1994 Toyota Pickup DX 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I bought this truck new. I had always wanted a 4x4 and I had a great excuse when I bought a new house with a treacherous driveway. I put about 40k on the truck in the first three years but have not put on 10k since. I have loaded this truck with a pallet of concrete blocks, yards and yards of gravel and many other things that were way over it's rated capacity. Never even made a groan. Very capable off-road. Interior comfort is as good as it could be in a small truck. Somewhere around 40k miles I think I hurt the engine off-roading and over- revving. It makes a weird rattling sound at high RPMs, but I've been driving it anyway and nothing has happened yet.
Very good transmission, strong bed and drivetrain. Ordered the plastic bed liner option and it's been great.
With the 4 cyl you get the manual hubs but I don't think I've unlocked them in a couple of years. Rear speakers would have been nice.
