Getting bored with the Tacoma

I've had my 06 TRD Sport for about 2 1/2 years now and I know I really should keep it. I'm just really bored with it. I will post what may be a few parting pictures tomorrow. I really need some motivation to keep it. I need the towing and the space, please help keep me from the awful SUV's.

Sell it then! Go buy an Expedition or Excursion (sp) and cry when you have to pay $150 to fill the tank. The resale value is great on a 2006 and they can't sell those suckers.

You'll never know what you have until it's gone, we are just trying to tell you now, you have the best truck, find another toy or hobby to put your boredom into.

If you've got the R32 then you've already got your fun! I traded my GLI for a Tacoma this week... and I already miss it. If you're lucky enough to have both and are still bored, maybe you should drive the R32 a little more...

Trust me and keep the Tacoma! I bought my first Tacoma which was a new 2005 white SR5 access cab 4wd when the first came out in 2005. I put about 55,000 miles on the truck in 2 years and I thought a Camry would be a wise choice. I thought I didn't need a truck and could get much better gas mileage on a camry. While the Camry did get great gas mileage I was missing the Tacoma less than a month after buying the Camry. I had the new camry 10 months and decided and of course last month I had to buy another new Tacoma. I bought a new 2008 double cab TRD Sport and I am going to make the wise choice and keep this truck for many years to come!

Like someone else has said, supercharge that baby, toss on a good exhaust, and you'll be putting down the same horses as a V8

i was bored once=big mistake

hey,to all ,if you get bored with your tacoma don,t do what i did a few years back,had a tacoma 2005 with a manual tranny in it ,got stuck in a bad traffic jam one day and decided i was tired of shifting, so one weekend i went and traded it in on a 2006 hyundai sante fe with the 3.5 liter gas hog that hyundai says you will get 23 mpg highway,well how about 18 mpg,had it back 3 times and couldnt fine a thing wrong so they came up with the driving style being the problem,so i really sat down and though to myself you know you owned toyota trucks most of your life and loved each and everyone of them what the hell was i thinking in the traffic jam that day,carbon monoxide poisoning i guess made me think stupid,well i am back in the saddle again, i bought a 2008 taco access cab 4x4 with a 2.7 liter manual tranny,ooo i also am carrying a gas mask in my truck for when i get caught in traffic jams from now on .to all you taco fans out there,i am 54 years of age and hope to still be driving this truck when i am retired

Your already making as much HP as a v8.
Sold my 02 Dodge Ram w/ the 360 engne and was surprised that my new Tacoma makes more HP. That Dodge was a dog on the hwy, and wouldn't get out of its own way. Might be because it weighed as much as 2 Tacoma's.

It's safe to say that most folks who bought a Tacoma (including you?) have done so after suffering through the cost and frustration of their previous vehicle choices. People who own Tacomas are generally envied by the very people who own the vehicles you're considering! The grass is green right under your feet my friend.

Supercharger, 12 inch lift with 45" Tires, Big old grill guard, and a machine gun turret mounted in the back bed for hunting, then you can be the biggest meanest badest son of a motha motha that ever drove around on the face of this earth!

That's an accurate assumption. I'm a long time Ford guy but owned an '05 Altima prior to the Tacoma. First, I wanted to get back into a truck. Second, I was sick of all the problems I had with the Altima (covered under warranty, though). So I made the decision to go with Toyota for the first time last summer and here I am, very happy with decision.

No, the grass is not always greener on the other side. Sometimes the grass is trampled by the bad vehicle decisions of people like myself.

I really just want something a little bit nicer, maybe a few more creature comforts. I will not be buying anything American, I am somewhat sorry to say. I attached a picture and I already have a Borla exhaust. I also have thought about a supercharger, but it wont make the truck any more comfortable. I did go and test drive a VW Touareg today, to bad I cant afford the V10 Turbo Diesel w/ 553 ft/lbs for 72K. I had an 03 Tacoma and I thought that was a MUCH better truck. Anyone have any good ideas of a midsize SUV that can still go offroad and tow?
