I've always owned gmc z71's but I'm tired of them and am wanting to try something new out. I like the looks of the taco as but have never drove one. I'm looking to buy new and I want the 4 door 4x4 fully loaded out with all the bells and whistles.
My question is how do these compare to larger v8 pickups. I don't want to feel like I'm lacking power or that I don't have enough ump to play around in. I've had bad reliability issues out of my last few gmc's ( 1999,2002,2011,& 2009 models)all z71's and all breaking down. I am not a rough off-roader the hardest I go off-road is to a deer stand or fishin hole. So just wanting comparisons in pretty much any way u can..
I'm also going to put a lift and off-rad tires (like mud grapplers) and rims on it and was wondering how bad that will hurt the v6? And wat other mods I should consider.
