    New to the forum here… I’ve been lurking for sometime while trying to decide what to buy. I took the plunge yesterday and drove home a new Double Cab with the Off Road package. This is my first Toyota in about 16 years and after years of Land Rover ownership I look forward to worry/trouble free motoring.:) Photos from last night.

    Hey…

    Just your average Ex(Very Ex) Defensive Lineman. Stand about 6’2” or 3” if I stand up straight and tipping the scales at about 310lbs or so. I think the camera must add a few inches… or is that pounds?:D

    As for the shirt… In the middle of our wheeling and dealing on the new truck, my wife glances over at me with a horrific look on her face. I think “oh great… she has caught something the stealership is trying to screw me on.” I ask the salesman to give us a minute alone to cuss and discuss. She says she can’t believe I wore that old sweat and 90wt oil stained shirt out in public, much less to a place we were going to be applying for a loan. I mumbled something about it being my lucky shirt and we went on with our negotiations.

    Thanks for the welcome. I’m afraid I won’t be much help on Tacoma stuff for a while but if anyone has any Rover questions, I’ll help with what I can.

    Thanks for all the welcomes…

    Can’t wait to get back home and go for a drive. I bought the Tacoma Saturday night 7/25 and left out for work early morning of 7/26. I drive a truck so my brand new toy has been sitting on our lot waiting for me to get home. Three days off and I should have a good start on breaking it in.

    Here's a better picture. I've ordered my first add-on - WeatherTech liners.

    Let the fun begin....
