    Hey guys (and gals),
    This is a great forum. I just got my third truck in 22 years (my last one lasted 17 1/2 years; it is a '91 Extra Cab that I bought in Fall of '90) I still have it after 249K miles but am going to sell it. It still runs great but needs some rebuilding to make the suspension right again as well as some clutch work. New tires and wheels would be good, and maybe a paint job, but I decided to go new).
    SOOO, for my 45th birthday, my better half let me get a new White '08 Double Cab Tacoma, TRD Sport package, V6, 4wd. Can't believe how much power it has compared to my old 22RE.
    I bought it on 4/11 and on 4/12 I was already taking it a part to add the AUX radio adapter so I can get a satellite radio hooked up quickly. (have xm in my corolla and '91 truck and sirius in our Sienna). Can't live without it. Later this week I will pull the headliner and run the attenna for my new Sirius Sportser 5 out the third break light.
    There are a lot of jealous dudes where I work. ;)
    Anyway, thanks for the great Forum and all of the great posts. Look forward to 17+ years of my new truck.
    Take care for tonight!!!

    Welcome to Tw Bill
    I know what your saying about the power
    it's a big jump from the old 22r as I made the leap
    myself just a few months ago.
    Watch how fast you put the first 5000 miles on it :D
