    Well I went all over Houston looking for the truck I wanted(MGM dbl cab 4x4 SR5 longbed) and it didn't exist. Either MGM is a really popular color and they are selling out or the distributors/dealers are not ordering them in the first place. Anyway, I had to order it and it is inbound so I must wait patiently. I basically just got SR5 and towing and that is pretty much it. I figgered I could do the floormats/bedmats/runningboards/wheels/etc myself for cheaper so I got a pretty good deal on it. I am new to the board and excited as heck to get back in a Taco. My history of Toyota trucks has been a 90 standard cab 4wd...a 93 xtra cab 4wd and a 2000 xtracab 4wd. I look back over the history of all of my car ownership(including vettes/ZO6/GTO/etc) and the Toyota trucks are the ones I have kept the longest. So I am back and giddy as a schoolgirl.

    I guess the first neccessity for it will be floormats. What seems to be the best value in a floormat without going Walmart cheap and looking good???

    Thanks in advance. You'll be hearing a lot from me.

    I will admit I thought the cheap autozone mats would work, but that lasted a week before I ordered these from a dealer "clearing them out" on ebay

    I've got those too. The Weather Tech's look nice, but they cost more than double what I paid for my Toyota all-weather mats. So far I'm happy with them. They do a nice job of catching water and debris.

    I have the cheapy walmart floor mats. What I want is the weathertech floor LINERS. They protect alot more of the carpet than the mats do. The only reason I haven't jumped on the weathertech yet is the price - $100 give or take a little for just the front. It's on my list of things to get when I get the cash.
