I have had 5 Toyota trucks since 1985, 2-4x4s, 2-2wd's and 1-preunner. I currently have a 2001 4x4 2.7 ltr and a 2005 prerunner with the 4.0 V-6. their model yrs. where and are 85,88,93,01, and 05. While they are still good trucks, it seems as though the ones designed and built in Japan were just a bit better quality. I don't know...maybe it's just me?
PS. I wouldn't keep buying them If I thought they were junk, this is just an observation
