    Hey everyone, just got an '11 Access Cab 4x4 TRD Offroad, and joined the forum. I've been doing my resaerch and looking into the Taco for awhile before buying it, and this site was a huge asset in finding answers to the questions/concerns that I had. Y'all are awesome, keep it up!

    Thanks guys. I have learned 3 things in the past week:

    1. As much as I loved my Ford Explorers, this Tacoma is significantly better in many ways.

    2. This was my first, and will probably be my last brand new vehicle. I bought my previous vehicles cash and am learning to appreciate how nice it was not having a payment...

    3. I love my taco even more every time I get in it!

    Learned some more stuff about the truck this afternoon:

    Did a little wheeling (nothing serious)- ya know, to test the features ;)
    and all I was thinking at the time was WOW!

    The rear locker is the shit. And as for the A-Trac, i'm not sure what was being smoked by people who've posted on this site that A-Trac is anything other than awesome- I went through the same mud 3 times: 4LO, locked, and locked with A-Trac engaged, and there was a noticeable difference in the 3- the ATRAC being the best traction BY FAR.

    Also learned how much I like the back-up camera. Its great for revealing all the rocks/stumps/branches and other dent/scratch/gouge causing shit that you can't see in your mirrors.
    Incidentally, i learned the value of this camera after picking up my first dent :D

    I love this truck and couldnt be happier that i bought it!
