    Option 1: (most likely the blue, otherwise the white)
    http://www.toyota.com/byt/pub/showS...37&packageName=TRD Sport Extra Value Package&[object%20MouseEvent]

    Option 2: (not necessarily the green but I like AC's better in green)
    http://www.toyota.com/byt/pub/showS...32&packageName=TRD Sport Extra Value Package&[object%20MouseEvent]&complete=true&evar12=Tacoma|undefined|5-Speed%20Automatic|4.0-Liter%20V6|4x2%20PreRunner|Access%20Cab|Timberland%20Mica|PreRunner%20%20-%20Graphite%20Fabric|B3%2CCF%2CEV%2CFE%2CPY%2CTO|


    The ultimate dilemma:
    I can buy the AC right friggin' now (if their price is good) but I would really prefer the room the DC has...I really enjoyed everything about the AC when I drove it yesterday especially the visibility when looking backwards (downfall of a DC) but I would seriously prefer the room a DC has to offer and the backseat is pretty much useless in an AC. I sit pretty far back even though I'm only like 5' 10'' and it renders the rear of an AC pretty darn useless.
    So yea...idk...I'm really torn since I really want a Taco right now but I have a feeling I'm going to regret getting an AC later on...:(
    (not to mention DC's that have been chillin around for a while are hard to find around here...much less a DC with a short bed in general)

    Yes, definitely agree with that. Already made that mistake with the Mazda.
    Biggest problem: I want both! I don't really not want either. (that didn't make sense) They both have big upsides and a couple downsides...it's liek I almost have to get both! :D
    (I forgot what I was going to say...)

    Even if it takes a bit longer, get what you REALLY want, because you're going to be stuck with something-so why not it be something you really like. :)

    I've had both and would not go back to an AC for anything. The room is there if you need it.

    I want it now is never a good reason for something this big (read: expensive). A pair of jeans or a CD or whatever...sure get it right now. A truck...Wait and get what fits your needs and what you want.

    ^Come on, that's un-American. We're the "right now" society, we're hip, we're hot...wait a minute...we're...um...poor.

    Thanks guys, I have another thread like this around here somewhere but idk where it went off to...oh well!

    I like that post about being poor. Yea, I can fit in that category!

    Might be getting a dealer to trade with a dealer, Antioch Toyota has a DC SB TRD Sport 09 prerunner (granted it has 87 miles or something like that) that seems to have been chillin around for a while. Might pull a good 'ol switcharoo on them cause the salesguy wanted me to pay no less than sticker on it and wanted to give me like 17K for the Mazda...I liked his idea for price on the Mazda, hated his idea for price on the truck. Oh well, we'll see. If it's still there next time I go then something is meant to be.

    make sure to negotiate each price seperatley.. so if he said 17k for the car then make that deal and then start negotiating the price of the truck

    Very true...thank you.
    Exactly....
    ...he made the car sound good but the truck sound awful. "We'll give you 17K for your Mazda on a trade-in and sticker on this truck is 27K so you'll still have to cover...carry the one...12.5K after TTL on the truck." (that's actually what the guy said)
