The 2WD Tacoma has been a great truck and I plan to keep it forever as a work truck (landscaping, hauling, etc.).
The extra cab was great when my son was young, providing extra seating capacity. The extra storage behind the seat has been great. The V6 is quick and the engine has been very reliable, with only a starter change - no other mechanical needs.
