In agreeance with all posts above. The Tacoma is a great truck. I being taller like a little more room and prefer the Tundra. Also you can get the Tundra with the standard 8ft bed. Just stick with the WRX for the winter. Unless you plan on getting some snowmachines or you really do need to haul stuff around you won't need a truck up here. Buy used, check ebay and ship it up. I've done that before but instead of shipping have flown down and driven back up. Cost has been less and you get the experience of the drive.
