    Pro shocks are gingerbread throw always. Let’s be honest. No one is rebuilding them...when they blow they get replaced with what? Not the oem fox shocks lol. For that money, you’re installing fox 2.5 and tooling up for rebuilds.

    I'm okay with a dealership outfitting a few vehicles. What I don't like is when the dealership puts add-ons (like pin-stripping) on every vehicle on the lot.

    It's actually great for those who want their wives in new vehicles every three years. THats the only reason I lease her side of the garage, Plus she can write the lease off so it's really the best choice for us,

    Every vehicle whether paid for or not has a "cost per month" to drive That's the depreciation, Leasing allows for a much better vehicle for the money as a side benefit. and NO money down. Where can one drive a $35,000 SUV for only $350 a month no down?

    This is the only place I would let customize my Tacoma. I have been onsite to this place and they lift NEW trucks for dealerships before being sold. They are sold with warranty. This place is great and they have a deal with Toyota Corporation to do the work. Check them out.

    I buy cars and pay them off and keep them. I traded in a 2009 Tacoma and another car, almost paid off, for a 2013 Tacoma TRD Sport, and drove away brand new $30k truck paid off and $0 note.

    Oh Hell no ......I am too much onto the latest and greatest to keep any vehicle over three or four years....sometimes two years..one time I traded within 6 months. We can afford it so we do it.

    Sometimes the lastest and greatest was not such a good thing.... the 2016 Tacoma.

    I too like the latest and greatest. The Toyota list in my closing is just that, only my Toyota. My closing in the Camaro6g is this....

    All bought, no lease. The ZL1 was paid off in 18 months.

    Leasing is pure waste of money.

    Bringing it back to the point the OP was trying to make...I think some people are willing to pay that extra amount because
    1) They don't know any better what the cost is (so laziness)
    or
    2) You can buy this stuff and throw it into the financing verse buying aftermarket where you essentially need the cash saved up, and some may not have the ability to save that amount.
    ^Not that that's smart but I can understand

    Leasing is a great opportunity to have a new car all the time. Even in your example it’s not too expensive. Assume 10 years of ownership you pay about 8500 more if you get the same lease rate for all three future leases as today’s. This may be offset by maintenance or low miles etc.

    Hard to lease a Taco because if my budget had that 8500 extra going in, I’d blow that on mods instead!

    People that buy trucks like the one the OP posted are usually those with bad credit that don't have the money to put into upgrades. They will be hit with high interest rates and the truck will be repoed in less than a year.

    Thanks. I had some good times in the other rides, but I am sticking with what I have for awhile. Thinking of adding to the ZL1 some Kooks headers, Green Cats, Tony Momo TB, RotoFab Intake and maybe some Cat back system. Still in research mode.

    MY local dealership is aggressively offering me 3.5k less than I paid new for my 16' TRDOR AC. It has low miles and they have done all the services, and they can make more points on a used truck. At the end of it i'll have the same payment but for two more years.
    while not interested in trading my apple for an apple I am interested in restarting toyota care and my warranty + I will need new tires soon and new trucks come with new tires these days. I have the chance for them to sell me an incoming DCLB with the XP Predator "upgrade" package... the only parts of the XP kit I even like are the pro wheels and duratracs and while those don't justify the cost so i am using it as a negotiation point. I wont do the deal if that stuff isnt discounted because I don't NEED to.

    I just think these dealership bolt ons are good bargaining chips and they are easier to negotiate when they are already bolted on VS asking them to add them.
