    The interiors of the 2011s adn the 2012s look pretty similar...you guys think it's pretty feasible to swap the 2012 into teh 2011? Mainly talking about the center of the dash with all of the entertainment stuff adn the steering wheel and spedometer cluster stuff.

    Mainly thinking of this due to the fact I've got a reall good deal on a 2011 pending instead of waiting another 4 months for a 2012 to come into Europe! Fuuuuuuuuu...!

    So yeah...possible?

    Definitely possible but no way all the parts would be cheap. Might be a little wiring involved for the wheel not sure if all the electronics inside the wheel are the same.

    I'm definitely feeling squirly enough to try to hook it up. I really do like the design of the wheel for the 2012s comapared to the 2011s

    Just make sure that the drivers airbag is interchangeable with the two different steering wheels.

    just get a ’12. in white. unlike most on here i personally like them. i don’t like it in black or the base model 4x4/pre runner in AC or DC. white looks really good. the red and the dark gray or what ever it is.

    yeah. i know what you mean i was looking for like 3 months when i found my truck. ’07 silver DCSB it had right under 25k on it. ( i think when i rolled off the lot it had 24’965. but i REALLY REALLY wanted a speed way blue. and i found one but it was a 6 speed and not 4WD. i did not really want to wait any longer.

    Definitely, I really don't have too much to negotiate on price since they are the only US spec dealer here in Europe so at least they're giving me a deal since they F'd up the original deal with my 12 supposedly being here two weeks ago. That and it will be what I want, TRD Off-Road, 4x4, tow package, auto. No real gripes other than I didn't have my 2012 two weeks ago.

    I see that you're military. Buy a Hilux and bring it with you when you come back? Can you even do that? You would be unique then!
