    Long time reader, first time buyer. Just got on the list for a new cement TRD Pro double cab. Stealership says it shouldn't be more than 3 months. Looking forward to joining the crew here, it'll be a far cry from my old Suby Forester.

    Welcome and congrats on the purchase. I haven't been in the position of waiting for a truck like you are now, but from what I have read on here, all I can tell you is be patient and try to enjoy it because it'll probably feel like an eternity

    Thanks for all the kind replies! I was kinda torn between the Tundra and Tacoma, but once I drove them back to back it made the decision super easy. I don't know how that new Tacoma sells at all, the engine and throttle response really are as bad as people say over on tacomaworld.
