    Wow, and I thought the 4Runner forum was intense - you ladies and gents are way more insane!

    Been a member of T4R.ORG for years but am jumping over here to share my winter test of 2012 Tacoma TRD. Anything anyone wants to know about anything, just let me know. Same goes if I'm wrong about anything.

    I'll be updating this post for next two months, maybe longer if I end up buying the damn thing.

    Vehicle Reviewers huh? In the Great White North we sadly do not get a double cab Off-Road as you know :(

    Mag Grey FTW though.

    Also the interior space of 13 cup holders(IIRC) doesn't suffice for you?[OP]

    There was a lot of wood back there; in addition to the logs, I had about 8 or 9 rounds weighing about 50 lbs each, I'd say, so that's at least 400 lbs. Maybe I am a bit high, though.
