Soon, real soon

So my financing is in order with my credit union. As soon as my local dealer can find my 2009 Prerunner DC SB V6/Auto TRD Sport White/Graphite I will own my first Toyota Tacoma. Supposedly there is one in port to be delivered to the dealership 08-18 but I'm ready NOW!

Moving from a Lexus IS300. I've had GM fullsize trucks all my life and I think the Tacoma will suit my needs great, and recognize the legendary Toyota reliability.

I've learned a lot just reading here, thanks all. A couple of question:

Seeing the above description of the truck I am hunting, what would you add if you were in my shoes?

Do most of the Tacomas that fit my description come with the Tow Package or should I request that seperately?

I'll try being nicer if you try being smarter.

Welcome.

I think if it is a TRD it somes with the tow package. Trust me the wait is worth it. Congrats.

Welcome! I would say get 4x4 if you ever have plans of offroading, going in the snow, mud, sand, etc. If not stick with the prerunner you are looking at and get a little better gas mileage.

Two wheel drive will suit me fine for the next few years at least since I live in FL. Thanks for the welcome!

That's disappointing!!

Took me 3 months to get things in order for my Tacoma. I'm picking it up tomorrow at 2:00. It's an '09 4.0 4x4 SR5 Access Cab. I'm extremely excited!

Be patient and I'm sure that things will work out for you in September when the '10's are on the lot. I'm sure it will be worth the wait!

Cheers.

I can't wait til the Cash for Clunkers thing is over. With my local dealerships it's as if business is *too* good, their customer service sucks.
