    So after being Toyotaless for six years, I sold my old '97 f250 diesel that never pulled more than three bikes and bought this.

    I hated it. I felt like my Dad when I was driving it.
    Then the wheel fell off. So it got fixed and lifted

    Now the little 5 lug was looking pretty good. And I love driving it, by myself.
    I have two sons, one 12 and one 9. both are really tall, the oldest one is over 6'. All three of us ride MX and woods and by the time we have the bikes on the trailer (the kx100 in the bed, yz125 and ktm300 on the trailer) and all the gas jugs,stands,tool box,cooler,gear bags loaded up the little truck is starting to sweat. Us three across the bench are sweating too cause the AC is switched off to pull the small hills on I20!

    Anyway. I still love the truck. Ive always enjoyed having a small truck, I never looked forward to driving my f250. It was more like a chore. Probably cause I drive a truck for a living. But now the older,super tall kid doesnt want to go to the track anymore. He doesnt like riding in the Green Taco. I needed to find something else.
    This caught my eye

    The sales manager was driving it and told me it was 11,000 bucks and I told him it was sold. This '02 doublecab was gonna be my 5th Toyota truck. This thing is as nice as a 10 yr old vehicle can be. It has 105k but it looks like it has 10k. I drove it to my house and made sure the kx100 could fit in the tiny bed and went back and bought it. I could already tell the 3.4 could pull my other two bikes no problem!

    So now my Wife is saying that the Green Taco must go! But they look cool together

    Your right, I once got 28mpg with those 14s on there. It still averages 23 with the lift on it.
