    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone on here for all the great info. Some forums are about the best source of collective information, this being one of them. I've been reading and lurking a few for a while and finally choose this one to join and sure I won't ever regret it.

    I'm hoping to have a new taco soon, if a dealer will give me a decent trade value for my '10 venza, I'll have one.

    So if any one has any leads on screaming deals on a taco or any "need to know" info, I'd greatly appreciate the help.

    I've already decided on mods and various customization, but don't have the truck yet! Forums seem to do that to me, it's like window shopping, ends up expensive.

    I'm going crazy cruzing the forum without having the truck yet! I'm this close to just buying stuff for it, figuring I will eventually have one.

    I may have found one though, it's an 09 dbl cab, off road, 4wd, JBL, with a camper shell, with 55.6k on it, asking price of $26.8k.

    Kbb puts the trade in at $23.5k and the retail of $29.8k. Is $3k below the "retail" a decent range, obviously I'll try and talk down some, or is it already pretty decent priced?

    Anybody out there buy used and have any info on this. I've usually bought new ones and I've done pretty well usually, but it's been a while since buying a used. Still customary to figure about 10% off is decent?

    I'm trying to get a good idea because I'm thinking maybe tomorrow I'll go check it out and bounce some numbers off them.

    Thanks again, can't wait! I'm like the kid who wants the Red Ryder BB gun, it's all I can think about lately! And I keep forgetting it is supposed to be my wifes...dam.
