This truck is as fun to drive today as the day I bought it. It has plenty of power, amazing handling, great 4x4 features and capability, and it very comfortable. Reliability has been great so far, and the interior and exterior hold up well to the elements. It's a great looking truck, and I frequently get compliments on it.
The fully boxed frame really makes this a "truck". Other great features are the 4-wheel disk brakes, metal box (Tacoma uses composite), utilitrak tie down system, and the locking tailgate.
The only improvement I would make on this truck is with the tires. The stock tires don't impress me to much. But tires can be changed.
