People always want more and more or something different cause they are bored with their
Current setup.

You got a newer good looking truck.

22 years is pretty old for a daily driver unless you have alternate transportation. Stuff like that is for folks with money for toys.

keep your truck and buy the hilux for a project when it breaks on the trail... no way around it, old parts, no matter what the make, will break.

Is there an option of buying it but keeping your truck? It would be pretty sweet to have a hilux, defenintly not many of those cruising around.
