This is a great truck, despite the fact that the bed isn't quite 8' long. I carry hay, horse feed, fencing, manure, firewood and building supplies and pull a 2 horse trailer without any problems. My biggest complaint is its inability to move forward in heavy gravel or on any kind of slippery surface (mud), even with a load. The configuration of the back doors is awful! You have to play musical doors to put groceries in the back seat. No leg room for adults in back seat. This model came with Tacoma brakes, which created problems. Dealer installed Land Cruiser brakes at no charge. 75K miles to date, no mechanical problems, and 18 to 22 mpg with a soft foot and summer tires!
Comfortable - it rides more like a car than a truck. Handles well on corners and over bumpy roads, especially when there's a full load in the bed.
Well, they've fixed the problem with the back doors and the leg room in the back seat.
