Finally did it

Have wanted a Tacoma for a long time. Imagine this work forced me to do it. I have a 2005 F150 and the gas is killing. Its the story I told my wife and I'm sticking to it. Any way picked up a 97 reg cab 2.7MT. AND I LOVE IT! Needs some work but so do I. 3in susp 3in body with 33x12.5x15 bckshot mudders. "Shot" being a key word. Goes Tuesday for some BF KOs 33x10.5x15 this time. 300 mile commute every week. Taking all comments and suggestions.

Good luck with that elusive 25mpg.

I like the truck though, miss my old 95.5 regular cab.

Ok. So maybe 25mpg is way off, but I have the fun part covered big time.

Drove it to work this am. First time on the interstate with it. As far as I'm concerned it drove like a dream. I had my own expctations and they were exceded. New BFGs probably didn't hurt though.
