Get over it. Look, the 05 is great and all, but how many 05 owners out there are actually here because they want to wheel their truck? Cars and trucks today are rarely sold based upon how the truck performs, instead it's all about it's looks/presence/attitude. I'm sure most Moms will feel great while they are cruising in their 4x4 to drop their kids off at school, but lets face it, the only dirt they'll ever see is possibly a gravel driveway. So Toyota has designed a truck to keep up with that market. However they also know that some people look for authenticity in their car/truck. I mean, how many people buy a Ferrari to go race around a track? I'd bet very few, but it's nice to know they can, right? Same thing with the new 05... You probably won't wheel it, but the locker is still there to provide that authentic image.
So 05 owners take note: if you wheel your truck, awesome, I'll see you out on the trail, and I'd love to see it perform. If you're into malls, and you like to whine and moan, this is not the place for you.
