    I just bought a 2008 Toyota Tacoma double cab, used with 11,000 miles on it, it's Silver and got the off road package. Traded in my 2002 Quad Cab Dakota 4.7. Dodge is going down so, always wanted a Tacoma and this deal came up so I jump on it and dumped my Dakota with 98,000 miles on it.
    I love using these forums, used one for my Dakota alot!!

    Welcome!!

    I hope the Taco can impress and satisfy you for as long (or longer) than the Dakota has.

    Although, that 4.7L V8 was probably fun.

    Welcome to TW! I had a 2004 quad cab 4x4 Dakota for a while. I did a happy dance when I sold it. :)

    I had a Dakota extra cab 4x4 when the body style changed to match the full size Ram. I like my Taco much better.

    Welcome from one who's had 4 Dakotas (98 CC V6, 01 CC V8 4x4, 06 QC V8, 00 CC V8 4x4)

    Tacoma's different - can say which I like better, since have yet to even buy permanent plates for my Taco yet! :)
