1996 Toyota T100 SR5 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I bought my T100 SR5 4x4 used in 1999
and have put 70K on it including two
trips to CA. Very comfortable, even
for a 6'3" knuckledragger like myself.
No rust like the old days on Toyos and
the plastic doesn't crumble under use
like American trucks. The automatic
tranny is good for hauling alto I'd
prefer a stick. It has all the specs of
a Tundra without a gas-guzzling V-8 and
four doors without the price tag. Have
owned T's for 20 years and plan to
continue. Why can't the "Big Three"
make vehicles like this?
Ride is good, cab quiet. Stock radio is
ok and the damn thing holds together.
Starts fine, even in -20 weather!
Shoulder harness retraction doesn't
work well and the dealer wanted to
charge me to fix it. Should have been
a recall (probably one of ten ever done
for this truck.) Replacement parts are
