    I get calls from real estate agents who want to buy my house. I ask them if I do can I move in with them?

    That usually gets them to hang up.

    I just bought my 2021 DCLB OR Premium at MSRP, now I have a 2000 Tacoma 2WD with 94,500 miles that's going up for sale. Perfect time for me to sell it.

    4WD Nightshade in Wind Chill Pearl due in mid June

    I have a Limited Nightshade on it's way. Here's my timeline. I'm in the Gulf States Region by the way. The key is your dealer finding one on allocation that matches what you want. Might be tough since it's getting close to model year build out. Good luck to you with yours. Curious, what color did you order on the Nighthade?

    4/12/21 Met with salesman to spec. truck.
    4/13/21 Received notice that allocated truck was found.
    6/18/21 Estimated date at GST processing center.
    6/12/2021 Received permanent VIN
    6/22/2021 Found a truck like I ordered at GST with inventory search. Since it's kind of a rare build I assume that it should be mine.
    Assuming a couple days at GST, a few days in transit and for PDI, then it should be ready to pick up.

    EDIT:6/23/21 Just got a text. It's in and ready to pick up.:yes:

    Does that mean that there is a slim chance that I will be getting my 2021 Tacoma that I ordered May 14 or will they replace it with a 2022 or will I have to order a 2022 confused here.

    So, it sounds from some of the posts that dealers can call other dealers and basically ask to take their allocation. Is that correct? My dealer seems to be waiting on Toyota to give them an allocation. Does it happen both ways?

    That’s the crux of the problem. If your dealer is allocated the truck by Toyota, your dealer has the right to it. If your dealer has to call another dealer and ask to take their allocation, they have no rights at all. Given the fact that all the dealers are looking for inventory to sell, why would a dealer give up a sure sale to another dealer unless it gets something equally desirable in trade? Looking to get a truck allocated to another dealer other than the one you have decided to purchase from is wishing on a star.

    Built on 6/18 and delivered only 4 days after that!
    I'm also in Denver and my build date is 7/9. Dealer was telling me 2-3 weeks for delivery after the build date, but your timeline is giving me hope for a faster delivery date!

    Yeah, 4 days is bananas! Must have been the last one on the boat and thus first off & onto ground transportation.

    It was a very nice surprise. I was quoted 2-3 weeks as well, but it arrived much faster. Fingers crossed yours gets here sooner as well! My sales guy said they have definitely seen shipping/transport times improve over the last few weeks.

    Temporary VIN stopped working yesterday so I assume this means the truck either started to get built or finished building? Haven't heard back anything from my dealership regarding a permanent VIN. How long do folks usually wait from VIN stopping to work until delivery?

    That is what happened with mine. The temp VIN worked until the day it was built. After that, my dealer gave me a real VIN a few days later, and delivery (To the Colorado region) was 2-3 weeks after that. Obviously if your delivery region is much farther (such as the east coast) delivery times will vary, but your dealer should be able to give you an estimate.

    As mentioned earlier ordered May 14/2021 and arrived June 23/2021- 5 1/2 weeks I thought that was reasonable. I was under the impression that it was built in Mexico but when I looked at the VIN number started with a 5 which means it was built in the U.S.A probably at the Texas Plant. I really don't care where it was built as long as I got it that counts. Pick it up Tomorrow.

    There’s a lot of misinformation about vins and Tacoma production out there. I have my sr5 4x4 ordered and it is scheduled to be built July 3 in Mexico (would have preferred TX, but I’ve heard quality is good at the Mexico plants). A few people on TacomaWorld and elsewhere have suggested that temp vin numbers aren’t real and dealers are selling trucks that don’t exist, etc. All I can say is that my Tacoma is in queue per Toyota’s vin search tool on their website and it shows at my dealer when they search inventory. If you put $ down and you have a vin (temp or permanent), you’ll get your truck. Don’t listen to the nonsense like “they stopped making 2021s” or “if you got a temp vin you won’t get the truck”. Inventory is tight, but we’re talking about cars, not spacecraft.

    Toyota’s army green is a great color. Was my second choice after cement. It will be worth the wait.

    Im on week 9 and honestly just at a point of waiting for the 2022. They stopped the color code for lunar rock in my area June 4 and haven’t heard anything back from the dealer. So on to the next one.

    I see your situation is totally different so hopefully for you it’s not much longer.
