    Thank you!!! Just hit 450 miles on the odometer lol

    Ride is really good. The tires are 10 ply so they are a little stiff on the highway but not so bad that I don’t love the new look.

    I know this is an old post but if the VIN starts with a J it is Japan built.

    A lot, or more, of 4Runners are Japan. I was told a lot of Toyota mechanics own 4Runners.

    Cutting that big hole in there hurts.

    What was the debacle? I know most of the group buys are fun to watch.

    I have a snorkel I bought off ebay for my Nissan Frontier it shipped from Australia and was way cheaper than Arb or any of the major overprice off road sellers in the US. Still debating putting it on. It really makes a vehicle stick out and I'm not sure I want the added attention.

    They do add that. I live in a place where every other car is a lifted 4x4 and my truck is very mild compared to many here. When I go to the city I get a lot more attention.

    I have no idea why a safari brand snorkel is $450, it amazes me. It is literally just some plastic. I have no reservations about buying a cheaper version.

    Sadly the only picture I still have of "the red truck"

    Granddad bought it new off the boat in 1988 (he got a discount for getting a surprise color)

    My mom traded him for it (a gold Acura integra) in the early 90's, and I got it when I turned 16, and promptly wrecked it like a dumbass. As much as I love my golf, I miss that thing everyday. 65862_1752899864746_1411083_n.jpg

    That's all good stuff. Maxtrax or Treds are an awesome tool to have on hand. Are you going to mount the Maxtrax the same way?

    I had to order a bed rail for the front of the bed. I’ll mount it across the front until I get my bed rack. Then they’ll be mounted on top of the bed rack

    I got some new shoes the other day, Cooper ST/MAXX.

    My Frontier is getting old and I'm looking for something new. 4x4 is a must and driving the Hilux for the past couple of years, I'm really leaning towards a Tacoma.
    Went and test drove a couple vehicles yesterday.

    Started at a Jeep dealer and drove a used 2013 6 speed MT Wrangler Rubicon 4 door. Had good power but felt tipsy. Inside felt cramped. Sales guy was new on the job, called today and said yesterday was a learning experience for him. Seems I knew more about his product than he did. I should've tested a new 2018/19 Wrangler - supposedly they have more room inside. Starting price on a new 4 door Wrangler was $42k!

    Went to the Toyota Dealer and test drove a Tacoma 6spd MT 2019 TRD Sport. They didn't have a TRD Offroad on the lot with a manual transmission. Not a fan of the hood scoop on the Sport as it serves no function and really takes up a lot space in the windshield = blind spot, but it drove nicely. The TRD Offroad is sold without the scoop. Also drove a 4Runner SR5 Premium. Very cushy - lots of room and handled nicely. I want a stick shift though.

    Lastly hit a Ford Dealer and drove a 2018 3.5 Ecoboost and 2018 5.0 F150. The 3.5 felt like it had more getup and go than the 5.0. Turns out the 3.5 has more torque and is the better of the 2 for towing. Hitting the gas hard on the 3.5 it pushed you into the back of your seat. Hitting the gas hard on the 5.0 it lagged searching for gears. Interiors on the F150's were cheap hard plastic everywhere. The cloth seats felt cheap as well. I like the looks of the F150 but the interior just doesn't seem worth the price of admission.

    Still need to drive a Nissan Frontier Pro4X 6 speed and a Silverado. Just to get them out of my system.

    I'm leaning towards a MT Tacoma TRD Offroad. Haven't decided on the color yet. Like the gray gywnn has but the sand color looks good too.

    It's OK, I think Tacoma is the Japanese word for Silverado.

    I had Toyota Tacomas. They are great trucks but the room in a full size truck and the ride is just so much better. My response was to his statement that he "still needed to drive a Nissan and Silverado. I wasn't trying to change the subject or forum.

    Chevy trucks are very nice as well.

    Great thread; have seen some real cool TACOs here! Nice to know I'm not the only one who has a Tacoma that is a keeper! Here's my '97, 6 cyl, auto, 4x4, 220,000+ miles and still going strong!

    I didn't think Toyota still offered a manual transmission in the Tacoma's anymore? Everything listed on their website is a automatic, or am I missing something?

    Oh yes, one of the few car makers that still offer the manual trans.
    It's an option for most packages I believe.

    The 4Runners are auto only. It's still an option for an additional cost on the Tacoma.
