I've owned my truck for 11 years.
I will take this truck to the grave with me. Over the 11 years, the truck has taken great care of me, and I have taken great care of it.
Yes, I've replaced a few items that have failed, but the truck is 15 years old. Biggest expense was replacing full exhuast system last month.
This truck has a perfect balance of everything: looks, size, reliability, and performance.
I haul heavy materials and motorcycles in the bed and the truck never misses a beat.
I'd have to spend $40K on a new truck to get what I get from my truck, and I could never justify that.
I paid $15K with 50,000 miles on it.
11 years later, I have 127,000.
Still going strong.

Built proof, reliable, near perfect...I bought a '98 SR5 4x4 in 2002 with around 25k on it. I have driven it as my primary vehicle (commuter, highway, hunting and camping) for nearly 14 years. The truck has 155k on it now. I have done regular maintainance and a few minor repairs (small wiring issue at around 70k), nearly no issues.
The motor lacks power, put it serves most purposes other than towing. I love this truck. If you find one with less than 150k, buy it. I can't wait to give it to my daughter and she is only 5. I know it will still be around.

So I bought this truck for going to dump and beach on cape cod. It had 98,000 miles . 2 owners All original body etc. I now have a whopping 105,000 miles on ten years later and park it in a garage all winter with a trickle charge. In ten years I have done regular oil changes, replaced two tires and one battery. Thats it. Thing always starts are goes in the spring. Paint looks great. It is solid and fun to drive. Im teaching my kids to drive standard on it so we'll see if the clutch holds out. I don't see any reason I wouldn't have this truck for another 10 years.
