    Can someone help me find any of the following VIN's? Toyota's site only says "available". I'd rather drive to the dealer that has it "in stock" than pay for shipping. :p My search efforts have failed so far.

    3TMJU62N99M081563 Silver
    3TMJU62N49M091322 Silver
    3TMJU62N29M089360 Silver
    3TMJU62N89M089198 Silver
    3TMJU62N49M088937 Silver
    3TMJU62NX9M091499 Pyrite
    3TMJU62N29M091433 Timberland Mica


    Thanks

    Call Toyota USA and give them the VIN number. They will be able to tell you which dealer has the truck

    I understand the OP's frustration. When I was shopping for a truck, I found out that going to a dealer's site and looking at "their" trucks actually meant I was looking at inventory for a whole bunch of dealerships in a big area.

    It makes it kind of hard to show up and test drive the damned thing.

    That is exactly my problem. Where the hell are any of these trucks which match my preferences? Apparently a dealer somewhere has them, unless of course I already bought them for someone else with my tax dollars. Damn klunkers. :mad: It is a trick to get you into the dealer so they can "help" you find it and have it shipped (for their profit of course).

    BTW, he said the 2010's are in transit, adding they will be on the lot mid August. I am curious about unadvertized "hidden improvements", but there won't be a rebate. $1500 for a new cupholder is pretty steep.
