    I had a super long bed 2wd Xtra Cab, once upon a time , it almost seems like that vehicle had more power than this current one.
    I have signed on to this forum in hopes that there are folks here who have specific knowledge on how to extract more power, while maintaining fuel economy. Those were my excuses behind the purchase of this vehicle. And a functional air conditioner too(which just about kills it). It is fast enough to get a speeding ticket, as I have already found. Even with a 260lb load ! That will be another thing I am interested in improving, which is payload capacity. 1/2 ton my arse ! :confused: Baby wheels, coupled with undersprung suspension, leaves alot to be desired. Good thing, I have an actual truck to haul with ... there, now I have a place to start my research :D
    I bought this vehicle pre-owned, with just over 13K on the odo. Its kinda like a Harley. It only does what it was designed to do, and doesn't look too awful. Gee,Harleys are under suspended too ... but they are decent "investments", like Toyota vehicles ... thanx for havin me, let the work begin !
