1995 Toyota T100 DX 1 Ton 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

Great truck, I've only owned for a few months, but purchased it from the original owner who kept it immaculate. Didn't know it was the 1 ton model until I got insurance. I live for off-roading and this 2wd truck is very capable. I haven't even put weight in my bed and I've never been stuck yet in the semi-soft sand of the Joshua Tree area where I live and the very soft sand of Palm Springs area that I frequent. Truck starts up every time and has over 215,000 miles on it. Plenty of power and great reliability from the 1st generation 3.4L V6, (only produced in 1995-96) also very convenient 8.2 ft bed. I've done the favor at my job to deliver a entire bunk of plywood (over 2000lbs) in my bed and a towing a pallet of cement (over 3500lbs) with ease. I've ran it on steep trails and mountain passes in the dead of summer 115 degrees with AC blasting, not even a stutter. This truck is unique, stands out everywhere I go, perfect size, not too big or too small and drives and parks like a sedan. I plan on keeping this truck for as long as possible, if you find one that's rust free in great shape like I did don't pass up the opportunity!

Review

Bought the base model in 1995 for $13,100 out the door. Only option on it was air conditioning ( a necessity in Arizona). The power output from the 4 cylinder is OK if you mate it with the 5 speed manual transmission. An automatic with the 4 Banger would probably be a dog. The fuel economy would probably suffer as well. I get about 23 to 25 miles per gallon on the freeway depending on how fast I drive (75-80 mph will get 23 mpg). city driving is 19 to 21 MPG depending on how it is loaded. The bed is full size and you can load a full sheet of 4'X8' sheet of plywood flat in the bed with no problems. I have seen trucks with a 4 door extended cab with very short (about 4.5'to 5' long) bed. I view them as overly expensive cars with more ground clearance and a big open trunk in the back that allows thieves and rainwater access to whatever you put back there. They are not really work vehicles in my book. I now have 150,000+ miles on this truck and it burns no oil and runs as good as it did when new. I have used it for all kinds of hauling jobs like wood, building materials, furniture (moved several households including my own) and it has performed yeoman service. Reliability and longevity is a big plus. There is still plenty of (original) brake pad/shoe material left to last several more years! Incredible! The T-100 was the perfect size truck for me. The current Tundra is too big, heavy and thirsty with fuel. The Tacoma is a good size but does not offer a full size bed. I don't know what I will replace it with if it ever dies on me. I bought this truck 22 years ago and have gotten more than my money's worth out of it. I am 63 now and it just might outlast me!

1995 Toyota T100 V6 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

My T100 has the 3.4 liter engine. I regularly get 20 mpg, even loaded. The only fault with it is that I had to install an aftermarket tranny cooler as the oil overheated towing in the mountains. That solved 99% of my towing problem. Great truck otherwise. I have 225k miles on it, burns no oil, runs well.

Review

I've had my TOYO 8 years now. It has 357,000 miles on it/ I have replaced the radiator, water pump, heater valve, shocks and a lower ball joint in all this time, most dependable mid sized truck ever built hands down! I train Strongman and had had literally a ton in the bed at a time and hauled a trailer and 3 atvs for 4 hrs to the mountains

Review

This has been by far the best truck i've ever owned. I've had a few dodges and fords from the same time frame or newer and there is no comparison
