    Hello TW,

    Recently sold my 1st gen ext cab 2.7L 4x4 manual with 79kmiles for a more suitable family version (hadababyitzaboy). I found a 2009 TRD Sport 4x4 DCSB in Maryland at the Toyota stealership with 43,000 miles for $22500 ($24500 out the door) that has been completely cared for frame coated all services documented etc. and came with a bed cover and brand new 265 Good year Kevlar All Terrains. I am very excited about it to say the least. I do feel I paid pretty much top kbb dollar for it but what do you expect I found it at a Toyota Dealership and I have not seen another one this clean with low miles for sale.

    If you are interested in upgrading from 1st Gen to 2 Gen these are the first things I noticed:
    *POWER WINDOWS!!!!!! Man I miss these
    *Factor bilsteins ride very smooth
    *OEM stereo sucks
    *Rearview mirror visibility sucks
    *Gas mileage is about the same as the 4 cyl 4x4 manual (however now I have to drive light and easy as opposed to pedal to the metal)
    *Tons of low end torque
    *Still getting used to Traction control always on until turned off at slow speed or stop (used to lay rubber in the 4 banger all the time but I am getting older time drive like a dad now I guess.)
    * Slush box is actually a nice change up from the 5 speed. Traffic is not as annoying but it does do a high rev then shifts hard into 2nd at low speeds think I just need a TSB upload?
    * Shorter box than the ext cab but There is ways around that (ie bed extender and or trailor hitch bed extender) If I wanted to drive a truck with the WB of a excursion I would have got an excursion or a full size truck to tow the big toys (sorry long bed owners)

    Would I do it all over again? You bet

    Thank you! Yes I have actually watched a few of your videos. I will definitely make it out to the next meet up whenever that is.

    Wow Yeah you really are my neighbor im right off Beauregaurd and Seminary. As for the truck eventually go 285 tires black rims I am liking the BFDs wheels but not sure yet. 3 inch lift maybe with 5100s bilsteins a bunch of in the cab work like new stereo speakers etc. I definitely will try to link up on the next NOVA meet up although the TRD will be mostly stock still.

    If you are interested...I have some 285s that I am looking to sell in a few weeks when I go up to 35s with the TRD fakelock wheels in grey. There are many places around in a 2-3 hour drive that are stock friendly...Petersmill, bald mountain, flagpole, and some others. Most of these are by the George Washington National Forest area.
