    First off thank you to all of you for answering my questions.

    I picked up an 08 Pre-Runner DC TRD sport package in silver. The car came equipped with the JBL system and 6 disc changer.

    What a great car and I realized this as I took my first fast turn around a corner and felt the rear wheels and the LSD doing its work as it did not lose any traction.

    Not as powerful as I want it to be, but it doesn't eat as much gas either which is good.

    Whatever you guys do, don't get me started on modding this car!!!! haha

    I'll post pics after I tint the windows!

    Welcome to TW, glad you like the truck, remember trucks are about power through torque, you will notice this with time as you start hauling and or towing, nothing but grins from here on out. :D

    There's a reason for that: They get stuck with a used vehicle that they can't sell under these current market conditions so "make their money and go" isn't the whole truth. Car companies are losing all kinds of money with their leasing programs.
