This truck is amazing. Bought it a couple of years used in 1998 with 27,000 miles on it. It now has 227,000 miles and still going great. Just regular maintenance, oil changes, timing belt replacements, etc., keep it running well. Only repairs have been: head gasket replacement (a Toyota recall item right after I bought it), replaced shocks about 1 year ago, repl. front rotors about 2 months ago, repl. radiator and 3 hoses about 2 years ago, repl. front O2 sensor, repl. door straps, repl. driver side door handle about 1 month ago. It pulls my 19' boat with 150HP outboard motor on a single axle trailer with no problem (used to tow 22 footer!).
Ride is solid, smooth and quiet. Plenty of towing power for my needs. Starts reliably. 19-21mpg. I wish all new headliners were the suspended type like T100. The original seat upholstry is still good! It holds a steering alignment almost forever! The tailgate straps are solid metal, not cables.
Seat belt retractors should be a recall item. Rear brakes need to be cleaned and adjusted frequently (maybe I should R&R the rear drums and shoes). The tag lights also had to be replaced. Upgrade fuse box connectors. R&R'd sound system. Prefer metal door straps like my 1990 Camry I sold last year.
