    Hey, I really hope this is not a repost (I searched but didn't find anything) but some of you may have seen this before but I found it a pretty good read. It and excerpt from a 1995 issue of Popular Mechanics about driving the then "new" 1st gen tacoma along the Alaskan Pipeline Road or the Dalton Highway.

    I hope you guys enjoy it!

    (if it doesn't load correctly, the article starts on google page 74)
