    nothing....yet
    i sat here thinking about the thing i like most about my truck. after a while i decided that it wasn't the 4 wheel drive or 3.4L or anything like that. i've decided my favorite thing is the tape deck that came with it.

    by far...the bed. I went from a very dependable Montero Sport to my Tacoma, so I did not gain much of anything else, but I love having the bed instead of the closed in back.

    no spilled gas worries, battery acid damage (happened in the back of my Monte), can throw muddy shoes from mtn biking in bed, etc.

    Reliability is what I now love about my truck. I just drove from Cincinnati to savannah, Georgia with no hiccups at all! Mind you I have a 97 and I broke 160k on the trip!!

    Gotta say I love the bed too! I had a mattress in the back and the topper on so it was basically a camper for the weekend!! Worked great!

    The size, I don't have room for a full size truck and my old Ranger was too small. The Tacoma is perfect. That and the double cab makes it really useful.

    I love how the Tacoma is a straight forwardly engineered without compromise perfect piece of machinery. I have pulled wrench for over 10 years for a living and constantly see "other brands" and say why the fuck did they build it like that, its like 20/20 hindsight with the "other brands". But tToyaota just keeps it simple and Reliable and they dont mess with things every few years just because.... With Toyota when something works they keep it.... the PS resovoir on my 2010 is the same style and design as 79 hilux.... I could keep raving, but I must go to work :D

    I would have to say its the bed! Nice to haul the dogs in the back! But the size and look of the truck are also a plus.
