    Hey everyone-
    Just following the rules here and posting my intro:
    I am a brand new Toyota owner as I have never purchased a japanese car, I have always drove american trucks and built custom air cooled VW's for myself.
    I picked up a new 2008 Toy Taco Double Cab pre runner. I lost my work truck as a result of cut backs and so I was looking for economy, room, cargo room and style. I think the Taco hits them all on the head!
    My wife and I are very happy with our Taco, the only complaint is that I didnt hold out longer to take advantage of the 0% financing currently available, oh well:D
    So for now the truck is totally stock. I will get a new stereo with built in satellite once my portable unit account expires next month.
    I picked up a early model tail gate extender off of a 02 Taco, the brackets of course are not a direct bolt on to my 08 but with a few cuts here and there they fit perfectly and look stock. Best $50 spent.
    I just ordered the Elite G4 folding tonneau cover which should be in next week, I'll post some pics once I have it installed.
    See ya in the forums.
