    I've heard reports of people seeing 2012's with the old style lights. Figure it's probably toyota getting rid of a surplus.

    Although i'm sure its not unheard of brand new cars having spiffy new (plug & play) parts swapped out with older, lower-value ones so the seller can make an extra buck. Why would you look for brand new cars on fleabay anyway?

    do the models that dont have the backup camera have the non-led lights? I though the led's were to help light up the backside of the truck for the backup camera.

    Well, sort of both on and off topic... but has anyone noticed that they are using both the first and second gen style TRD stickers on the 2012. Of all the photos posted on TW of the 2012, I would say it's close to 50/50 on sticker style.

    2012 base models reverted to the non-LED tail lights. Toyota's way of making the SR5 look more upscale and saving a few bucks on the base model at the same time.

    At least a bed mat is included. :)

    I was looking at the 2012 booklet at the dealer. The 2012 looks ok. Now have 4 D rings in bed.

    Wish I had kept so I could scan some photos for you guys.

    No only 2 D-rings and 2 other cheap tie downs on the side of the bed near the cab.

    I absolutely cannot stand the shape of the front flares now when you follow the way it flows into the front bumper!

    Dealer said you have a choice of tail lights and stickers on the 2012. Then again, he also a had a brochure for the 2012 put out by Toyota that had about half the vehicles in the pictures as 2011's.

    Maybe they still make those gay bras for the front of your vehicle.. the equivalent of putting a bag on her head.. as the joke goes.
