Wouldn't it be nice to have a new Taco?

    Several months ago I purchased my first ever Toyota. Luckily I purchased a 2010 Tacoma with 44K miles, one owner theft recovery. I bought the truck to haul a few items, run errants and keep miles off of my new SRX. Little did I know that I would like the Taco about as much as any vehicle I've ever owned. Now I wonder just how nice it would be to have a new Taco with all the options I'd like. Anybody else think about a new Taco?

    Lifetime LED 70W headlights 10-8-14 (set #2) Sylvania Silverstar fogs, front side windows tinted 27% to match the others, added Tacomaworld.com sticker, suspension TSB as of 7-21-09, Devil Horns by Andres, BFG's, Alpine with Bluetooth and Ipod contols, Rear view mirror relocation bracket, Ultragauge...
    What options are you missing? Can they be easily added for a lot less than you would pay for a new Tacoma?

    You won't be able to get all of the options that you have on you SRX. If you want that luxury you will have to step up to a full size truck.

    yes

    I thought about it in 2010...and again a few months ago. I acted on those thoughts both times.

    Generally speaking, I'd rather have a paid-off Tacoma than a new one.

    I don't own a Taco anymore.
    My 2010 had 51k on it when I bought it in April, and man...it looked brand spankin' new. Completely unmolested, even a new car smell.

    Now it's a completely molested, modded, and roughed up daily driver after 7 months. I felt much better doing what I did to a truck that had been broken in, than to a truck that was assembled 2 months ago.

    This.
    I paid off my 2010 Taco on Oct.22. It felt good to not have any payments, only bad thing is on Nov.1 I bought a 2013 4runner. My Taco is still my daily driver. I have about 350 miles on the 4R.

    the only way I would buy a new one is when they add a front locker as an option, that would be warrentied.

    i think once i pay mine off im going to SAC the ol' whore

    you'll be waiting a long time for a front locker if you wait for that 4.0 to die! i think the truck could be completely rusted to fuck in a junk yard and the engine would still fire up.

    Ohh, the OP has a 5 lug. Well that I can kind of understand. But regardless of the model they're only new for so long. Not to mention when "The Firsts" happen on a brand new truck they hurt that much more. Like the first scratch, the first dent, or in my case the first cigarette burn.
