That's a pretty bold trade... The Taco's are very nice trucks. I have said that if I get another pickup (ever) it will be a Tacoma.
Nice looking rig!! Hope you enjoy it!

@ - paul8443,
The Tacoma's are solid little trucks and they definitely look awesome lifted but their is something about a Jeep that totally blows the Tacoma away especially the improvements and upgrades that have been made with the 3.6 engine. I think this is where Toyota is lagging behind. Toyota has not changed the Tacoma engine in several years. I was also getting 15 MPG. Ford, GMC and Chevy simply do better with a larger truck. I think the Tacoma to buy would have been a mid 90's model. I would wait until Toyota develops a newer with more power and fuel efficiency truck before I would buy another one. They are very pricey trucks for what you are getting. My wife and kids have never smiled more than when driving this Jeep.

Thanks to everyone for all of your compliments.

I agree, I also have a tacoma and the millage is horrible. Its an ok truck but I was expecting better for and import. I going to keep my truck though and just buy a second vehicle. Im still deciding between a 2d and 4d. Decisions decisions.

The wife has an 06 tacoma and now I'll have the 2013 JKUR. Compromise, I went from a 2 door to a 4 door. If there is any chance of family or friends coming with you on a trip or having kids, think about getting a baby out of a 2 door. Enough said.

I don't find it to be so bad... I've got three kids, the youngest of whom is six weeks old. I can get his little carrier in and out without too much trouble.
