    Hello all.

    I have a thread in new members area but thought I should start one here.

    Bought the truck with 16 miles on it from the dealer ship about three months ago.

    I'm an outside sales rep fora few outdoor companies so this is basically on 9-5 office. so I'm going to be putting the miles on her but already I love this truck.... quick pic from the road.

    For Christmas my wife got me a new nose and I could not be happier.

    No big up dates at the moment. I'll be posting more pics soon. Already have 9600 miles on the truck... Like I said I'm an outside sales rep for a few outdoor /action sports companies so this truck is going to see a lot of miles.

    Is the Baja lifted?
    Do you know what size those tries are off hand?
    I can't put my finger on it but either the Baja is lifted more then the Pre-Runner / 4x4 models or it has smaller tires?
    I'm glad theres finally a tacoma that comes with BFG TA/KO's..

    How's the noise in the Access Cab? Do the rear doors still rattle a lot offroad, or does the suspension help lessen it?

    yes
    It is.

    Nice truck, and it sounds like it's going to live an eventful life. I'm not a fan of the bed graphic, but I think it looks best on black.

    Thanks.

    yeah on the graphics to be honest I'm not/wasn't either.... it has sort of grown on me though since it is black on black... if the truck was a different color I would have taken them off ASAP as they are pretty "brocoma"... Also I fear if I begin to take them off the paint wont look quite right under them and once they are off it's too late.

    She wil lead a very eventful and well cared for life. I really enjoy the drive time I get with the truck...

    haven't heard any rattling on this thing so far... Suspension does seem to help I drove my buddies truck and it does feel different.

    Very interesting. I'm keeping an eye out for a 2013 Baja in black. I've been stuck between the cab/bed sizes though. I want the Double Cab for the cab room and more quietness, but I really like the 6' bed length of the Access Cab. I currently have a 2012 TRD Sport Access Cab and the rattling gets annoying.

    Those rims are a bad choice by Toyota for those who want to go Off Road. The headlock has a lip that's a Debris trap which throws the wheels off balance. The rim also corrodes behind the beadlock due to trapped moisture.
