Not sure if anyone has provided any data to you but I just bought an Undercover hard top for my 2008 access cab PreRunner. This one is lightweight and can be easily removed in 5 minutes or less if you want to use the entire bed. It has 2 hydraulics struts for ease of lid lifting, weighs 58 lbs, has an LED light for lighting the interior of the bed at night and made of lightweight composites. I was comparing the painted versions of Leer with the hard cover of others and settled on Undercover. The Leer version was too heavy and complex to remove. Also there is the concern of cracking the lid and/or paint while removing. It took 30 minutes to install. You can find prices on line and use for negotiating with local dealers. Don't forget the discount coupons offered on several brands.Tanker

I'm thinking of purchasing a hammok style rear seat cover/dog bed ( http://www.hunterk9.com/site/870877/product/BOW-24 ) for my '09 access cab, but the hammok is suspended from straps that are looped around the front seat headrests, and I'm concerned that may interfere with the active headrests in the event of an accident.
Similarly I am considering purchasing either a telesoping barrier ( http://www.radiofence.com/pet-barriers/4-bar-auto-barrier.htm ) or a net ( http://www.storesonline.com/site/870877/product/330 ) to separate the front and rear seats (to keep the hound confined to rear) but again I'm concerned both may interfere with either the seat-mounted or side-impact air bags.
Has anybody had any experience or read anything regarding the above?
thanks in avance!
#21 of 27 Any Info on the 2010 Tacomas
Mar 05, 2009 (11:53 am)
I was considering ordering a Tacoma to ge the options I want. I'm told no orders will be filled until June. When I asked Toyota's customer service department, they assumed I was talking about a 2010, but they couldn't provide any details on when the 2010s will come out or whether there would be any changes to the vehicle. This forum indicates the 2009s came out in July of 08. So my assumption is the 2010s will be this summer, especially given the recent rebates to clear out the inventory.
Does anyone have an information on when the 2010s will be out or whether there will be any changes to the vehicle?

Hi there - has anybody had any experience w/ aftermarket backup sensors? I'd like to install one on my '09 Tacoma: http://www.backup-sensor.com/ but i'm unsure how difficult it will be to install, and how well it will work.

#24 of 27 Is there any chance...

that Toyota will bring back the auto. on the column instead of on the console? I like the column set up better because it gives a little more room to fit three comfortably. Anybody know?
