    2014 Reg Cab 4WD
    Hello TW members. I just ordered my 3rd Gen 2 Taco reg cab 4x4, should have it sometime in March. This time around I opted for an auto tranny, as I really like the bucket seats & console. Plus I wanted the option to install a remote starter as well. The truck will be Super White with the Ivan Stewart wheels & BFG tires.

    I work for Toyota North America, doing new bodyweld equipment installation. Specifically, I work in a group that's responsible for dimensional accuracy of the bodyweld equipment. We work at all of the Toyota N.A. plants. I've been to the Taco plant in Mexico (how appropriate :D) and more recently to the San Antonio truck plant to install the Taco equipment uprooted from NUMMI.

    Here's a pic of my previous '09 Magnetic Gray Taco. The new one will be just like this, only white.
    What the heck, here's a pic of my previous '07 white one as well. :D
