I'm about to purchase an 09 4x2 Prerunner V-6 4.0 Longbed. This is my first Pickup. I have owned a midsize SUV - Saturn Vue for 7 years.
I'll be using it for week day commutes, recreation and hobby travel.
If there are any members of the SCA - Society for Creative Anachronism out there - then you know what unique standards it had to meet when I was comparison shopping.
