I have beat the shit out of mine and thus far have put an alternator and a muffler on it. Plus a free frame in 2010. 225k. i have only used it once a week to drive to work for the last 3 years, (plus any day it snows), haul wood for the woodstove and to skid logs down off my hill and it wont quit. Its in the shop now for a new door handle, another exhaust pipe, and to clean up some rust on the rockers. At some point ill get a full size truck and use the taco off road only (as a big atv). Your truck will be worth about the same 5 years from now if you can keep milage down and in good shape.
