I wanted white of course but the wife wanted galactic gray. It's really her truck. This will be very mild build if that. Sliders and a small lift to do the passes, maybe a belly plate. Otherwise its the wife's daily driver and camper hauler family truckster. I'm looking forward to towing with it.

I'm kinda interested in the DT headers. Are they louder?

DT headers are not louder. A little throatier at WOT and 4000rpm's, other than that can't really tell much of a difference.

You're next, Subzali...

Sadly, I can understand why people go for those things. Why do they make car seats so freakin' huge!?

We're rockin' the Corolla and the Tundra for now, both fit the car seat ok. But if we have a second (not in the plan right now) then we'll be in trouble

If all goes to plan, my next ride will be either a 2004-2006 4-door Tundra or a 4 door Duramax. Can't live without the pickup.

But yes, I've been eyeing the next ride for the too (never too early). I like the new Siennas (did I just say that!?), but too pricy for us right now. I'd like something that gets at or near the 20mpg range, so 80s and 100s are pretty much out. Maybe a 4runner. Or maybe a non-Toyota will fill the ticket. Not sure.

At the same time, I've been trying to decide if I should get a DD to save on fuel. Been interested in the prospect of picking up a car at an auction, might be kinda fun to take the risk. But maybe if we upgrade the then I'll just drive the Corolla. The S gets about 36 mpg with her driving, it goes down significantly with me behind the wheel

Oh, and we're under contract for a house, so that plus the new baby and we'll pretty much have no $$ for anything for a few years But hey I can dream can't I?
