    Hi, all:

    Totally glad I found this forum and already have learned a lot, so thanks from the beginning for so much collective wisdom.

    Put in a Bedrug (love it already, great invention) and want to get some better wheels and install the short shift mod, but this is a good truck right out of the gate.

    Likes: the 2.7-liter is torquey enough
    pretty good visibility
    brakes are decent
    love the "short/sport" look
    nice dash layout
    feels well made

    Dislikes: Power windows/locks/mirrors would be nice
    bench seat is mucho cheapo, could use adjustable seatback
    would have liked intermittent wipers

    Nice truck!

    You mentioned wanting a few more options....I know that you can't get the power items on a regular cab, but I thought you could get bucket seats and intermittent wipers. Has that changed now?

    If I could have bought a regular cab with the v6 I probably would have.

    Thanks for the welcome, everybody -

    As for the reg cab/4-cylinder options, I don't think you can get buckets anymore, but I didn't check, I actually wanted the bench, belts for 3 at least.

    Intermittent wipes might be part of a package, but again, I don't think. I'd already seen some threads dealing with retrofitting with the Toyota intermittent wiper switch assembly, so I'll get to that sooner or later, same with cruise control, a blessing on long trips.

    And anybody who can make a recommendation on trailer hitches, it looks like Draw-tite or Hidden Hitch look about equal and always well-rated, though I can't decide whether to go Class II or III/IV, even though I know the tow rating's only 3,500 lbs., so Class II would handle it.

    Welcome from NJ.

    Nice looking truck. Love the regular cabs. Got mine new in July after having a '99 extended cab since new. First order of business should be getting some beefier tires. Put a set of 265/75r16 Hankook Dynapro ATM's on mine about a month ago. Looks and handles so much better. If you get the P rated tires, you won't lose a lot of gas mileage as they are only 6 lbs a piece heavier than the stock Dunlops (but they're bigger and more aggressive).

    With regards to the hitch, I would go for the Class III. From what I've seen it's only a few dollars more for some extra piece of mind.
