    Just bought my first Tacoma it's a 07 Silver Double Cab X-Sp. Had to get rid of my Gas drinkin 4x4 F250 went from 13 mpg to around 21. I'm loving it. Will get some pics up as soon as I can. Glad to see all these SC members, I'm from Spartanburg by the way.

    Welcome to TacomaWorld! I've got the X-SP also. I think it's one of the nicest looking trucks out there. How do you like the way it handles? Mine feels like I've got to keep both hands on the wheel cause if ya hit a pothole the Tacoma wants to turn! Dealership told me thats because of the 20 inch wheels.

    Yeah, I know what you mean at times its all over the place. I have seen where you posted something bout this before i bought mine, so it made it stand out when I test drove it. I wonder if its more the factory tires or it it's just the way the truck drives with the wheels.

    I'm glad to hear it's not just me or my Tacoma. i guess the looks of the wheels over-ride the sub par handling! But hey, your Tacoma looks great and I know you'll be very happy as I am too!
