    Hello, new tacoma owner here. I recently went from an 04 F-150 FX4 supercrew to a 2008 trd off road 4x4 access cab tacoma. I absolutely loved my ford and wasn't sure how I was going to like the tacoma, but I am extremely happy to say that I have been damn impressed with it. It rides better than the ford did, gets better gas mileage, it feels faster, and the seats are more comfortable. I couldn't be happier with my decision on this truck. I live in the Florida panhandle and there is a lot of soft beach sand around here and i was out by the beach the other day where they were having a wedding, and the caterer showed up in a new model 2WD tacoma and i watched him bury himself in the sand so I left my buddy's house and offered the guy a hand wich he gladly accepted, i put my truck into 4LO for the first time, locked the rear end and hooked up the strap and pulled him right out, making $20 in the process. I was impressed with the tacoma it did it just as easily as my ford did. Just thought I would introduce myself and share my little story with you guys. :thumbsup:
