    Exactly the same as the last one but it has the predator tube steps (I like them better), slightly different instrument panel, lower price and better interest rate. I had to fight and fight for the lower price but they surprised me with the lower interest rate. I was expecting them to bump it up because the insurance company STILL hasn't paid off my last truck yet.

    Will be removing a few emblems on the tailgate, blacking out the rest and putting a black Longhorn logo on the back sometime this weekend. The black XD Hoss wheels should also go on this weekend but the lift and new tires will have to wait to see what happens with the settlement.

    I love everything about my truck, but if I could trade you anything, it would be that color. Man, that grey looks so damn good.

    Still pretty sore, it's been almost 3 weeks but I still get muscle soreness in my lower back along with intermittent sharp pains. It's weird, I'll do some motion 9 times and it'll feel fine and then the 10th time I get a sharp pain that kinda jolts me. I also get headaches in the very back of my head, most of the time they're not bad but they come pretty often. But all in all, considering the wreck, I think I'm doing ok. It could always be worse.

    I looked at it. I wanted one but I couldn't find a good deal. Every TRD OR JBL/4x4 had a $33xxx MSRP or more so the cheapest I felt I could get would have been 29-30 which was more than I wanted to pay and the wife was against 4x4 from the start so I gave up. This truck will suit my needs just fine though.

    What color do you have? I went back and forth between the white and grey. I really like the look of the white trucks with blacked out emblems and black wheels. But if they still made the indigo ink trucks I would have gotten that hands down, I love that color.

    Great looking truck man! I love that color too. When I bought my '11 I wanted to do the grey but my Accord that I traded in was the same color and I wanted something new, so I went with black....now my truck looks dirty all the time haha!!!

    Great truck. Post some pics as soon as you get those wheels on. I've been thinking about upgrading, but I'm not sure what style I'm going for yet and want to see some more magnetic grey sweetness with after market rims.:D

    Read the red inserted text in quote first.

    Wise decision young man...never forget the married man's Golden Rule: "IF MOMMA AIN'T HAPPY...AIN'T NOBODY HAPPY!"

    Congrats on the New Tacoma...very nice truck! Take care of you and yours!

    My final choices for mine was the Magnetic Gray (like yours), Super White and Black Pearl. Black is very sharp but very hard to clean. My wife has a Corolla S in MGM, so I went with Super White - the Metallic Gray looks sharp.
