The first unit of the first entry into the full-size pickup truck market by Japan's number one super-best awesome auto manufacturer rolled off the assembly line today at ToMoCo's all-new Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas (TMNT, turtle power!) production facility Friday, at a ceremony featuring the Guv of the state known mainly for steers and — well — the now gay-friendly Dallas, Rick Perry and Toyota Prez Katsuaki "Ken" Watanabe. Although we weren't there — we're assuming our invite was just lost in the mail — we did have our very own embedded reporter, code-named "Tokyo Rose," on the ground to provide us some exclusive first-hand pics of the goings-on. Check the camera phone campiness in the gallery below.
