    Hello, everybody. I am the proud new owner of a 2010 Super White regular cab 2.7L 5 speed. Just a bare-bones little guy. But, that's what I wanted. I just got out of a bad relationship with my '04 F250 SD. It broke my heart and my wallet. This is my 2nd Taco, the first being a '96 regular cab 2.4L. It had 200k miles on it and ran better than when I bought it, when I hydroplaned and flipped for about a quarter of a mile. Came out literally without a scratch on me. But my poor little truck was toast. That was back in '05. Since then I tried Chevys and Fords. They suck. I learned my lesson, Toyota will be the only truck I will ever own, again. BTW, it's nice to read an owner's forum that doesn't have page after page about having to rip your engine apart and bypass everything just to keep it running for a few weeks. I try to buy USA, but USA needs to make something good for a change.

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I think we taco owners get used to basically not doing anything to our trucks. I have to admit I've thought about getting one of those new F-150's. But I don't want to tempt fate since my old taco just goes and goes.

    Thanks for the welcomes. I appreciate it. Looks like a great site. I have already been checking out the mod threads. Thanks to all who have contributed. I plan to do the D-ring mod as soon as I get the rings, luckily already have the torx bit and everything else. Just got my truck box rigged in last night. Again, thanks everybody!
