This is the nicest pickup I've ever
driven and really enjoy driving it. I
just wish I could afford to drive it
more. It gets real bad gas mileage
(16mpg) is the best I've achieved so
far. I'm guessing Toyota put the 4.08
rearend in it to compensate for the
less horsepower than the competition.
They could have improved this by
putting more horses in the motor (I've
seen the racing cars, I know they can)
then put a 3.50-3.73 rear in it. If I
were pulling something big I wouldn't
have bought it, I would have gone
diesel. They aren't catering to their
buyers. It does what I wanted just the
mileage is sad.
Toyota reliability, the reason I still
love it anyway.
As I've already stated, give it some
more horses, then change that rearend
ratio to something more roadworthy.
