1993 Toyota Pickup Deluxe V6 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
Bought 4 months ago with 150K miles for $3,800 in moderate-good condition. It had some surface rust, burns a bit of oil, but the engine sounded/is strong and so is the tranny, transfer case, and diff. I did a tune up when I bought it, put it on castrol with lucas stabilizer, put in a centerforce clutch, new axles, and this truck is so fun to go off-road in. I just need a suspension lift kit and some a/t tires, and this thing will be damn near indestructible!! The 4wd gears work very well, the low range 4wd puts out lots of torque!
You have to have this truck in 4wd.
Fuel economy, I get about 18.6 mpg as a daily work truck, city/hwy combo. I carry about 800 lbs. of cargo in tools and plumbing materials for work at all times. Well, considering this, I guess its not that bad. Used to have the 4 cyl. Version in single cab and got used to 26 mpg with 500 lbs. load.
