Potent fun to drive four bangers were the staple, drivers turned to JDM styles and slowly Honda started to change....what happened?
They became more concerned with their 50+ buyer instead of the younger buyers...

As far as owning a Tacoma (2nd gen), I would never get rid of it and I have had many, many cars before. In fact, I just purchased another Tacoma (1st gen). I don't think $24K for a used X-runner is bad though you can get a new one for a little bit more though if you are looking for fast, you need to look elsewhere though with enough $$$, you can make almost anything fast.
Agreed on all fronts...

I would keep the Civic, truth be told. I don't really care for the newer Civics, (I'm an 88-91 Civic/CRX guy) but in all practicality, it would be better to have. You're going to want something good on gas, and as we all know, a truck doesn't get great gas mileage- especially competed to a Civic. If you have two trucks, you'll have two gas-guzzlers and no way to cut down on what you spend in gas.

Edit: 100 posts- woot!

Going back on this topic, I looked up some 1/4 mile and 0-60 times can't remember the exact times but the civic beats the taco 0-60, taco wins 1/4 goes to the xrunner. I guess I could just get a v8 but I can't justify the 30 g for a mustang or 34 for the camaro. I'm still thinking about keeping the civic, you guys are right, I think my eyes got the best of me when I saw that xrunner!

The xrunner is awesome! My civic was cool, but like my last posts I felt like it definitely missing character, the x runner however has a lot of soul! So it shifts a little longer than the si, and is bigger, the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are very similar....I really like the comfort in there, its just right! Its fast enough, looks awesome and real comfortable to drive! Until honda can bring back something with the heritage that it had, no more honda sporty cars for me

Join http://xr-underground.com/ there is where you will find all the Xrunner guys.

I would highly recommend a short shifter since you are complaining about the shifts. TRD or URD are very good choices.

and if you have lots of money and want to go fast, drop a TRD S/C in the truck with a smaller pulley and it will put your old honda to shame. My truck will do a 0-60 in 5.2 seconds Then again I have spent a lot of money on it.
Not my truck exactly but pretty close

and if you are a good driver you can do this with a little bit of suspension mods

Op, my advice wait till somehwere around November 29th. Honda should unviel an updated 9th gen Civic around that time. If that doesnt turn out well then look into getting an 8th gen civic. Do some research at www.8thcivic.com that site is great

I used to have a RSX S and X-Runner. The RSX was nice, but the power and RWD of the X was much nicer

Good choice with the X runner! Likely going to be a VERY fun truck! It's like a new version of the S-10 Xtremes! I used to love those trucks and fantasize about dropping in an LS-1 and some Camaro wheels!

Having owned a 1990 CRX and a 2005 Civic, I think Honda really missed the boat with the newer stuff. Yeah, it's more powerful and more comfortable but, the sporty handling and the general feel of "flingability" is long gone, IMHO.

Oh well, things change. I gotta say, the 4.0L in the Taco (granted mine is a heavier, higher COG, 4x4) makes for a fun ride! My 4x4 feels a lot like my CRX did carving around the backroads so, I bet an X runner is even more fun! (Plus RWD, which adds so much to the equation!!!!!)

Anyways, congrats on your new truck purchase!

s10 xtremes are garbage. all it is, is a body kit. at least toyota did it semi-right by bracing the frame, beefing suspension and sway bars front and rear. plus x's just plain look badass


toyotas target when they were developing the X was the 350z, so they had to throw some upgrades on it

I'm not saying they were some grand thing, just that they looked sweet! At the time that they first came out, I hardly knew my ass from a hole in the ground when it came to mechanical bits! I just knew they looked sweet and that people were putting IROC clone 17" rims (clone since IROCs only came in 16" but, there was an aftermarket company that made 17") on them and LS-1's in them and they looked hot!
