I bought this truck after it had a new engine put in it at 112,000. I assumed that it would would be reliable, Wrong! I had to get a brand new $4,000 engine! After spending $4250 on the truck in the first place. This truck is very slow, you have to push the engine every time you accelerate from a stop light just to keep up with traffic!
Off-road capabilities, ground clearance, the exterior looks (mine has a small amount rust for its vintage). Power steering and brakes. Large load capacity, simple controls, good heater, Engine is easy to work on.
Come on Toyota, put in a engine that can actually haul the heavy truck! Since the engine is soo small, you actually get worse gas mileage because the engine has to work so hard. Forget about accelerating in 4WD.
