    posted some pics in the live thread, didnt test drive any cars but I set in some tacos and Fj's

    Tacos: 07+ and one 05
    I will def. need the Dbl cab. i couldnt even get in the back of the A.C.
    comfy seats. D.C. has plenty of room in the back. holy crap tons of cup holders!
    too many damn prerunners or A.C. models.

    FJ:
    rear seats are super roomy and comfy
    lots of storage space.
    all have std. locker and a-trac
    only thing I have to gripe above is how slippery the damn floors are! i damn near fell out of the car when I tried to get in it because I wasnt ready for how slick the floor is. that could be the deal breaker between the taco and FJ.


    I am going to test drive them soon. Do any of you guys with Fj's have the slippery floor issues? I can see that driving me bonkers. and if i put all weather mats in there for traction, I am kinda defeating the purpose of the floor.


    there is one taco in particular that I am really eye balling though it is pretty high in price I would def. get it down quite a bit or walk.

    06 47k miles, 1 owner, 4x4 $24,995
    it also has a tonneau cover and the aftermarket tint which is nice too.


    ugh. i hate car shopping

    thanks. I am aiming for the taco more. I miss not having a bed to throw my dirty bikes and crap in. also the towing abilities that I occasionally need to have a use for.
    ok cool. so 2k it is. hopefully I can get that silver taco down enough.
