    No,

    Tip #1, is to not drive like Kase.

    Tip #2, get a second job, dump any baggage and build a bad ass truck!

    Haha.

    It's funny everyone always talks about the double cabs and how cool they are and look. But when you really get down to it with them 99.9999% of the time they always say man I wish I could have a single cab I just need the room.


    Single cabs... We just rock. :)

    I posted these somewhere else. Did not know there was a dedicated Reg Cab thread. Picked this up a week ago. My wife loves it. She has drove it to work 3 times!

    Tis my 3rd Reg Cab Toyota. Had a 95 then a 2003 which I traded in on this one. Dealer gave me $5100 for my 03 which was a two wheel drive and had a rusted out frame.
    Once I got home, I checked the tire inflation. Dealer had 28# in all 4. Pumped em up to 34#.
    The AM radio sucks donkey balls. I think I may have to take it back see if something wrong. FM works fine so,,,,,

    Nice. I have the same truck.:cheers: What do mean the AM radio sucks? I think it's pretty nice to have a touchscreen, bluetooth on a base model. The sound sucks though.

    No reception. Can't get a single AM station. Yet can get about a dozen FM.
    Missing my fav AM sports talk station.

    Great choice in color and body style. I like how it fits in your garage!

    I picked up a canopy the other day off craigslist. I was a little on the fence at first, but it's growing on me. The cap is an ARE from 2009 that used to be white, but the previous owner had it Line-X'ed. I was pleasantly surprised with how well it matches.. Got a deal I think, too!

    In my honest opinion I like the black canvas ones. This one makes the truck look like an older model Tacoma.


    It still looks dope though single cabs have that ish about them that Osama could drive one and people would be like that mother F*r piece of $hit. Damn dope taco though


    Or maybe lift it. I think on some tires and a nice set up shit would be smokin

    I agree that the Softop looks better. And I'll admit, I do feel a bit "old man" driving this thing around now. haha.

    I got a deal on cragslist for this thing, and I fugure I can just turn and sell it if i decide I don't want to keep it.

    The extra height is nice for me though cause I can still fit my bike standing up in the bed of the truck. I was also thinking a hard top would provide some level of security for hauling around snowboarding stuff, etc.

    I agree with both of you that a lift and some new wheels/tires would be sick. I just can't bring myself to make any modifications on a brand new vehicle. haha. Is that weird?

    Here's a before pic, albeit, a shitty one:
