    Hey everyone, I am a new owner of an 09 Tacoma Double Cab TRD Off Road in Pyrite Mica. I have never owned a Toyota before and am hoping everything works out. I had a car with two doors and just had my first child, so the four doors was needed but the truck was nice to haul my motorcycle or pull a trailer. I looked around at all the other small crew cab trucks out there and no one had anything as nice as the tacoma. I have owned a few different brands over the years but always keep an open mind when it comes to looking at new vehicles and giving them all an equal chance. I just couldn't find another small four door truck with the room and comfort of this Tacoma so I bought one. I hope to learn a lot more about my vehicle on here and am looking for a few upgrades in the future.
