    Well I just got my 3rd toy truck. Started back in the late 80's with the old (truck) no fancy name, and I was hooked. Sold that one and bought a 2000 taco and loved it. Had one little slip up in between when I bought a Mazda yikes! but learned my lesson. So here I am again with my first new one. Whats not to love? Had a heck of a time trying to decide what one to buy. Allmost to many options out there now. Liked the TRD off road but wasnt crazy about the stiffer ride. Liked the Sport but wasnt crazy about the hood scoop. So I went back to what I had with the 2000, an SR5. Can't believe what a difference 8 years makes in this truck. Love the added room and the ride is sweet. 4 door crew is really handy for passengers and the truck just seems so much more solid in it's feel. Seats are a bit dissapointing, I think there made for midgets, oops thats not politically correct, (small people) but I think I will get used to them with time. All in all very very happy with my new baby. Still breaking her in if there really is a break in period any more. Looking to add a hood gaurd if it's reasonably priced and who knows maybe some other cool stuff down the line. Just happy to be here! Oh and by the way as I am sure you all ready know, great time to buy. They are wheeling and dealing right now with all kinds of incentives. See ya!
