Well after 20 years of being a legal driver here in the state of Texas I finally bought a brand new truck on Saturday. This is my 2010 Tacoma TRD OFFROAD in the Graphite Grey with the Borla Exhaust. I must say that I am one happy dude. I have been seeing everyones posts of new trucks and I could not wait for mine. Enough talk here is my truck the day after at the Ranch.

Looks like the beds alreay broke in! Nice truck. Word of warning though, I had those same tires on my F150 when it was new in '06, and only got 30,000 miles out of them. The ones from the factory dont last as long as the ones from say, Discount or NTB. If they are 18" tires like mine they are very expensive, and not very good off road in sand or mud.

Yea that doe lost a few quarts of blood. When I shot her we thought that I missed cause she just stood there for like 5 seconds. Then the wind blew and over she went.

I think the truck is going to meet SLP over Christmas sometime. I figure it is better for them to meet each other now then in the heat of the battle this summer.

What tires did you replace them with? I've got an '07 F150, and my factory tires suck. 26,000 miles and they are pretty well done.

Now's a good time for SLP because it's been raining a lot and the sand should be packed..........maybe!

Congrats on the truck and the deer!

bluewater,

My '08 F-150 Super Crew came with Michelins. I ruined 1 with a sidewall puncture within 6 months. Had several low tire pressure sensor lights come on over the next year and a half. Several patches and plugs - darn screws and mesquite thorns.

Just replaced them with BFG All Terrains. I wanted 10 plies and a little more agressive appearance. They look good, but... noticeably rougher ride - I mean you can feel every pebble you run over, and fuel economy has gone to heck. Not sure if that is from driving slowly around the ranch for several days, or if the off road tires really affect highway mileage. To be determined after hunting season.

I'll have to look at BFG. I have the 18" rims, so I wasn't having any luck with the online tire sizers for most of the big box tire retailers around where I live. **** tires on there suck, and I can't imagine the risk I'm going to take with towing my boat the 900 miles for the move if I don't replace them....

Man I asked for a free hat and was told that they did not have any. As for the deer it pays to have great friends with ranches so she was a freebie.

That is a pretty truck. I don't buy foreign vehicles. I have nothing to say. This is just to boost my post count :cheers: Can I have a backstrap?
