    So for the first time since 2008 I no longer own a Tacoma pickup. As an avid hunter, fisherman and lover of the outdoors I found the Tacoma trucks to be the perfect blend of size and capability to do pretty much whatever I needed/wanted to do. Hauling firewood, atv's and hunting stands were every weekend activities.

    Until now.

    In my previous jobs I left the house and went somewhere to work. Every day now I go in a different direction. My new job involves a lot of visiting customers and job sites and a lot of city driving. It also requires that I carry samples and literature to show customers. A Tacoma A-cab with a 6-speed stick was the wrong tool for the job.

    Solution?

    Sold the 06 A-cab 4x4 off-road truck with 81k in VG condition and purchased a gently used 07 SR5 4x4 in Graphite Gray with 95k. The deal worked out where I didn't have to pull any money out of my pockets and I can write off the sales tax and vehicle registration and license fees so it is a win/win.
    I now have a capable vehicle for both my business and personal needs. Figuring out how and where to store all of my "incidentals" has been the only problem I have encountered so far. A medium sized duffle bag now holds my recovery, medical and camping/outdoorsy related gear and some tools. I am grateful for the cavernous glove box and center console.

    I'm looking forward to learning more about my 4Runner. Thanks for having me as a member.

    Welcome to the site! You're in sales I'm guessing.

    Any pics of your new 4R?

    Not yet. I only have some driveway cell phone pics that don't do it justice. Once I get her KW clean I will snap some.
