    Hi, I'm Jason. Just got my new Tacoma last Thursday. Traded in a Saturn Ion Redline. We are looking to do some kayaking so I started looking at used trucks. It turned out a lease on a new Toyota had cheaper monthly payments than financing a used truck so I went that route. My first priority is figuring out how I want to transport kayaks; roof rails, bed mount, or tow them on a trailer. Any recommendations would be appreciated. So far I'm absolutely loving this truck. Here is a dealer pic of the truck. I haven't had a chance to take anymore yet.

    Jason, once that lease is up we're all hoping you'll buy one so you can mod the hell out of it. Kayaking is just the beginning. I can't see that being done on a lease. So my hope for you is a purchase of a new truck when the 3rd generation comes out. By then, we'll all be staring at you with envy. LOL. :D

    Thanks for all the welcomes.

    I modded the hell out of my previous car. The only mods I'll be doing to this one are functional ones. In the next couple of years I'd like to get a small boat so I'm hoping I'll be able to install a hitch under the lease. Otherwise I'll have to stick with kayaks and get one of those US Racks that mount in the bed with no drilling.

    That's what I'm leainng towards right now.

    Edit: Here is another pic. I'm loving the silver!
