    I ordered some AM decals on Ebay without the Mountain.... Gonna see if they look ok. I may or may not apply them. I may keep them files away until trade in time since my local dealer had no clue what the truck was after I brought there when the sales guy I bought two cars from told me i paid too much for a "base" Tacoma after seeing pics. He tried to make me feel bad because i did not buy his rough 2008 Sport for $2k MORE with 32K miles. It had stains on the seats, Carfax indicated a collision and the tailgate had a dent removed with seemingly a ball peen hammer... Feeling inside cubbys in the cabin I came out with black fingers....and it was "Certified" LOL the dealer i bought mine from does not "certify" anything. they don;t feel its worth the time and money and sell their existing warranty vehicles for less than
    'Certified" ones at competitors dealerships. Some people need the peace of mind of 100K drive train. I will buy the $600 7/75 Toyota warranty from Massachusettes if I need the same. The South East region Ex service contract is administeded by Fidelity insurance..Not Toyota and is owned by the same guy who frnachises all the dealerships...can you say conflict of interest?

    Here is his...Looked great in pics

    Gonna throw the service dept a few bones though to establish myself for any warranty or service contract work down the line siince I did not buy there. Probably the 30K service...then they will not give me any problems should I need the benefit of a doubt. This has worked for me before.
