    Hi, from south Texas...been lurking here for awhile now.
    Actually, I'm from Louisiana but working in south Texas in the Eagle Ford Shale oil fields here. I've got a new 2011 double cab, V6 4WD TRD Sport waiting to be picked up this weekend. I love the looks of Taco and the truck will be mostly used for work-related travel. Almost all the trucks on the job out here are either Ford, Chevy or Dodge. Most are 3/4 or 1-tons 4WD with diesels. I wanted something different and never owned a Toyota before. Since I'm a paper pusher rather than a weldor, I don't have a lot of load to haul around such as a welding rig so hopefully the Taco is up to the job. The question is: can the booger run with those big dogs with respect to reliability, endurance, and agility? I guess the proof will be in the pudding so to speak....we shall see!!! :D
