    OK!!!




    I catch LOTS of trout out of my 'boat' which is easily moved around the Northwest rivers & high lakes by my 4 cyl Tacoma.


    (BTW- Tacomas are not made to pull loads)

    I thought my pic of the kayak behind my Tacoma was witty (maybe not)



    one of the best years!

    I have the smaller 2.5L 4cyl SR5 tacoma ext cab and love it. Great gas mileage, perfect size for what I need it for, but yeah,,Tacomas do rule.

    I've considered that for my next truck for a long time. I don't imagine buying a new truck anytime soon, though. My last was a F250 quadcab SuperDuty V10...13 mpg and parking problems/low clearance on ramps was laughable for a while...'til gas prices tripled and I started doing a lot more city driving.

    I always have preferred solid front axle, but that's getting harder to find. Toyota used to make them...no longer in the small trucks.

    I dunno-most of these trucks in the photos have 'turd' or something like that on the back of them.

    <just kidding, I'm on my second Tundra...put 174K miles on the first one>

    They arent half the truck the pre '95's are. Ive got an 86 4x4 with the 22r motor and its rolling over 250 on the clock with the original motor trans transfer case and gears in front and rear.

    Just did a tune up timing chain kit and head gasket in it and its Good for another 20 years of service! Hell it still holds 90mph on the hwy in 5th gear with no down shifting...

    I always have liked Tacomas. My buddy has one and keeps it in pristine condition. I am really considering getting one for my next truck when my Silverado tuckers out.

    Yeah they do...

    As for pulling boats, mine hauls my 16' Canoe and 12' kayak just fine!

    No, The Tacoma is not made for pulling a heavy load. I don't understand why someone always pulls that argument out against small trucks. Different trucks, different purposes.

    I'm not sure why you think they aren't half the trucks of the pre-95 models. Have you owned a post 95 model?

    I've had four Toyotas: an 86, a 90, a 97 and now an 07. While they've all been great and served me extremely well my 07 is by far the best one. Oh and we're planning on getting a new '10 in the summer :supergrin:

    I have a 2007 Tacoma Double Cab 4x4. While I like the truck, I wouldn't say they rule.
