    Well since the meet I have been thinking about getting a 4x4. I spent a few hours online getting in contact with every large dealer close to me. Then I went to test drive some 09 4x4s. I decided to drive a auto to see if I like it. I thought it was ok till I drove home in my manual which is much nicer in my opinion.

    I am trying to get a dealership to swap over my icons, uca's, aal, and trd cai to the new truck and absorb the labor cost.

    I almost had a deal on a 08 but I think I am going to go for a 09 manual dc 4x4 black and I am going to have them throw on those black fj rims.

    they started at 7.9 then 5.9 what kind of rates are people paying at the moment.

    thats amazing if they switch all your stuff over. I dont think they would considering liability issues, along with warrenty issues? And then to have them not charge you? wow..let me know how that goes..lol

    They should let you switch all your stuff over, they'd be taking all the new stuff off your '09 and putting it on the truck they are gonna be selling.

    I did tell them they could do it that way but they seemed fine with reinstalling the original parts. I kept them for this exact reason. They asked my millage then said they could use the originals cuz I only have 55000 on them. well see though nothing is finalized yet. ?They will add some on the back end for sure.

    wat?
    i got 4.99%, but that was going through a local credit union. and i swapped all the parts myself from my 07 to my 09. i truct myself more than i would trust a service department to do it, unless they explicitly said they would cover it all under the factory warranty

    thats the thing its a truck center and they do tons of lifts and it doesnt effect the warranty. they sell the same icons in the service/parts department.
