    2013 Pyrite Mica TRD Sport
    Hi!
    I've been lurking here for a while trying to decide on a new truck. There really isn't lot to choose from in the small truck category. Ended up with a 2013 Pyrite Mica Tacoma Access Cab TRD Sport. Happy with the purchase. I like the fact that there's a large aftermarket of vendor support for the Tacoma as well as an active community of owners. I'd like to put a supercharger on it at some point, but not in any hurry to spend more now. Think I'll enjoy that new car smell for a little while. Thanks for all your help.

    I went to see a Magnetic Gray truck, but the Pyrite Mice really caught my eye. The website and brochures don't do it justice. It's one of those colors that can look very different, depending on the lighting. And not being a very common color was a plus. I'm very happy with it.

    Here's the first picture. I added the running boards and trimmed the front mud flaps.

    It's an overcast day, so the color doesn't really pop. My DD in the background, VW GTI.
