    I ended up trading in my 2006 Rad Red TRD Sport DCSB 4x4, had a few offers:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...78339-fs-2006-rad-red-trd-sport-dcsb-4x4.html

    but nothing serious, so it went to the dealer. Picked up same thing just 6 years newer today and said goodbye red, hello white:

    Arrives home:

    Thanks to www.shopTRD.com, who I found out about here, sitting in the garage waiting to be installed: TRD exhaust, Tacoma rubber bed mat, skid plate, Tacoma roof rack. Soon after that heated leather, (still not sure if Katzkin or CST yet), tonneau cover, BFG TA KO's

    My old truck did not have JBL so when I went to put my jumper cables/bed net/blankets, etc. behind the passenger rear seat, was suprised to find the speaker takes up half the space.

    I'm waiting on my all weather floor mats, truck had carpet mats so I'm waiting for those to come in on order. Otherwise, truck rides great and happy after 12 miles!

    Ordered a hood protector from the dealer. They said it came in but was the wrong one. I'm thinking since the hood changed shape, they have not made one to fit '12 yet, anybody know?

    I will start a build thread...

    Congrats on the new truck! Looks like you got a few new bits to keep you busy! I hope they changed the design of the bug shield. The previous years oem one had a problem with the clips damaging the paint on the front edge of the hood.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    I hope you left a pic of your avatar hidden somewhere in the truck for the next owner!

    Nice new truck!

    Looks nice! I think the Super White is a great color for the 2012 specifically - it's the only one that looks good with the gray plastic front valence IMO
