    Well, sad to say, but the tacoma got traded in this afternoon. It just wasn't as versitile as I needed it to be at this stage in my life anymore. So it got traded in for a new 2011 4Runner. I will still be around here though, although maybe not as often. I'm looking forward to starting a new build and will frequently post up some pics for you guys. Here is one last glamour shot of the Taco.

    Truck is being traded at Springhill Toyota in Mobile. However, I think they already sold it even though I will still be driving it the rest of the week till my new one arrives.

    :( Sorry you needed to sell that truck. It's freakin' beautiful.
    :) Congrats on the new vehicle. Not a bad upgrade.
    :cool: Too bad you couldn't keep both.

    I came REALLY close to trading my Taco for a new 4Runner. Man it was sweet, all the bells and whistles my truck doesn't have, and it looked nice. It was going to be basically the same payments and everything.

    I turned it down because I didn't want to extend my loan out again, I'm still happy with the Taco, and because many times I really need a truck.

    Maybe when this one gets old enough it can't be a daily driver, I'll get a nice 4Runner.

    Benca1 dad owns the dealership so he always takes care of me. He wanted the truck as is so I left everything on it and he just made me a sweet sweet deal.

    Was not versatile enough? BS. Lame excuse.

    Now you don't have a truck. You will miss that too.

    It's OK to trade your Taco off if you want, but don't say it is not versatile
    enough. A crew cab truck of any make is the most versatile vehicle on this planet.

    You will see.

    Very pretty truck....We just traded our 08 Sienna for a 11, and our 04 4Runner on my 11 Tacoma. Sticking with Toyota is a good thing, and you won't go wrong with a 4Runner. I loved mine.
