    well after all the BS ive been thru with my 07 DC toyota siaid they would replace my truck with one that is close to the same MSRP as mine was when i bought it. mine now is an 07 4x2 automatic v6 DC sr5.. what can i get for the same msrp? a 2008 4cyl acess cab 4x4 with a manual trans.. other wise if i want anything close to what i have i have to put at least 3 grand prolly closer to 4 out of my pocket. and that would get me a 2009 v6 DC 4x4 six speed manual. ....i dunno what to do. i really dont have the extra cash for the DC

    I'd rather have the truck I need and some extra debt.

    Don't settle for less than you want. You'll regret it later.

    It's kind of damned if I do, damned if I don't deal cause if you settle for less you're gonna be mad for as long as you own the truck and if you pay out more money that is gonna piss you off also, I think I would get what I wanted and then at least I'd be happy with what I'm driving, you just need to convince your brain that you spent a couple bucks for an upgrade to a newer model truck

    If you bought the V6 double cab for a "reason" then you will not be happy with anything less. If you can afford it, fork out the extra cash. You will be MUCH happier in the long run.

    Why not at least replace it with the exact configuration you have now?

    well the problem i have with mine is the output shaft seal at the end of the transmission where the driveshaft goes in leaks. its been in the deaker to repair it over 6 times. the even replaced the whole tail shaft section of the trans. they have had engineers come look at it and they cant fix it !!i think you guys are right. im gonna have to bight the bulliet and just fork ou the extra cash for a little less truck but then it will be brand new again with new warranty.. i guess 5 grand is worth the extra 36 thousand miles of warranty.
