    Those of you who already have picked up your 2012 Tacoma, is it the shark-fin type antenna on the roof, or is it the small bump antenna?

    Do you know how high off the roof it stands?

    My garage isn't all that tall and my '07 is within a few inches of the door, without an antenna on the roof. I'm concerned I won't be able to garage the 2012 I've ordered, because of the damn shark fin antenna.

    Thanks.

    It's not that tall. YMMV of course, however, on my 2012 TRD Sport the antenna is only about 6'2" off the ground. It's shorter than I am, in fact.

    Buy a bike tire pump. Let some air out before you garage it, and pump the tires up again when you leave. You'll be buff, and have a new truck. It's full of win! :D
