    but no risk of frying the elec system. I know its a basic 12volt system but the starting at 800 amps is what i was worried about. And im in FL coldest ive seen is 40's in Feb

    I had the Red Top D34/78 with 800cca and it works fine in the Tacoma. I now have the Yellow Top D34/78 with 750cca and didn't notice a difference.

    800 cca just means it can supply that much, your starter will still only draw what it needs, due to ohm's law and such, so no worries.
