    Tried trading my last pickup (2003 Mazda B2300) in on a 2010 Subaru Forester. They are a great "mini" SUV, but I missed having a truck. I'm now into my second week of owning a new 2011 Dual Cab, short bed, V6, Automatic, mica colored TRD Off Road and I love it!

    I know I will probably think of the Subaru every time I'm at the pump filling up, but I really couldn't be happier. I've ordered a TracRac G2 30000-04 ladder rack that should arrive tomorrow, and I'll be using it to haul 2 or more kayaks. It will be so much easier than using roof racks.

    We just started recreational biking and I will soon be making some sort of rack to haul 2 to 4 bikes in the bed. I am anticipating some height issues when hauling both kayaks and bikes, but should be able to figure it out - especially with all the helpful info I have already found in the TW Forums.

    This is really a great forum and the members do a great job of discussing the thread topics and posting really good photos. I'm happy to belong.
