    I posted some questions last week, and just sealed the deal on a 2008.

    TRD -OR Access cab, white.

    I get to pick it up Friday. It has the certified platinum warranty so I plan on taking advantage of that and having a lot of the TSB's looked into if needed.

    Pretty psyched, been driving a subaru for years really looking forward to being back in a truck.

    I've moved around a lot over the years, called Colorado home for years and am currently living in South Dakota. Can't wait to move again to make use of this bad ass truck. At least it gives me a little while to put some sliders on it and a few other protection type necessities.

    Seems like a good group here, lots of information.

    I'm a snowboard addict, photographer, biologist, mountain biker, hiker, music lover kinda guy.

    Not really much special, except its mine! Pretty stock, 08 TRD-OR.

    So far the biggest negative aspect is the smell, A woman owned and it smells like candles or something. Gotta go spray some cologne in there or something.

    I've had a 4cyl subaru for ten years, and a 4cyl S-10 and a few other cars along the way, but damn this is the most powerful vehicle I've ever owned!

    Not a big point, but the stereo sounds better than expected.

    The 4wd light mod is definitely going to get done, its not a big deal since it is now my vehicle, but if anyone else drives it (nobody drives my vehicles tho), and just for my brain dead moments, it would be great to have it lit. I'll probably be lightly tinting the windows, and install sliders. Not sure what else I will do to the truck.

    Just took it to a local area to test out the 4wd...Wow.

    I'm impressed, I know I'm preaching to the choir, but it feels so damn solid, and just eats up the bumps and mud and stuff.

    No more being timid gettin my car thru deep puddles! I'm loving this truck!
