I purchased this truck with 32k odo and now have 106k. One water pump and normal maintenance is all. The mechanic at dealership wanted to buy on the spot when changing timing belt. I cannot part with this truck. Overall, 20 - 21 mpg combined (v6, 4wd, x-cab). AC is excellent (Tx resident). V6 has plenty of power. Towing is good as long as you use draw tight hitch - towed over 5500 short distance with no problem.
Overall appearance, reliability and toughness. Love the v6 and off road capabilities. Toyota could not have made an easier truck to work on.
Front suspension does not have much down travel thus resulting in bumping cushions on a-frame. New shocks helped some but that was the way it was designed. Rear suspension seems to sag when moderately loaded (500-700 lbs). New ones have a clock and mine doesn't - my only complaint - big deal!!
