    Lack of required punctuation makes this hurt to read.
    Decide what you want. Price it online. See what a dealer can do for you.
    In my experience they were all about the same on a truck that needed to be ordered.

    Don't discuss your down payment until you get a price.

    Have you tried financing through Toyota? Just bought my 2013 Double cab Sport 4 days ago and got 0.9% through Toyota, my bank was 4.9%.

    Hi,
    I'd keep the cash in the bank (if you can keep your hands of it) and take all the cheap financing you can get. Yes you get next to nothing on interest on your savings but if you have an unforseen need you have ready access to the cash no need to take out a loan at most likely a higher rate than the vehicle loan. You can always pay extra on the loan if you want. Its also a good way to bolster your credit score by showing you are dependable over the long term making payments. Financing through the dealer sometimes gets you a better price as they get a cut on the financing. I financed both my Tacoma and Elantra Touring through the manufacturers finance at a much better rate than my bank or credit union. You can set up automatic payments or do it one line so no need to write and mail a check.

    No advice on the Tacoma options. 4x4's have done nothing but get me into trouble so the PreRunner was the best choice for me.

    Jim

    you definitely want a locker if you don't want to scrape it up

    without a locker, you can creep up a trail, but when you get stuck you often
    have no option but to add some speed and attack it again....this may lead to a bang
    or scrape (usually anything you hit in the underside at slow speeds will be minor,
    truck love scrapes actually :)

    with a locker, when you get stuck or stopped crawling at 1mph, you hit the locker [and wiggle
    the truck just enough to engage it if it doesn't engage immediately] and just add
    gas and see what the rear ends does....most times you just move forward, or mostly
    the butt will wiggle and find grip. far less need to hit it with speed, lessening the chance
    of banging into something

    I can tell you that the ARB lockers I had front and rear on my Jeeps have been great, and cost a mere fraction of the OR package.

    I'd tell you to go aftermarket and save all of that money - but I can understand that its nice to have everything warrantied.

    It might not hurt to price out the options of the aftermarket.

    Also, I owned three Subarus (One Impreza and two leggies). Car seats fit fine in mine, and it was a lot easier for small people to climb in and out of than the truck. Just offering up that option as well.

    I just bought a 13' double cab 4x4 TRD OFFROAD two weeks ago loaded with the JBL/Navigation/entune package. I love it! At first I was going to finance through my bank at a 2.9% rate but i ended up going through Toyota at a 2% and they offered a free extended warranty for financing with them. Recieved a 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty and the first two year of maintenance free. I normally finance everything through my bank but that was a no-brainer.

    Dude, keep your cash in the bank and through the right investments you can earn more interest on it than you will be paying on the truck loan. Also by going into a dealer with cash in hand usually doesn't get you a better deal becasue the dealer is going to get there money either way. In fact the dealership recieves money from Toyota financial by gettting you to finance with them and a lot of times they will take that off the sale price in order to get the price down and make a sale. Go at the end of the month and play hard ball.

    Good LUCK with your upcoming purchase..

    I think it's interesting how some are saying go with the sport if you are about the looks and go with the off-road if you're looking for traction ... I think the off-road looks better than the sport (not a fan of the scoop) - so in my opinion I got the best of both worlds ;)

    But like others have said - the off-road guys lean that way and the sport guys lean their way.

    Get the brochure -
    http://a230.g.akamai.net/7/230/2320...13/tacoma/eBrochure/tacoma_condensed_ebro.pdf

    Look at the packages - decide what you like and go for it - in the end you will be getting a great truck!

    Welcome to the family :D

    If you've decided on a specific configuration, you might still be able to find a 2012, which may save you some money on sale price, taxes, and/or insurance. Unless one of the minor changes between MY2012 and MY2013 is important to you, it's worth considering.

    WIth that in mind, I paid $30,350 out-the-door for a 2012 DCSB OR with the Tow Package. If you want, I can post a photo of the window sticker later.

    That would be great! I'm looking to get the TRD OR package with the JBL for $32k OTD I think (before adding leather). Plus I think I'm going to have the dealer add leather and heated seats and push for getting that done at dealer cost.

    I'll dig it up for you.

    I'll be very surprised if you can manage all of that for $32k. Dealers know they're in a strong position with Tacomas, which is why you rarely see much of a rebate, and resale value is so high. What does Edmunds think would be a fair price?

    No, I think I did a poor job communicating there. $32k before the leather/heated seats. There is a dealership here that uses "True Price" and has the TRD OR with JBL for $31,500. I'm hoping to do a bit better than that as my understanding of "True Price" is an average selling price. For as many people but these trucks closer to sticker price, I'm hoping to be on the opposite side of that bell curve below average. What price do you guys think I should be looking for before the leather seats?

    So total OTD I'd like to be close to $33,500 or so.

    I expect that my taxes will be close to $2500.

    My hopes are these:
    2013 TRD OR with JBL for just shy of $31k. Heated/leather seats for ~$1k. So I supposed that'd put my total around $32k so OTD for close to $35k. Looks like my first numbers were a touch off haha. :eek:

    I think the only other options I would be interested in adding are the roof rack and weather techs. If the leather is $2k I'll have a hard time justifying that... Though the leather would be for the wife (and offspring at some point).

    Taxes and any other governmental fees vary too much for that amount to be factored into an "Out The Door" price. Add-ons are similarly irrelevant, but could be broken out to possibly allow a comparison of identically equiped vehicles. For instance, if I paid my dealer to upgrade the tires on my truck, that expense shouldn't factor into a comparison with a truck running the regular OEM tires.

    To me, OTD means as far as the dealership is concerned, the OTD amount is how much was paid to them for a specific vehicle, with specific options/packages. In my case, I paid USD$30,350 for a 2012 DCSB OR with the Tow Package. I believe there was a minor convenience package included in that price, but I'd have to look at the window sticker to give specifics. If someone wanted to compare my OTD price to theirs, they'd need to match up the same details for there to be much relevance to the comparison.

    So, I've been reading pretty extensively that the Rugged Trails that come on the OR are total crap in the snow. Has anyone successfully negotiated a tire swap with a dealership? I'd like to get some DuraTracs instead of the Rugged Trails and just pay the difference (about $200). Does anyone know if a dealership is likely to do this?

    You'd have a better idea by checking what similar take-offs are selling for in your area on Craigslist.

    You can ask a dealer about working with you on a tire swap, but don't expect much luck with that. If they do their own tire work, you might be able to get them to agree to mounting a set for free, though.
