No 2012 TRD Off Road for NY state? WTF?

    I went to my local dealer to inquire when they expect to receive the 2012 TRD Off Road on their lot. He checked his shipment information and told me that Toyota is not building any for NY or for that matter anywhere in the Northeast. He said that all have been allocated for the south?

    I went on Toyota.com to the build your truck application and could not get a TRD off road option to appear for my locale. I typed in multiple zip codes across the NorthEast from NY to NH and got zippo.

    I then on a lark typed in Charleston, SC zipcode and yup TRD Off Roads available.

    What the heck is Toyota thinking. Have they not driven in Western NY or for that matter anywhere in the NorthEast in the winter?

    Does anyone have any insight on this or been told the same crap?

    I can and that is what I will probably do, but I just can't understand the logic of Toyota on this one. In 2011, my local Toyota sold more TRD Off Road editions than the TRD Sport edition by a large margin.

    It seems like Toyota builds them in huge batches for each region. Sport 4x4's are almost impossible to find in the West right now.
