    I finally pulled the trigger and bought a Tacoma yesterday. It's a 2009 TRD Sport Double Cab 2WD. It's magnetic gray. I'd post a pic but I'm sure everyone knows what it looks like (plus I'm not sure how!).

    It feels good to be out of my Malibu and into a proper vehicle again!

    Good choice on the color IMO. Don't forget to brake it in nice. It's worth it.

    You can also upload the picture to your gallery. Then once it's up, you can reuse the same pic without having to upload it again. If you click on the "Tacoma Photos" at the top and select "Upload Photos" it'll take you to a page to upload a bunch of files at once. Click the browse button to find the picture on your computer, enter a title and then click Upload/Submit button (if you uploaded more than one, it'll take you to another page to edit the titles and descriptions for each individual picture. Then when you want to use them, you go into your gallery, select the picture you want, and then cut the code in the text box below the picture into the editor and paste it into your post editor.
