    Hey to all you Tacoma owners! My wife and I just bought an '09 SR5 4x4 - pyrite mica. It's her daily driver and her first truck. She's lovin' it to say the least. I get to drive it on long trips cuz she hates driving on the freeway for long distances. I had an '00 Tacoma several years ago and traded it, but I always liked the truck. I currently drive an '06 Wrangler Unlimited with a 2" spring lift and 1.25" BL with 32s - but the truck is a treat to drive when i get the chance!

    Welcome to TW. But since it is technically your wife's truck, we are going to need pictures of her.

    Good choice on the color!

    Wow! Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I think I like it here already! I'll try to get some pics up soon.

    Well, it's titled to me, so it's technically MY truck. But don't tell my wife that.

    She saw that color on another car on the lot and wanted it for her truck. The dealer said that color was rare in Ohio, but he'd try to find one. A half hour later he calls us and said we should go play the lottery. Another dealership dropped off a pyrite mica tacoma with everything we wanted to trade for something they needed!

    took delivery of the pyrite mica beauty on July 3, 2009. same kind of thing happened when the wife and i went shoping for a new tacoma.
    she was locked into a green one (timberline mica) then she saw the pyrite mica and did a complete flip-flop. so we popped for the trd sport double cab 4x4 v6 automatic. haven't modified it much so far... will be picking up an MX ARE shell for it next week. like you Gus54 this will be my wife's daily driver. and she also doesn't like to drive the long drives. so i will get some of the 'feels so good' driving time too.
