    I know I might be a little late on this but I've just now noticed the new concept and how they redesigned the headlights and grill? Does anyone else not like it as much? IMO looks cheap:eek:

    That you just now realized this I guess. It's been widely discussed on here. I don't care for it personally, so I'm kinda glad I got my 2011 all though I do like the new stereo and dash.

    Yeah it's not even a concept anymore. There are quite a few members here that already own a 2012. I personally love the new front end.

    That's kinda ironic because I immediately fell in love with the 2nd gens when they came out. I'm not saying I wouldn't own the 2012, just not crazy about the grill and headlights.

    I wanted your wheels. I was going in to do a down payment on a truck with our layout, but without Entune and without the downgraded "upgrade" wheels. They sold me the truck at invoice, which is about where I wanted to be on price with the other truck anyways so I went with it. 4 miles on the odometer when I test drove and purchased it. Love this set up!

    They should start a 2012 thread and maybe merge it with any and all speculative threads. they could call it the 2012 Mega thread or something like that. What do you think?

    All Tacos have "cheap" front ends... it's all plastic or thin metal that I could kick dents in. That is one reason I bought a bumper(s) made of steel (ARB and Relentless). It's a modern truck what do you expect?
