    Hey everyone.

    I'm new to the forum and just picked up my 5th new Tacoma!! Obviously I like them alot. Each one seems a little better than the last, but I'm really impressed with the ride quality of this truck...very smooth, yet sporty and firm. BTW, My truck came with 4 leaf springs (Canadian truck, the bottom one is quite short and thick). I'm not sure if this is the same as the TSB done on earlier trucks. Here's a pic I took shortly after i picked it up.

    I am really kicking myself in the ass for not getting that color. I went with Timberland Mica, but everytime I see one of these, I am jealous.

    Then again, I would have had to wait for one of these in a long bed with the options I wanted.

    I have the MGM, but it was a hard choice between that and the Timberland... What really ended up making my choice was the fact that Toyota Canada didn't/doesn't offer the AC 4x4 TRD offroad in Timberland. Otherwise, who knows? Oh, and my girlfriend says "people who choose green vehicles tend to be more intelligent." I don't know where she heard that from, but does it make you feel better?:p

    Oh, and to OP, welcome, eh! Heck of a nice truck you've got there. Mine also came with the proper springs right out of the gate. What other years of truck have you had, since this is your 5th?
