    It's finally up there, you can price with with the new colors and everything. Also, the build-your-own preview picture has been updated with the butt ugly tails as well.

    Also, that Pyrite Mica color looks pretty good on the Tacoma.

    Hmmm.

    Might be my zip code but:
    No TRD-Off Road Package for the 4x4 DC (TRD Sport only).
    No TRD Sport for the 4x4 Access Cab (TRD Off-Road Only).

    I like the Green.

    Yeah, the short beds can choose from both TRD Off-Road or Sport but the long beds can only get the sport. I don't know about that Access Cab, though.

    I was using their build your own on-line configuration tool. Perhaps it's just not complete or like I said above maybe it limits your options based on zip-code.

    Picking Double-Cab 4x4 short shows three options:
    Option A: basic truck with a towing package $690
    Option B: SR5 $1790
    Option C: TRD Sport $4065

    Long bed:
    Option A: SR5 $1790
    Option B: SR5-2 $3160
    Option C: TRD Sport $4065

    Looking in the research section under options, I see that they're both available, but there's no zipcode data taken either.

    It doesn't really matter to me anyway, since I'm happy with mine.

    I think the site relies heavily on your zip code. I cant even build an X-Runner or a 6-speed pre-runner with my zip. :confused:

    That gray is hot, but I'm still sad they took out the Indigo Ink color...just glad I got my 08 in the color I wanted.

    Interesting, all have VSC or when you disengage it, an Auto-LSD. TRD Off-road gets A-TRAC like the FJ. Also keeps locker, DAC, HAC. But no unique traction device for TRD Sport, the Mech LSD is gone. About $1000 increase across the board.

    Saw the new gray and green colors yesterday on the lot. They look good, but if I were in the market, the glut of 08's for $4K+ off would look even better.

    Appears the mpg rating for the 6spd 4x4 V6 changed yet again. Was 16/20, then 15/18 under new testing, now 14/19.

    My dealer has 12 of them, the green and the new grey color are awsome. I hate the rear seat area in the acsess cabs, but i love the addition of the sub. Also the mp3 and satelite radio is a nich tuch. Also i hate the rear lights. Other then that the only other new thing i can see is the front head lights the center of the grills is grey and it has a satelite antena on the roof. and also blue tooth phone controles on the right side of the steering wheel.
