I sold my 01 for 3800 with 250,000 miles and I thought the frame was in great shape as it was replaced in 2010. The new owner found a substantial frame crack that needed patched and welded between the cab and bed on the passenger side of the vehicle. He only found it because he stripped the entire frame and was repainting it. He spent 15 grand restoring the thing and jacking it up, I was glad to see it get another life extensionall three in my family including mine had rotted frames. they bought mine back though.
Nice bed liner. How wide? 🦌Here is a 93 Toy reg cab 5 speed 4 banger I had. Was a great little truck
that would climb like a billy goat.

I need to be able to tow, & would have bought a tundra pro in 2020 had the diffs locked. So i gave chevy trailboss a go, so far so goodI absolutely love my 2010 regular cab, 4WD, 4 cal, 5 speed manual until yesterday when some &^%$stick totaled it.220,000 miles and never had to do anything to it myself except when I broke an axle piece on a blinded highway hole at 75mph. Dealer kept up with every recall..new headlights at 5yrs, new frame couple years ago. Oh - I did just replace a dashboard lamp myself...LOL. I did all the transmission, differential and transfer case oil changes myself since they want an arm and a leg to do it at Toyota but even my fat arse fit under it. I have dealer do the oil changes while they look at every thing and rotate my tires for me
The 4cyl did suck on hills while running AC since it was light on HP so I looking forward to a 6cyl with a decent suspension and the extra head/feet room as the newer models are bigger than the 2nd Gen.
I had planned my next Taco to be a Limited for a "cadillac" version while keeping my 2010 for hunting and hauling. But now...I'm looking at the 2022 TRD Off Road. I'd love the TRD Pro but can go up to $60k with all the extra bells. I want the double cab and was going to settle for for the smaller bed but now may pay for the full sized.
I won't buy anything but Toyota now and only Tacoma for me. Bought wife a 2006 Camry and now she owns the 2021 RAV4.
Service from Dealer is outstanding.
99 4runner 3.4L v6.What year model and engine?
We’ve got a 2004 Camry sittting on 200k, but getting over 300k out of it would be nice.
I have had just about every tacoma made. The last one was a 2015 trd offroad v6. An i cirrenty have a 2018 trd sport 4x4 i bought new with cash. There good trucks. The 2016s and 2017s had some transmission shifting complaints. But you never hear of any failures. My 2018 has been solid as they come. Its got 60k miles on it now. Running good. My wife has a 2018 4runner thats just on another level. There great trucks too. Both get about 18-20mpg. The tacoma is quicker and feels more nimble then the 4runner. My truck is stock with good wheels and tires on it. If you lift a tacoma you will have to replace the needle bearing at some point. An gas mileage will tank. I have build a dozen tacomas too. Everything from rough country lift kits to 10k doller long travel lifts. I like stock now days. They go great on and offroad for what they are. They also have great resale. I hunt and enjoy my tacoma. I have a duramax for work and farm.What do you guys that drive them think of them? I am about dead set on getting a used SR45 4X4 model whenever my current vehicle breaks down (currently driving a honda sedan). I just don't want a huge truck, and I really think that it is all the truck I will need for the time being. What kind of milage are you guys getting? How is the composite bed liner holding up? Anything else you guys wish you had added?
Toyota has a huge presence in ky, but really wish they made Tacoma's and tundras here. I used my tacoma like a side by side for hunting and firewood collecting. I like my trailboss but it aint got shit on my old tacoma off rd.I can't believe so many on here are Toyota fans!
I neglected to add that my wife drives a 2018 RAV4 already 119,000 miles on it. Ain't even burn out a light bub, but I DID Shoot the Mirror Color Cover off of it one night. SHE sure was happy with me over That. I glued it back together and the remote still works.I bought a new Nissan frontier 4x4 a few years ago. Extended cab? It's got 2 small suicide doors and a 6 ft bed.
I was looking for a used Toyota or Nissan and they were either Junk or higher than the new ones.
No problems with it at all and I like it. You aren't going to get great mileage on any these 4WD trucks ...
Maybe you should check out a Lectric Truck??
