    There definitely seem to be more DCSBs out there than any other configuration...

    2019 DCSB SR5 with some really sweet wheels! I looked through the window and it's automatic (which entirely defeats the purpose of getting a DCSB in my opinion, as the DCSB is available with a manual transmission while the DCLB only comes in automatic); With the exception of the rims and possibly a lift kit, this appears to be a basic SR5...

    This truck threw me through a loop; I thought it was a 2020 model because it has a New Jersey "New Car Dealer" inspection sticker in the lower left corner of the windshield that expires in May 2025...

    In New Jersey, all new vehicles sold in-state are exempt from emissions testing for the first five years; I do believe that brand new vehicles bought outside the state and then immediately registered in NJ also get this exemption. According to Carfax, this truck is a 2017 model, and if was sold new in Jersey, it would have an inspection sticker that expired in 2022; I did not notice this until just now, but on the upper left corner of the tailgate, there is a dealer emblem saying this truck came from a dealer in South Carolina. Carfax confirms that it was sold new at Stokes Brown Toyota in Bluffton; It also spent the first few months of its in Alabama, but was titled as a corporate vehicle in New Jersey. By January 2018, with just 310 miles on the clock, it was sold a dealer in Paterson, New Jersey; Despite the fact that the truck was titled as a corporate vehicle in 2017, the January 2018 data shows that whoever bought it in New Jersey was the first owner...?

    What's even stranger is that despite not having any 4x4 badging and being sold new in South Carolina, this is a 4x4; I was hoping I'd finally found another 2WD model! As of January 2021, this truck was a little more than halfway between 34,K and 35K miles, which is fairly low for a 4-year old Tacoma (I'm guessing it was trucked up to New Jersey, because it's geographically impossible for it to have 310 miles on it if it was driven from South Carolina).

    The Carfax report calls it a "2017 TOYOTA TACOMA DBL CAB/SR/SR5/TRD", and those are obviously aftermarket TRD stickers on the bedsides; Given the lack of chrome SR5 emblems, and the fact that it's rolling on steel wheels, I'd guess it's SR...

    Also, note the dual exhausts; I get the feeling that the owner is in the process of building a budget TRD, and that if I see this truck at Raceway Park again it'll sporting aftermarket wheels with beefier tires...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it would also appear that this truck has a lift kit...?

    This 2018 AC, with its steel wheels and black bumpers, is clearly a base SR model; The Carfax report also confirms that it is RWD (Also a 2.7L)! As I stated above, my uncle's 2017 TRD Sport is the only 2WD 3rd Gen with a higher trim level than SR that I've ever seen in person. Also, this truck has less than 17K miles as of this post; I actually did meet the owner when he pulled up, and he was an older guy, so it kinda makes sense...

    On another note, it does not say "Loan or lien reported" when the truck was first titled, which means he likely paid cash for this truck; On top of that, the current value of this truck over $25K, for a base model 2WD!

    2001 AC SR5; I forget how many miles this truck has on it, but I talked to the owner during a previous visit to Raceway Park in 2018 and know it has close to 200K at a minimum (May have been more like 150K in 2018). Note the AAA sticker on the left side of the rear bumper; Proof it's the same truck...

    Brand spanking new 2021 AC TRD Off-Road in Army Green (one of my favorite colors); I was practically drooling the moment I laid eyes on this truck! Also, note the license plate frame; I don't think it's any coincidence that an Army veteran bought truck in this color...

    MGM 2013 DCSB TRD Sport


    Aesthetically, the DCSB looks better than the DCLB in my opinion, but I would choose the DCLB unless it was a TRD Off-Road with a manual transmission or a 2015 TRD PRO. I once crammed about two thirds of my cousin's one-bedroom apartment into the bed of my base model RC's bed; I would to see a DCSB do that, even with a bed extender...

    This is still a pretty sweet-looking truck though!

    Another brand spanking new 2021 TRD Off-Road (Gotta love the ability to run a license plate through Carfax)! DCLBs are nowhere near as common as DCSBs, so I will continue to photograph them regardless of trim level and color! Also, note in the second picture that the Chevy Silverado to the left of the Taco has New York plates as well; Obviously, I see more NJ plates than any other plate because of where Raceway Park is located, but New York outnumbers even Pennsylvania when it comes to vehicles with out-of-state plates in the spectator lot (I thought that given the venue's central location within NJ, it would be an even tossup between NY and PA; After NY and PA, Maryland is the third most common out-of-state plate I see at Raceway Park)...

    The 2018 AC above is clearly a base model, but I swear I've seen 3rd Gen SR5s with the standard steel wheels; However, most of the SR5s I see have wheels like the ones seen on the 2018 DCLB seen below...

    Don't know what year this is, as the license plate didn't come up on Carfax; I initially thought it was a 2001-2004 model due to seeing it from the back at first, but the front obviously gives it away as a 1995-1997 model. The truck also has a bench seat, and I can't remember if it had power windows and locks or not, but it has an automatic transmission...

    Once again, I was able to find out a ton of info about another truck by running the license plate through Carfax, and I believe this to be a fairly uncommon configuration; It is a 2016 DCSB with the SR5 trim, which in itself isn't particularly rare, but it is a 2WD model and also a 2.7L (Unfortunately, Carfax doesn't give transmission info)! Also, this is a 2016, but it has nearly as many miles as my 2010! As of January 2021, it had 126,892 miles and I would no be surprised if it has more than my truck at this point (Whoever owns it takes damn good care of it, and I'm guessing based on the Carfax report that they drive a lot for work)!
