    Nada yet, just a Bestop
    Well, I joined this site several years ago as a lurker and owner of a 98 Taco. Had it for 2.5 years and loved it. Never a problem other than a paper thin frame. My truck was a buyback rust rail. After cashing my check I did the unthinkable and bought a gas chuggin 93 Silverado. I enjoyed the full size truck and awesome power of the 5.7 350, but the longer I had it, the more I missed sitting in a Taco. I told myself my next truck would be a Tacome double cab. My wife has been urging me to get rid of "that ugly truck" and that I should "buy what I want". So, being a good husband and all, I decided to start window (internet) shopping. After looking at dozens of trucks, I came across a 2010 Double cab TRD with 17K miles. It was a great deal and I jumped on it. It was a birthday present to myself and it feels good to be back. Bye bye bowtie (sold in 10 minutes to my buddy's son) and hello Tacoma. Ordered a BesTop for $515.16 (total cost with no tax and free shipping) from 4wheelonline.com and gonna slowly mod it after the new year. Color is Pyrite Mica. Will post some pics soon.

    Haven't even put 1000K miles on the new one yet, but she sure is pretty. It's an auto and my first was a stick. I have a company vehicle (work van) that I use the majority of the time. I usually put on less than 10K miles a year on my personal vehicle. I use it mostly for hunting or traveling to the in-laws. Bottom line is, I'm in another Taco and loving it. I must say, the BesTop certainly does get a lot of looks.
