    I traded in my 2005 chevy 2500HD with 8 foot fisher plow for a new 07 Double cab 4x4 short bed v6 TRD Off Road Tacoma in Silver. What a difference in gas mileage (going to save myself about $100 per month in gas alone)

    Dealer was "ok" on the trade in. I also got a free bed extender in the deal.
    I deffinately did not feel like I was getting screwed at all.

    Been driving it for two days now and cant seem to get the smile off my face when behind the wheel.

    Cant wait to try this out in the snow.

    I get about 20 or 21 mpg with my 07 4.0L which is better than I got with a smaller engine in my 03 Double Cab with the 3.4L.

    On a good day I was getting about 12.9 or so with the chevy
    about 8 while plowing. Most ever was a tad over 14 with all highway miles.

    I hope to get close to 20 with the new truck.
