Yup...I agree. That was one of the most reliable and trouble free trucks I have ever owned.

That is awesome, how is it supported once it is open? How much weight can it hold?

You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Very nice! I own a 1992 Toyota 4x4 and it still runs pretty darn good for being almost 20 years old. I'm sure it would run even better if I would take the time to get it tuned up again. It has well over 350,000 miles on it too. I think you will be happy with the reliability of that truck. :D

Most guys put snorkels on their rigs for the looks, not that that's the case here. I'm just sayin..

I'm not bashing you for ptting the snorkel on just stating the facts. Remember that you need to seal your electrical system before doing a water crossing that is deep enough to need that snorkel and make sure the breather tubes for your diff is extended up high enough.

I don't have a snorkle, and I've got pics of my Tacoma in water over the hood. As long as you keep moving, you don't need to get made fun of.

The 32 x 11.50 are the same as stock just wider so my mileage is Ok as long as im nice to the peddle 65/17.5mpg 75/16.0mpg 80plus/15mpg,the bed is strong the only thing is when me and my wife go camping you can fill when each other moves around (makes the hole truck move)3.4 v6 its good power not great!!!!

I can't accurately get my mileage because my odometer was never recalibrated for the 33's, but with the lift, bumpers, and the rack, I think I'm lucky to be getting 11 mpg. IT SUCKS up the gas.
