Nice screen name.
I think I believe it. I am in the process of a very similar deal. One dealer said he'd work with me and we could order. He was very up front and said that he's seen it get refused by the factory after a few weeks of waiting. I placed my order 5 weeks ago and he expects to be able to give me a build date anytime now. I'm still a little skeptical, but so far everything he's told me has been right on. If my truck is exactly as ordered it will have VSC - which is essentially unheard of in this region and rare almost anywhere. If it's just like I ordered I gotta believe it was really built to order. I hope to know in 6-8wk.tonys10 said:you did not custom order...all you did was order a combination that they make that a dealer then looked to see when it would be built. If you said you ordered a double-cab without a sliding rear window or a PreRunner double-cab with a 6-speed then I would say you got a custom order.

You can fool yourself, but you can't fool the Nation. Welcome.RTFM said:Since it was not listed as an available combination in the tacoma sales brochure, the dealer called it a custom order. When we looked at the brochure, the 4x4 was not listed as available in the DC TRD Sport, only 2x4. He put it in as a special order, said he's done several either way.
So, maybe it isn't quite custom per tonys10's example, its still what I wanted, and I didn't have to settle for anything I didn't want, so I'm happy either way.
LOVE IT!!!! :clap:boone88rr said:
Haha! Im pretty sure that is not a custom order. Your dealer just had to wait until it could allocate one from the factory. But that doesnt matter, as long as you are happy with your truck, who cares what kind of order it was.Fitz235 said:You can fool yourself, but you can't fool the Nation. Welcome.
Working on the pics. Its been dark when I leave home, dark when I get back, and running like a wild thing in between. Took some last night, and the flash just can't quite push that far in total darkness. Will try to have a life for a while Saturday morning, take and post then.decoy562 said:Welcome, nice screen name, where's the pics?
