    Don't have one yet
    Hello all,
    I've had sports cars all my life... I sold my BMW M5 last may and haven't purchased another vehicle since. I primarily use my Honda CBR600RR for transport.

    I have recently got into camping and borrowing my dad's minivan for such trips isn't cutting it.

    I am certain I want a Tacoma with the V6, 4x4, double cab, and the TRD Off Road package. I won't be doing any hardcore wheeling but I like the idea of having a rear locker in the event I feel like getting myself into hairy situations.

    I would like to wait to see the changes for the 2012 model. It would be great if Toyota implements the FJ's V6 for the next model. Is there a section here on the forums dedicating to speculation of a new 2012 model?

    Happy Father's Day to all the big daddys out there.

    -Ahproh

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Do yourself a favor and buy the SUPERCHARGED truck; spend more money initially. Do it once and do it right. You will be very happy...the first time.

    Why does he need to buy a supercharger? they're fun, yes, but our trucks put out more then enough power stock. If you wanna go fast, buy a car.
