    I have come BACK to the dark side and am definitely buying a Tacoma. I am not sure what the hell I was thinking when I was considering a Ridgeline. Anyhow now the only thing is finding a 4wd DC 05' and newer in my price range which I have three months so I should be able to do it. The local dealer is going to try and find one at the auction for what I want to spend WITH a warranty so we will see but any of you guys close to NC keep your eyes out for one between 17-19 will 60k miles or less (I know it may not even be feasible and my price range may be to low but we will see what happens :pray:)

    Thanks! :D

    Whats your zip code?

    Theres a ton of stuff with nearly 60K on it for sale.

    I found a Speedway Blue DC 4x4 TRD O/R with 28K for $20K on Autotrader a few days ago. Plenty of good deals out there.

    Congrats on making your mind up and buying the best truck on the market.

    The Honda Ridgeline is probably a better buy if you like the truck style with SUV riding. But I think most Honda vehicles are ugly...the exception is the Accord mid-sized sudan and the accord coupe.

    On Autotrader you can set up an advanced search to include Transmission, 4x4, door #s, Color, ect. You can also set it up to send you an email when a vehicle comes available that meets your criteria. I'd do that if I where you.

    Good thing. Otherwise, we'd have to ask the admins to change your username to IrishGayPride42. ;)
