    Hi all!! After so many years of wanting a Tacoma but, never having the $$ or need for one (lived in apartments and condos) - the time has finally come. Bye Bye Accord, you werer good to me.

    I paid $31K for an SR5 V6 4x4 with 51k miles in Magnetic Grey Metallic. Clean as can be and full service record from first owner at the same dealer. Comparative listings were much, much more expensive .. It felt shitty paying so much for that many miles but I firmly believe this is the best deal I could have got in the short term. After trade in and money down , I am only paying $250 a month! I did not have time to wait (just moved into first house, had to call truck friends every single week + gonna be a dad in a few months)

    That said i FUCKING love my truck. I feel good about the purchase. I feel like a capable homeowner now.... Since buying my truck I have been able to - buy a lawnmower and trimmer, buy patio furniture, pick up a bed full of wood, throw kayaks and chairs in the bed without needing to worry about strapping on the roof, go to the dump.

    Since theres no rock crawling or anything I am going for a grey/black stealthy and functional every day ripper. Blacked out Emblems, cheap tyger cover and the wife got me subaru/kicker tweeters and the pro grill for my birthday ^^.

    Currnetly looking at running boards since she is 7 months pregnant and struggling to get in the truck lol.
