Default Major sugery

I just happen to come across a double cab body so I swapped it along with an auto tranny and new 4.0. Wow! What a difference. So much more room and power also no more manual to give out on me. Can't forget the OHC I got too. On with the pics:




























































































































Just fooling. I traded in the Ranger and got a Taco:






Rear view camera:


OHC:


My two favorite buttons:



Tight fit:




Its a bran new 2010 Toyota Tacoma 4wd TRD offroad double cab short bed. No long be because I think it looks retarded and also they don't offer the offroad package in a long bed. No manual because they don't offer a manual double cab in CA and I was just tired of a manual. Offroad package means shocks, rear locker, ATRAC(front "locker" through braking system), tow package, HDC(hill decent control) engine oil cooler, trans cooler and some other stuff. I'm so stoked. But even after all the b!tching and blah blah I miss my Ranger. I drove off looking at it and I felt sad. A good but temperamental buddy is lost. I'm sure some of you will be glad that I wont be around. Hey guess what. I don't care. Keep the trash out of my thread.

My initial reaction was "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

But seriously....
Congrats on the new ride. And honestly it's a much better truck than the Ranger, as far as size/features.

Looks good. I like the Yota double cabs. How is the room in the rear seat? My buddy had a 04 double cab and riding in the back wasn't bad but it wasn't the best ether.

It is really nice! Why don't they offer a stick in CA? I would have bought the truck out of state.
