    Hello all. My name is James and I just bought my first Taco which I get to pick up from the dealer tomorrow. :D I'm going for a black & chrome theme and I'm very interested in modding my truck. I have done multiple car stereo set ups in the past and I'm good with my hands. I've been reading over the forum for the past couple of days and there are some nice trucks on this site.

    Nice truck! I'm from north jersey too, did you buy from Crestmont Toyota? I'm trying to make out the plate. If so, how did they treat you? I'm going to buy mine next month. Thanks and good luck with it!

    I bought it from Hudson Toyota because my girlfriend's father works for their dealership network so I only paid $200 over cost :D They swapped it from Crestmont toyota on 23 so that's what it says on the plate.

    '11 Taco 4x4 SR5 - Black
    I live in Lyndhurst so it was a quick drive over there... My sales rep went on vacation and nobody picked up my case so I was lost for a few days but once that was sorted out the customer service was quick and easy. Can't complain with the deal I got. My father bought a Camry from East Coast on 17S and hated the people there. He felt like everyone was trying to BS him and was lying to him. I got that vibe too I test drove a used Taco there and they had to jump it to start it. I said I wanted a new battery in there if I bought it but the guy told me "oh no the battery is fine we turn them off when they're on the lot so it doesn't die and you have to jump it to get it going again." Last time I checked there is no on/off switch on a car battery...
