    hey whats up TW!
    ive been on here a few weeks as a guest and have educated my self a little. lifts, wheels, tire combos.

    in the next few months ill be purchasing a 05-2012 tacoma and want to make sure i dont over pay but most important i want to ensure i have all the options ill need for years to come.

    this is what i need in a truck:

    DCSB
    fully loaded
    4x4
    rear locker

    should i only be looking for a trd OR if i need these items above?

    I suggest looking at Kelly Blue Book and Edmunds for the avearage selling price in your area. Use that as your upper limit and try to purchase a vehicle less than that. There are other sites you can consult as well.

    so i just found out that the options im looking for are only avalible in the us, not canada.

    i want a dcsb in automatic trans, canada only sells them in a 6spd. and the locking rear diff is only in access cab. is this true? if so it would explain why i cant find a truck.

    i looked at a 08' from the us today. there list price is around 25k with 47,000kms this is dcsb silver. im worried about finding the truck i want now. this is the only local truck that i know of with the options im looking for. and it being an 08' theres a few things like atrack and different safety features, backup camera....
