Im going with the 09. The dealership with the 05 was shady. My friend showed me what they have in the 09. And ive seen the carfax, and I trust my friends work and mechanic since I hang out their alot and Ive had two other successful vehicles. And they left me use the lift and garage whenever I need.

Ahhhh, that makes more sense now. I thought the price was kind of high for a 4 banger, but 4x4 makes all the difference in price (at the expense of some gas mileage, however).

I think the 2009 is the better bet.

Just my .02 worth.

Ryan, I am from MA and now live in PA. The I4 would be a great choice if you lived in Fl like oldranger821. As you live in MA, you will find the mpg will not be very impessive with the I4. I know a few people that have the I4 around here in PA and they all said they wished they got the V6. I am not posting this for a V6 vs I4 thing, but just that the guys with the I4's are saying they eat gas going up and down all the hills and just seemed underpowered for their area. I realize not all parts of MA have hills, so maybe you'll be okay with I4. You asked in your first post for suggestions, and that is all this is. Consider the area you live in if you are buying the I4.

My mind set as like ..... a good looking and riding ride with all the right extras .... a few minor cosmetic mods .... set up as I want it.

After watching/reading this for 3 days....I think you made the right decision. I'm very happy with my 2007/I4/5spd/4x4 Access Cab.

I have little doubt you'll be happy with your decision for many years! Congrats on the new truck! Post a pic when you get it.

I agree with you Rich about the hills and where you live. Ryan, you made the right choice between the 2 Tacos IMHO. Here along the Gulf coast, it's flat as a pancake. Highest hill is 212 feet. I am originally from The Uniontown area south of you Rich. The I4 from ALL the research I have done will be fine IMHO. Just waiting for my new truck. Hopefully here by this coming Friday. Wife says I am like a kid in a candy store with a dollar bill.

Yea im pretty happy about it too, and stressed at the same time. But I know it will be a good truck. I might pay a little more a month than I do with my Xterra, but the gas bill will save me a little, and Ill have somthing I can really enjoy
