Throughout the history of our publication, the Toyota Tacoma has remained the most popular vehicle among our readers, a reflection of the model’s reliability and accessibility.

So... We Lifted the Kimono on the New DECKED Midsize Product

A couple of weeks back, we did something noteworthy, we debuted the new DECKED drawer storage system for midsize trucks like Tacoma and Colorado/Canyon to a select group of media.  We figured, now that the cat is soon to be out of the bag, why not share our new product at a little pow-wow with the automotive media, related influential types, a few guys who probably never miss a free meal and a smattering of others to lift the veil on the midsize system we have been working on for over 18 months.
