    ROFL! Oh wait, that should be :( since I plan to buy one this Spring.

    I figure that if I asked a Toyota exec why the base model doesn't come with any features, his response would probably be, <Japanese>"Sir, you are lucky we even make that truck at all!"</Japanese>

    According to Toyota.com, the base model 2013 Taco comes "standard" with:
    So theoretically, the newest Tacomas all do have traction control, but maybe some of the older Gen 2 Tacos didn't? :notsure:

    This picture of a 2013 base model, regular cab seems to show a traction control button:

    Also note the "Display Audio" radio... seems odd they'd put that in a base model?

    Ya, 2008 came with none of that.
    It has "Smart Stop" thanks to the floor mat recall, but it wasn't factory.

    But no buttons at all. No cruise, no intermittent wipers.

    I have the same switch as you. To make it fit in one of the slots, I wrapped a zip tie around the switch and put it in. Looks like oem lol
