    Just intro'ing myself...
    Supposedly tomorrow I'll be the new owner of an '11 Super White Dbl-cab, long-bed, TRD Sport, otherwise loaded. Mods are heated leather, s/s running boards, roof-rack, soft-tonneau, grille and window guards.
    I've been shopping for only ~1.5 mths now and am going completely Tacoma crazy. I mean these trucks follow me on the highway, I see them everywhere, even though they're not that common. I'm magnetized to them.
    Is it wrong that I fall asleep next to my wife, and lay thinking about driving around in my new truck out in the wilderness, camping, towing my boat?!?

    I've asked my dealer to send me hour-by-hour status updates as to where the shipping truck is. Supposedly it's somewhere between Commerce, GA and here Raleigh, NC. Should arrive tomorrow.

    Going stir crazy. Glad to have found this site. Will spend plenty of time here.
    Thanks for listening. Cheers folks.

    LOL I've been an owner for over 6 years now and I still experience everything you just said but my wife loves my Tacoma just as much as I do :) It pulls my boat just fine as well.

    Welcome.

    Now leave this site, and never return, lest you start lying awake thinking of all the ways you can modify your truck so that it's even better for going out in the wilderness, camping, and towing your boat.

    You have been warned. :D

    Thank you all. Picked her up this evening. OMG that thing is just a sweet, mean, bad-a$$ ride. Tomorrow I'm going to put my sleeping pads in the bed and sleep in it. I'm in love...how did I make it this far in life w/o a Tacoma??

    Q: did anyone buy the toyota after market warranty? Seems like a pretty good deal to me but looking for experience on it before going back and buying.
