    I went by the dealership and they had a few TRD sport DCSB on the lot... So I took this one out, and man, I loved it. Its such a change from my lowered wrx, and that's not a bad thing.

    They offered it to me for $29,995.... There is a pic of the window sticker too... is this a good price for it?

    Meh, I dont really like the looks of the OR... I dont like the non scoop'd hood, or the chrome grill/bumper... I wont be doing a lot of "off roading" with it. The most we have to do around here are dirt roads/etc (boring as hell)....

    I am buying this for my business (PDR)... I need something new to advertise with and something that had a truck bed

    I got offered $29,500 at a dealership that about 3 hours away..... I think it would cost me close to the $500 difference to get there and back, plus the headache of it

    you ever tried to drive a rear wheel drive truck in Southern Missouri ice storms?

    I always offer no more than $500 over invoice, which is a fair deal (never paid more than that, a couple of times much less). From looking at the sticker, it sounds like you are close.

    Thanks guys.

    and while I was out driving, I was looking/listening for all of the stuff I heard for the 12's having... and the only rattle I heard, sounded like it was coming from the interior in the back seat/drivers side... other than that, solid ride.

    I am used to the heavy gas pedal of my wrx. I baby the hell out of it, but the power is there when you want it (stage II mods, subtle/solid power band)

    I was cautious to get into the gas while on the test drive until I came to a big hill, I was worried a minute before I found out I wasnt pushing the pedal pretty much, at all. haa

    Just checked Kelley Blue Book, and that price appears to be very close to invoice. They are doing $500 cash back right now on Tacomas, so don't forget to take that into account! I say go for it.

    Good price, depending on where you live, if there is more competition I would haggle another $1k lower, if not I would be happy at that price. Also what the guy up there said, I would never drive a 2 wheel drive vehicle regardless of where I live. Excellent color also :)

    Do it. The world is better with Tacoma's on the road, especially Super White DCSB TRD Sport 4x4s.

    If I could do one thing again though, I'd pass on the Sport Plus. I'm already ready to change the wheels. Looking at the American Racing Mojave's in 16x8 and some 265s.

    Hey, I live in MO and do just fine in the snow and ice in my 2WD Tacoma and wife's 4Runner. But I grew up driving RWD cars in Dallas where all we got was ice (I much prefer snow). That said, my next Tacoma will be a TRD OR.

    No Entune system in it? I still think its a good deal. Dealerships here are taking $3K off of the MSRP. That's pretty close to it there.
