    I was just browsing the internet today and came across this truck from TRD. I think it looks pretty good except for the two tone. I really enjoy the lines of the vehichle though, and that rear suspension is pretty bad ass as well.

    Bought Taco completely stock on 7/25/09. Making the adjustment from my previous truck a 04 Dodge Ram HEMI quad cab 4x4.
    I guess I'm on my own, I think its Fugly! I don't really like the body, looks like the took all the bad parts of a Tundra and put it on that body.

    We all seem to agree the two tone paint sucks.

    BUT, that rear end.......whoa momma!

    I like it makes me think "futurer-istic". What's with the rear end I thought IFS wasn't the best thing for offroading is that the opposite for the rear end?

    ^I'm all for it. The Raptor's cool and all but it's a niche vehicle. No reason to even try to compete with it.

    A friend of mines friend get passes for me and a few others. He just made up a company and put us on as employees lol. 5 of us went back in 07 and it was super fun! Its $25 to go which is so worth it. Nice thing is once your in the system for sema you get sent a pass every year just have to pay then they send it in the mail to you.

    Why does Toyota slap that silver skid plate on? I even had to have mine powdercoated black. It looked out of place on my Taco let alone that concept truck.

    I think it's ugly

    Drop the gold and I'd buy it!! If you've seen the 2010 Ford SVT Raptor F-150, it's kind of along the same lines. Not a Ford guy, but if I had an extra $40,000 sitting around, I'd buy it.

    Eh, not really that impressed. I like some of the ideas on it but overall... I think the stock trucks look a hell of a lot better. The front bumper with the integrated winch and such is a good idea, but most of the aftermarket's got that down better. Overall I like how they're opening up the clearance on the front and back... the flair sides I dunno about, I like widebody kits but that's a little too... I dunno I don't care for it. Honestly it kinda is starting to look like a ford to me.

    I do like that steering wheel though, do want (but it needs radio controls!). Also, why does it still have carpet? lol...
