    Haha yep. :D
    Taco buying checklist:
    ( ) get rid of Mazda
    (x) find perfect Tacoma
    (x) learn how to distinguish leaf spring tsb
    ( ) check it for updated leaf springs
    ( ) get Tacoma

    as you can see, I have 2 down, 3 to go. :mudding:

    yeah i liked that color more, but the truck was a suprise...also my parents said that color would stand out to cops more...it was funny b/c when my parents were signing the papers the salesman took me out to look at more tacos and i was like i like the swb and the 4x4 trd more than anything and he gave me a funny look

    They only came as V8's so it's either the 4.6L or the 5.4L Triton. (if it says Triton V8 on some badge then you got the 5.4L) 5.4L has like 270HP and 280-290ish TQ...not sure but my mom always thought her 01 Exped with the Triton was a bit underpowered. Should be great for the trail though. Good inbetwen power and low end TQ. Definitely good for crawling.
