    Just got a message from the saleslady that I ordered my Tacoma from. She says Toyota just notified her and my truck has a scheduled build date of 1/25. What does that mean? They start building on this date? They finish building on this date? Do they build the truck in one day? She says I should get it in February. Can't wait!!

    Congrats! I got lucky and the dealer I went to had 2 trucks they could transfer in to my exact specs. One was an auto, one was my 6spd so I could pick whichever one I wanted! No waiting except for the paper work to clear, and get back up there at the end of the week after work to take delivery. Those guys were cool (Burdick in Syracuse). Sales manager and salesman stayed late so I could pick it up after work (work until 5, but left at 4 so they wouldn't have to stay too late) since it was an hour drive for me, and they don't do deliveries on the weekend.

    Congrats man... I personally could not wait... I thought I could when they were estimating a month. But then a week later, they pushed it to 2 months possibly 3. At that point I started shopping around. I have 5 toyota dealers within 30 miles. Found one that could get it in a few days and cancelled the order with my local dealer.

    Most of the stuff they can add on, but getting a black TRD sport double cab with a 6 speed is pretty rare. You can get them in other colors, but the total combination was rare at the time of ordering.

    May be this will give you a time-frame.

    I ordered my Tacoma mid Oct. To be delivered mid December. Still waiting. It was at the train yard two weeks ago in Denver. One day by truck to my dealer's location. Still no Tacoma. Called the dealer today. Have not heard back.

    I, too, am excited . . . and still waiting. Perhaps your will come quicker. The holidays may have interfered with mine.

    Hey gdawg25, I'll be watchin' for ya around town. I've got a black one too, now with the side marker blinking opposite to turn signal mod.

    You know if TacomaWorld had a black background sticker like the webpage header, I'd be willing to put this one sticker on my truck... Anyone know? Could always make one up... any takers?

    VSC is not available on my truck. I don't know if it's because the LSD or the 6speed. Either way I couldn't get it.
