After 5 months of experience driving this truck, I can truly say it runs better than most new cars today.
There is plenty of effortless power that comes through the 4.7 liter engine, however an extra gear would be helpful when accelerating up an onramp while towing.
Driving the truck can be wiggly on very bumpy roads, however a majority of the time it just floats down the road.
While stopping quickly from a high rate of speed, there is a noticeable shake coming from the pedal, but that is a common problem.
Overall it is a very powerful and nice riding truck, and it is much safer than other trucks from the year 2000.
The original owner bought this as a SR5 and turned it into a Limited with leather seats and all the other goodies.
I love how Toyota put the rear seat door handles in the correct place, and not in the door jamb.
Larger rear seat, more gears in the tranny (very smooth shifting as is), seatbelts that retract easier, and brighter headlights (fog lights are brighter than head lights.
More MPG than 14 city and 16 Highway
