This truck has been a disappointment.
Toyota quality is all but absent.
Granted it is the first model year,
but it has far too many shortcomings.
Overall quality is poor. The interior
has squeaked and rattled since it was
new. The suspension squeaks, chirps,
and rattles. Teeth break off the
spider gears in the rear end. Axle
seals blow for no apparent reason. The
transmission shifts hard into 3rd
gear. Fuel milage and crusing range is
unimpressive, After 4 years, toyota
has still not solved the
brake problem. The 4wd system is
failure-prone. I cannot recommend this
box frame instead of c-channel, better
quality hardware, better tires, larger
engine, better MPG, better brakes,
rear disc brakes, better battery,
better quality interior, real 3/4 and
1 ton versions.
