    which trim has the back camera?

    I know the x-runner has one

    what about the regular truck without the trd? do they have one too?
    i saw that the back up camera is on the rear-view mirror
    that's awesome!!!

    the sport gets it...not the off road...and the screen is kinda tiny...but hopefully has a good interface to tap into for a dvd headunit

    LSD (w/ the auto), curtain airbags, and atrac/vsc are the big new basics on the tacos

    the OR package is more than the sport one starting in 09 b/c of the fact that the LSD w/ Auto is a standard item. doesnt mean that the OR went up, just that the sport package price dropped

    I just made the same decision. I was looking at deals on 09s and 08s. For the money I decided on the 08. I did buy June 30th so I got the $2000 rebate.

    I just thought the 09 had too much stuff. That subwoofer was also horrifying.

    You can't make a bad decision here so don't worry. I would price out an 08 and an 09 you want, and compare the difference in stuff with the difference in price. If you feel like $4000 more is worth it for the camera, audio w/ sub, etc. than have at it.

    i lvoe those stuff, but I dont want to pay out of the ass on it either

    I can install the stuff myself anyway, I may take longer to do it but I can do it.

    I love the back up camera on the rear-view mirror. its pretty cool. also the side air-bag is a great feature.. I can flip the truck down the hill and I'll feel like i'm in a big ballon!

    I'm sure the dealers would want to piss the 08 out since the 09 is already coming in... hard to decide!!! Also I like the Fj crusier *sigh*

    If you ask me that camera is a waste of money. Go to Toyota and look at how small the screen is. Then put the truck towards the sun and try looking at it. I wish they would incorporate the camera like they do in the Lexus RS 300. You put it in reverse and your navigation screen flips on with a nice big screen shot.
