    I saw this over on XRU thought I would share with you guys. It looks like these are the changes for the canadian market so the US market should have the same changes, I would guess so anyways. not sure if this is the right section or not so feel free to move it.

    That would be interesting to see where exactly the speakers would be mounted. I'm sure it will help acoustics.

    probably tired of hearing people complain about fading:D actually looks like it will be replaced with a metallic red there will probably be a really similar option

    Wow, they are getting rid of Indigo Ink. I bet that Magnetic Grey looks hot though. (I would have gone with a dark gray in the absence of my Indigo Ink)

    The rear seat console is a nice addition. I am willing to bet we will be able to swap in some things from the new model year in to our trucks.

    Why is it that they never have a green color car when I buy but the year before or after they do?!
    I hate led tail lights. I hope they make them with class. I never did like the pink tint in the tails and was looking for a way of making it clear.

    Aux Input? Who's butt has Toyota's head been up? I was actually hoping that they would throw in a combo CD/Tape/8 track player. MP3's are played out.

    mp3's/portable media devices are the way to go!

    All the new colors are Metallic or Mica because marketing research has proven that rednecks like glittery things. :p

    Well, I am glad the only two things that I might want to put on my 08' Tacoma are the LED Taillights and the "new" grill. Other than that - I have already made my truck into what I want (minus the BHLM work that I will be doing this weekend).

    :D

    I hooked up the crank to the flywheel, but I think it zapped a few HP.
