    I've lurked about for a little bit and finally decided to get registered.

    My old cars were both over a decade old when I first got them, so this whole thing is new to me. It's one heck of an upgrade from my old B3000 though! I've not owned a Tacoma before, nor have I owned a brand new vehicle, so I look forward to reading and learning about all the should and should nots from the experienced folks here. Especially since my new pickup and I will be hauling a full cargo trailer some 2000+ miles down to TX this summer! I'll be looking for all sorts of "care and feeding of your new truck" and towing stuff as well as continuing to enjoy the stories.

    Here's a cruddy cell phone pick of my pretty, shiny new toy and the trailer. :cool:

    "Pyrite Mica" for those in the know, but I just tell most people (including my gran) that it's "kinda brown." LOVE it already, it is dirty dirty dirty where I live. Already got hosed down by a 15 food muddy water splash from oncoming traffic, but doesn't show.
