    Soooo....I sadly wrapped my new baby around a tree this past weekend in the NE snowstorm. Needless to say I'm really pissed at myself.

    I'm out now looking at a new one, and here are the specs:
    '07 DC SB TRD OR with A/T
    SR5 Package
    Locking rear diff
    Tow package
    Aftermarket front fogs
    Tonneau cover
    14.000 miles
    Clean carfax

    They want $24000 for it. I had the same thing in the 6 spd (the one now totaled) and figured I wouldnt like the auto; I actually don't mind it

    However, I was under the impression the OR models came with HAC and DAC as buttons on the dash. However, the sales guy after some feseach told me that it's all included with the truck. Something seems fishy to me...

    Anyone out there have an 07 with the buttons, or can anyone shed some light on this?? I don't want to make a $24k mistake...

    Thanks dude. Being stupid in the snow and I decided tO dance with the tree; I lost big time.

    So how do I know then if the options were on the truck? Would the buttons be there, or would it be listed on the printout from the dealer? I peered into the window of a 2011 and I saw the buttons so that's why I assumed I was being lied to.

    Other, and more important question is whether I'll really need/use it. I'd like to do some ORing with it, but it's a $25k truck...I don't plan on doing any rock crawling. It is/would be currently my DD.

    $25k for a three-plus year old truck that probably didn't sell for much more than that new?

    I guess it depends on which service you use, bit even NADA says clean retail to be over $26000. Brand new it was listed for $29500. It also has the tonneau cover, which aren't cheap.
