    Nice. No hood scoop... hmm. I can’t wait for my truck to be delivered and for the first time in my life, I'm actually looking forward for snow. We get it pretty nasty over here and further North at our weekend home, knee high snow fall is very normal. I've never driven a pick-up truck let a lone rear wheel drive. So, I have to thread lightly for a while.

    Nice...thats the same one I have on my Taco. Did you get the optional keyless entry? those lids keep everything nice and dry.

    No on the optional keyless entry, didn't really see a need for it. They are really nice lids.

    Reminds me of when I lived in Vermont... I had a '78 Jeep Wagoneer with a V8 360 and quadra-trac...oh when gas was $1/Gallon:( . It does look fun though. Although I wouldn't trade it for four-wheelin in the pineapple fileds on Maui...all I want to scrape from my windshield is mud! It does bring back memories though...i always loved the first snow...then got pretty tired of it.
    Your Taco looks cool though!

    Is the ELD something that can be picked-up after market, maybe from the dealer?

    Thats an option I would love to have.

    You have to compare prices on other dealers, if you like to save some cash. I have an rt extang and it works great for me.

    Can you get the ELD installed afterwords or does it have to come from the factory? I was limited to the options on the lot because I bought an '06, but I would like to get the ELD at some point... it's fairly high on a list that's growing longer of stuff I want to add.

    Getting the ELD might entail quite some work (finding a TRD offroad rear axel) or you could go with ARB Airlockers. I haven't priced them but I figure it might be a little cheaper than finding and swapping out rear ends and running the wiring for the ELD.
