    Finally got pics of the custom light bar that Axleboy did for me. I think it came out great. And they made a few more if anyone else is interested. You choose the number of light tabs, powder coat, etc...

    Looks good! What's he charging for those? Might be interested

    P.S. some jack ass rear ended me yesterday on 170. So looking like a base model black bumper coming soon. I thought about a plate bumper but don't know if I wanna she'll out $700 for one.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks! I know what he charged me, but I was the guinea pig ;) Drop Scott a line and he'll quote you based on the options you want.

    Glad to hear you're ok from the accident. I think a black base bumper would look pretty cool. Much better than chrome!

    Hi All,

    I was wondering what Toyota dealers are ones that you’drecommend in our area. If you rememberthe name of a sales rep, that’d be even better!

    I live on the IL side of the river and have gone into mylocal dealer, but the salesman (Jason Vice) gave me the worst experience that Ihave ever had…needless to say, he will never see a penny from me or my family. Granted, it’s only one guy and still plan togo back since they are the closest dealer to me.

    Before I do that, I want to start workingwith other dealers and get their quotes before I go back to them with a last chanceto “win” me back with a lower price. Thenagain, I am also the type of person who would rather give my money to a goodperson…even if it happens to be a tad more expensive. (Of course, they stillhave to get into my price point which is also TrueCar’s price point). :)

    Cheers

    Bought mine from Jerry Ackerman Toyota on Kingshighway in the city. I worked with Rebeccah Drannan, their internet sales person, and she was excellent. There was no haggling, she told me exactly how low they could go (which was lower than I was planning to offer) and she even stayed late to finish up the paperwork so I could take it home that day. Awesome experience.

    And before I went to Ackerman, I had a pretty horrible experience at Pappas in St. Peters. They didn't have the truck I wanted on the lot (which was to be expected as I wanted specific options), were doubtful they could trade for it (the perfect truck was sitting at Ackerman), didn't want to order one for me, and told me if they were able to trade for it, that I should be "ready to haggle" over the price. This was after the salesman was unable to show me the InTune features because he was already over on the data plan on his phone for the month.

    Pappas didn't get my money, Ackerman did. :D

    And she's easy on the eyes too. I ordered a truck from them without any issue. I low balled them and they met it. All I did was say that I had shopped around and had several other offers. It was really easy.

    Lol, I had thought about using that tactic on my last vehicle purchase but I forgot by the time I got around to the haggling. lol, oh well. Definitely a plus when they are easy on the eyes!


    Thanks Taco42...it's good to hear the bad stories as well as the good. It helps narrow things down.

    Bought mine from twin city Toyota in Herculaneum, Mo. I had to haggle with them for 2 days (walked away once) but ended up with what I wanted in the end. Ask for Ronda and if you happen to stop by tell them Ryan Schirmer referred you.

    Bought mine from Seeger as well. I even got mixed up on the offer I meant to give them, but didn't realize until after they accepted my offer. I agreed to pay what I offered, but showed them what I had written in my phone notes. They actually credited me to get me back to what I mean to offer when they didn't have to. I'd go back to Seeger as well.
