    Well we lost the foot race up here to get one of the last '09 4cyl 4x4 access cabs but we did still get a truck. Ended up with a one owner 2001 3.4l TRD extended cab in mint condition with a camper shell, theres no rust anywhere and it appears to be un-modded. So I guess in the end we got more truck for less money plus I think it'll be a little more like the truck I always wanted. We pick it up on monday so I'll post some pics when it arrives.

    Thanks everyone, I'm pretty impressed with it, my first Toyota and first used vehicle in quite a while, it's got 160000kms on it which is about 100000 miles so the first thing I'll be doing is checking into the timing belt, anyone know how I can tell if it's been replaced recently, I don't have a bill for one and the dealership doesn't have a record of it being changed there...
    I'm super stoked to try it out off-road just to see what it's all about.
