    Hello,
    Long time owner, first time poster. This is my 4th Toyota pickup (only vehicles I have owned since 1993). Started with an '87 reg. cab, 2.4L, 5spd 22-RE. Next, I had a 95 then 98 (both black, reg. cab, 5 spd, 2.7L). The 4-bangers didn't have the pulling power for my 6x12 trailer, so this year I made the upgrade. Here is my 2011 that I picked up in April of this year. Due to a small hole in the frame, Toyota was kind enough to hand me a check for $9K for my 1998!! This is what it looked like when I drove it off the lot.

    First weekend. At 200 miles I hooked up my buddy's trailer and headed for the woods. That is also the day I removed the useless soccer mom tires that came stock.

    This is why I opted for the V6 with the full exhaust. I trailer the trikes all over the country. This is the beginning of a trip to Indiana in June. Some minor sagging?!

    The old Sport Tent doesn't quite fit the new truck. Hence the EZ-up while camping.

    I will try to dig up some pics of my previous trucks and post them too. This site has been very helpful so far. I will, of course, be cutting my front mudflaps before I back over them. Also, need to replace the useless stock stereo (almost embarrassed for Toyota on that one).

    I plan to drive this truck for 15 years or 200,000 - whichever comes first!
    Thanks for looking. I will also post up a few other pictures in the ATV section.

    I checked it out. Pretty sweet. I might need to do the armrest mod too since I already burned a cigarette hole in mine. DOH!!!!

    I also race MX. Just a little differently than you. ATC250R.

    I got it from the Washington Auto Mall. I live very near Baierl, and work near Moon, but neither dealer had what I was looking for.

    My requirements were black, V6, and access cab. Washington had the only one in the area. It was kind of a long drive, but well worth it for the truck I wanted.
