    My Tacoma is finally in my driveway. I've had it for 6 days now and have about 360 miles on it. It had a whopping 5 miles on it when I was handed the keys. So far I am very happy with this truck. It is much more comfortable and smooth than I anticipated and the upgrades to the interior are awesome. I love the wireless music stream to the stereo. I spent a lot of time reading a lot of posts about various topics while waiting for it to be built. One topic I paid a lot of attention to is the manual vs. auto debate. I am very happy I stuck with getting the 6-speed. As long as you don't try to speed-shift it, it goes through the gears just fine. I do agree that 1st gear is a bit too short, but my last truck had a granny 1st gear, so I'm used to it.

    I've also spent time reading up on changing oil/tranny/TC/diffs fluids since I intend to do all that myself. I can't believe how much customization you can do to these trucks. It's mind boggling. I'll get a pic posted once I get it all nice and clean.

    Another Tacoma hits the road!
