    I love this truck it hauls a$$, it is one of the faster current production trucks, I believe it is only beaten out by the Syclones, SRT-10, Raptor, Titan, 5.7 tundra. Since I cannot afford the first three, the titan is ugly, and the Tundra gets 13 I am very happy with my purchase. Plus i got 20 mpg on my first tank, and thats with my not being able to let off the skinny pedal. Either way this thing gets down the road quick. I know most people get trucks to haul, but this thing hauls 6,500lbs which is more than I'll ever need.

    I got a 2wd this time, because I have never needed to use it on my nissan, and I refuse to offroad in a new truck. I still have my old one to fix up for that. Plus I want to get into some faster dirt road type stuff, which this fits the bill perfectly for with an auto LSD, I had this thing bombing down a dirt road going 90mph....

    This thing handles awesome and came with some free extras (it helps having a mother in law as a salesperson) I got a back up camera, tow hitch, trans cooler, oil cooler, and step rails for the same price as without.

    I just added some temporary cheap seat covers (I have a dog that rides inside, I'm a softy), and some all weather floor mats, I will be adding a black toolbox, tint, maybe a mild lift, and maybe an exhaust later down the road. Thanks for looking. I am very, very happy with this truck. Thanks for looking guys.
    Better pics to come.

    This is the only one I got with the new cheapo seat covers, and a partial pic of the reason for the seat covers. [​IMG]

    I'm using the hatchie bottoms and they've held up well. There's some really good deals on UWS boxes on Amazon with free shipping. Low pros are $259.

    Nice truck

    Me too dg!
    Rocketman- I had a UWS on my old truck and I liked it I will probably sell it to fund my new one. I looked at ones at tractor supply company today and was really impressed with them, and the price is a bit lower.

    When my '02 GMC wears out, I'm thinking another Toyota. Last one I had was an '86.

    Nice Tacoma man! The 4.0L V6 in those is a very good engine. I had an '05 Tacoma X-Runner that was a 6 speed manual and it was a lot of fun. It was for **** in the snow though. My 4x4 Tundra is much better :)
