I bought the pickup at 170,000 miles less than a year ago. It has the 2.4 L 22re engine in 2wd, with a manual trans. The engine, transmission, rear end, and drive line are all original other then routine maintenance parts. (Belts, spark plugs, etc.) The pickup runs perfectly, always starts on the first try, and I know that I can depend on it. Even though it is 20 years old, the interior is pretty nice. The seats are comfortable, and have a large range of movement for different sized drivers. It is a perfect truck for anyone. May be used for tons of different functions with ease. Daily driver, farm, work, etc.
This truck is fully upgradable, lacks
power with stock intake/exhaust sytem.
Especially lacks power with 3" lift kit
with 31" or bigger tires, but can be
remedied for around $1000.00. I
presently have 140,000 miles on it and
have no major (or minor) engine leaks
or annoying sounds. The frame and body
are in great condition, especialy for
living in New England. I will never get
rid of this truck!
I have always loved Toyota trucks. This one is no different. It's my second 90, has 182k, V6 and auto. The auto stinks, but the manual version of this is a good truck. It's one of the best factory 4x4 systems I have ever used. Highly recommended. Slightly underpowered in the top end, but torque as could be in the low. Some of the best Toyota ever built! Watch out for the rust though!
