    Hi... I have been lurking on the site for about a year. It has been a valuable source of information and validation for my recent purchase.

    I have a 2017 DCSB TRB 4x4 Sport in black. I replaced a later model Audi Q5. I was tired of hauling stuff around in a luxury SUV. I also pull boat and cargo trailer full of toys. I passed on the Chevy Colorado because the of appearance/image/stance/reliability/resale value of the Toyota.Still getting used to driving a pick up, though... squirrelly in the snow.

    No major modifications yet. My only regret is not getting the factory tonneau and luxury package with improved stereo, dual zone climate, etc... (but I did not want a moon roof) However, I am mostly satisfied with the truck. Bummed about not having auto headlights and no power seat, but it's very livable for a daily driver.

    I most want a cap for long hunting/fishing trips. I only plan to use it occasionally and store it when not in use, so I don't really want to buy a new one. Likely going to install a remote start as well.

    Look for a post on the "Wanted" section of the Gen 3 Caps/Shells thread. I want a simple ARE Z Series or a Snugtop Rebel, but I would consider a Leer if it looks good.

    Welcome! (From another Taco owner in Michigan) I can tell you that there aren't very many of us up here in "Big Three" territory. It can be hard to find used parts that aren't 100 miles away. But, the information is always free and you don't have to drive for that. Enjoy the Truck!
