    While they're as rare as hen's teeth I did get a new 6-speed TRD, in the color I wanted (spruce mica) from Beaver Toyota in Santa Fe. The bluetooth is exceptional. I've owned 5 Toyota pick-ups in the last 30 years, including the 4cyl 2009 I traded for this one, and this is, by far the best. Here's some picks when it was 2 days old:

    I originally had my eye on that very same truck. But, really started to like the SWB and DC, do that's what I went with.

    Still, nice looking truck!

    I am expecting mine in about a week. Should look like yours. In a matter of fact, your photo and post made me decide on the Spruce Mica vs Blue. Your comments on it "being the best ever" I appreciated too!
