    wat?
    only differences are the finally updated mp3/wma head unit w/ an aux plug between the cig lighter and aux power ports...NICE...

    the sports are the only ones w/ the "smoked" headlights (aka slightly charcoaled headlight bezel)...ehh, would be changed w/ bhlm...

    the backup camera/updated mirror w/ monitor...VERY clear picture on it, but its only about 2" diagnal screen...

    the new tails are hideous...so would be swapped out w/ old ones that are nite shaded or shade the led ones....

    the new grilles all have the colored bars going to the toyo emblem...but from what i've seen, all colors of trucks have the same color bars in the middle...would look much better colormatched or flat black like on 05-08's...

    the standard side curtain airbags and trac controls are a nice plus

    there are switches to turn off the side curtain airbags and the traction controls...sweet ass

    i was disappointed that the back door speakers in the DC's werent moved to the headliner and that sub in the AC's is definately a sore thumb. also, the "barcelona red" color looks exactly like radiant red and the new timberland mica looks pretty sweet. i'm going to look at an 09 BSP DC sport 4x4 when it gets in...i'll be away that week, so i'll have to check it out when i get back...i was looking hard at the same truck, but in silver mica today and it stickered for almost $31k.

    I appreciate the offer, but I'm not interested in the Sport package, DBL Cab or 4 wheel drive to be perfectly honest. I'm looking for RWD access cab, with just the SR5. If the '09 doesn't work out, in terms of dealing, or availability, I'd default to the '08.

    I need a vehicle within the next month since I gotta haul myself and some furniture back to school early august so we'll see what happens.

    That satelit radio and aux input is nice. Think you could swap out the 09 radio and other parts to put in an 08? wouldn't be a bad idea

    I bet most dealers won't be ordering 09s until the 08s are almost gone.

    I like the 09 better, but if the 08's are like dirt dirt cheap... then I wouldn't mind buying it...
    I like smoke color lights!! 09 has the Aux jack... I can add that on anywhere or by myself.
    but 09 has the side impact air-bag that's really the key and the back up camera... which I can add myself also...
