    Just got a brand new '10 TRD Sport DC in Barcelona Red last night. Love this thing. Traded in my '08 Base DC in Impulse Red, both are 4x4/auto.
    Don't have any good pics of the Sport due to rain, but here are a couple in the garage last night and some of my '08. The '08 had the rear suspension TSB done and a front level lift with larger Nittos and AR Mojave wheels. Gave it a good stance.
    Besides the rear suspension TSB and floor mat issues, is there anything else the '10s have that needs fixin'? I skimmed through the site last night but nothing jumped out at me concerning them. Thanks!

    Not sure yet. If I end up getting the TSB on the rear end done then I might as well. It makes the rear end sit so high compared to the front that I like how it balances it out. Of course then it will need the bigger tires to look right. See where this can go don't you? :)

    The Silverado in the garage is my brother's. He's really considering a Taco or Tundra now!

    Thank you VERY much! I was wondering about that. If its what I think it is my co-worker just got his fixed, said they hooked up to the computer and it took only 15min., had to reprogram something.

    Edit to add, just looked, can't find the TSB on the transmission. Anyone know where it is?

    Rear suspension TSB, transmission TSB, buy Weathertech digitalfit floormats (won't get stuck), and you may need a new propeller shaft depending upon when yours was made (this is a recall though). Also I heard from a Toyota employee that a recall for the Tacoma accelerator pedal is also in the works, though I don't know if this is really legit or not.

    Production date on mine is 2/10, barely a month off the assembly line. I'll check out those floormats too. Thanks for the other info.

    There is a recall for something else. Also watch for any rust. There has been talk about that. I have a '10 built last year and have some issues with mine but no rust. Got Trans/Susp TSb done and my trans still does not seem right. Going back in to look at that. Other than those enjoy.
