    Hi All,

    Don't own a Tacoma yet but I am going to sell our FJ Cruiser and pick up a TRD Double-Cab Taco, The FJ is great but doesn't have enough room for us.

    Looking forward to learning a lot from this forum.
    Last Toyota PU owned was a 89 SR5 X-Cab 4x4 with the 22R-E

    Thanks.
    Yeah the FJ has been a fun truck. Took it to Moab and down to Baja a couple times.

    It looks like the new Tacoma double-cabs only come with Automatic tranny? :confused:
    Was hoping for a manual tranny like the FJ.

    You might have to do some looking around but the Double Cab 4x4 does come in a manual tranny (you just don't get the long bed only the short bed). Toyota doesn't make that many of them but they do. When I got mine in '05 it was the only one within 500 mile of where I bought it.

    Keep looking and don't let the dealer tell you they don't make 'em.
