would be more than enough room for us... but it's getting to the point where we need a truck bed. I'm borrowing my dads truck quite often even just dealing with house/yard stuff..

Lastly, I'm also getting into hunting/camping so an off road 4x4 would be valuable to have. (plus I can put a quad in the back at some point )

My 2011 STi is actually my 3rd one so I've been in the Sti game since 2005.

While I'll be sad to see her go, I do look forward to a truck!

Cheers,

Jay (<-first post!)

Welcome Jay!

You will not be disappointed with a Tacoma! I am with you on needing a truck, I don't know what I would have done without mine!

Welcome aboard. I got rid of my 2012 WRX a few weeks ago and picked up a 2013 Tacoma DCLB. Night and day difference, in a good way. I do miss the Subaru a lot though.

Good choice I say!

Good choice on a truck! My wife told me we needed a truck instead of my xB and I bought a DCLB for that reason.

Welcome to TW. I am just like you. I traded in my 2007 SWP STI for my first Tacoma. I really miss it, but I've really enjoyed having a truck again. I keep looking at the new STIs, maybe I will own one again.
