    It's been an extremely hard decision, but it looks like I will be selling the Tacoma. My wife and I just had twins and due to complications with the babies she needs to stay home. So to make the budget work I have to get something more fuel efficient. ( I go through about $400 in gas a month + the wife's 4Runner at $70 a tank) I am really bummed about it as this is the truck I have wanted for years but the family comes first. I will get some good pics up later this week of it and post it in the buy/sell if anyone is interested. It's a Silver 2006 Double Cab Long bed SR5 PreRunner TRD Sport. It is in extremely good condition. Only flaws are a scratch on the under half of the rear bumper, needs a new windsheild which I will provide and I need to change the power lock on the driver's door but I have the replacement part in hand. It has almost 99k miles right now. I just put the 5100's on it a few months back set at 1.75 with the Toytec AAL. It doesn't sit right level when empty but during the winter when I have 300lbs back there is sits perfectly level.

    Don't let people fool you on the PreRunner 2WD aspect, I live in Salt Lake City, UT and last winter was pretty bad as far as valley snow goes. It does exteremly well in the snow! I never once got stuck or slid off the road. You just can't drive like an idiot. I just put a 300lb water res (which I will include in the sale) in the back and good tires and I never once had the tail end come out from under me.

    So that being said, if you know anyone that would be interested in my Tacoma, send them my way. I haven't come up with an official price point yet but I owe about $15k on it so I would like to walk away at least even if not a little ahead to help with all the hospital bills from the babies. Nada puts it at $20k clean retail but I am not expecting to get that by any means. I live in a 4wd market so I think it would be fair to start at 16 to 17ish and go from there, any input on that?

    Anyone here have experience with the Camrys? I think that is the route I will go, if not then a Corolla.

    Pics attached are before the Billys and AAL but like I said, I will get some new ones up when I post it in the buy/sell later this week.
