    2010 Double Cab TRD off-road
    Hi all. I just bought a Tacoma this weekend and wanted to introduce myself. After considering a Wrangler unlimited and a Frontier, I decided on a Tacoma. This is my fourth Toyota truck. Previous ones were: a 1990 2wd manual base pickup; a 1998 4Runner manual; and a 2003 Tundra access cab 6 cylinder manual. They were all great so, I decided to dive in again. I bought a new white 2010 double cab 4wd TRD Off-Road manual. It came with the TRD Quickshifter manual short-throw and the TRD shift knob.

    I'm impressed with how this truck rides. It has a lot of power (and I live at 7000 feet above sea level), is quiet, smooth riding and very comfortable. Frankly, compared to my previous Toyota trucks, this one rides like a luxury car. Of course it has a bit of bounce but not much.

    Now, I'm looking into seat covers and already ordered a locking bike carrier for the bed.

    Happy to be a Toyota truck owner again!
