It's not that I wish I had it back. I just wish I would have spent the money that I did on my 4Runner putting a solid axle under the Tacoma. Only way I'd want my Tacoma back would be if I could keep the diesel and have the Tacoma as the trail rig. But I couldn't afford that. If you're building a new vehicle for hardcore offroad, a 4 door JK Rubicon is miles ahead of a Tacoma out of the box. It's a smarter choice if you're going to build a rock machine out of a newer vehicle.

Also, my buddy with the Rubicon on 37s has started to research an engine swap. Looking like an LS1 may be the choice. Trying to get him to pick up a T56 trans to mate it to as well to get rid of the auto it has in it. Just need to figure out a doubler setup for the t-case since an Atlas is more than likely out of the question. He got a quote for the engine and labor... $12k

I honestly can't explain why I did... I can say that the build quality is not near the same as the Taco, but I have to admit... It's so much more fun to drive!

I figure I'll drive it until the first time it leaves me sitting on the side of the road out of warranty, then I'll be trading it in for another Taco.

I guess with 37s it's probably a little starved for power huh? I know the only thing I'm interested in for mine is better MPGs!

That would probably be one of two reasons I ditch my Tacoma for: better towing or better mileage. It would depend if I started driving more for work though. I would either upgrade to a 3/4 ton diesel or fix up my old truck and get a diesel car.

I'm getting 16 mpg right now, so obviously I don't care too much about mileage. I'm just looking for better towing, and comfort. I beat up my Taco too many times on the trails, and retired it too late. I'll probably wait until next year, and pick a tow rig up.

He's got 5.13s in it but yeah, it takes him a while to get to 70mph.

I could see how he would need a LS1... I think I'm sticking to the 3.73s and close to stock tires. It cruses comfortably at 70. The 3.6L Pentastar they are putting in the 2013s, besides being a POS in my opinion, gives the wranglers the power they've needed for a long time.

The 3.6 is much better than the shitty 3.8 in his 08. He was actually contemplating trading it in for a 2013. The 3.6 sucked at first when they had the head warping problem but now that that's fixed it's the engine to have in a JK. I'm hoping he goes through with the LS1. I was scared he was going to put a Hemi in it. He wants a 5.9 6BT Cummins but he isn't going to do it.
