I juuust about have the wife convinced on a new Taco. Really wanted the Tundra for the extra room and power but this will be my daily driver and small hauler without the added fuel bill. I have the F250 for the gooseneck and tractor hauling.

Will more than likely settle on SR5. Any major differences between the trim models? Toyota isnít really known for creature comforts, so i was curious about where the extra cost is going besides maybe suspension on the TRD.

Just installed a set of sumo springs in the rear. This is to help with all the weight I have in and on top of my bed. It replaces the bump stops.

Can't buy a 4x4 Tacoma now...Just none out there. The ones you see on dealership websites are sold before they post them. I'm told almost everyone coming in next month is already spoken for and deposit put down.

That's about my luck..Actually trying to buy one and spend money for once. LOL

Got both Rotopax mounts and my 3 gallon gas can, 2 gallon water can should be in this week. Also got a pretty advanced first aid kit. Give us more confidence about being alone for several days at a time.

I'm not too worried about the engine and tranny on my daughter's 2014 4Runner. But, **** everything else is totally sub par. She will probably purchase another one after she is done with Med School. But, I myself will not purchase a Toyota product again. Cheap door lock actuators (every single one of the has had to be replaced and one twice all at 65k or less), back louver above class about to fall off, radio crapped out, seat motors, etc.

Have fun in BB. I was there last week. The Chisos Road has construction and is closed at different hours. Lot of activity out there with illegal crossings and campsite thefts if you are camping near the river. The NPS employee told me to carry a gun if I had a permit.

Just upgraded Mrs from 2001 Taco to 2012 Tundra. It is really sharp. Right now, it is getting new carrier bearing install under warranty, hope to have it back in the next day or two. Makes an awful sound sometimes, like driving over a rumble strip.

Pet Kid inherited the Taco.

I'm hearing 2 engine choices. Hybrid with a V6 and a twin turbo V6. No option for a V8. It has marker lights on the tailgate, which are required for anything over 80" wide.

I was pricing SxS's and decided to get a 4wd 3rd Gen 4runner instead. It was cheaper...a lot cheaper. I can drive it to my property, hunt out of it and then drive it back home. I don't think I have 5k invested in it, pulled a spare motor (5vz-fe) from the junkyard for whenever this one dies. That was another $600. I do need a truck for towing but there's no way I'm paying new truck prices right now for a tow rig.

I have a TRD Premium 4Runner and a new F350 Powerstroke. The 4Runner gets driven 90% of the time. I’d never be without a truck, but I enjoy the 4Runner so much more. (And no…..the 4Runner is not a truck no matter what kind of logic you try to apply. It’s a SUV.)

My new Tacoma finally came in. Didn't do too bad. My old Tacoma ended up costing less than $200 month total. It was a 2013 with 88.6k hard miles on it (was ranch work truck and did tons of towing) Gave me almost 22k total trade in value for it. And I got almost 8% off MSRP for this new one. Couldn't pass it up!



Put in to work right away with just 18 miles on it
