I wanted a reliable off road vechicle
that would meet all my needs. Toyota
was the obivious choice. Most of my
off roading occurs in the soft sand of
Cape Hatteras. I wanted bullet-proof
performance and I have not been
disappointed. Gas mileage is about
what I expected for my gear ratio, 14-
15 mpg in the city and 20-21mpg on the
highway. I just replaced the original
Dunlop tires with 41K miles with
Michelin Cross Terrains and the truck
feels like it is brand new again. This
was my first Toyota and it will not be
Ground clearance and solid feeling ride.
A larger gas tank! The 2000 came with
only a 18 gallon tank. What a joke!
Also a safety feature to prevent
accidental or unnoticed lowering of the
rear door glass.
