    Actually, when I supercharged my 2000, My mpg only went down by 1 mpg. Went from 22.5 to 21.5 average. That would be great to meet up! My e-mail:

    Amazing!! You must drive like you have an egg between your right foot and the gas pedal. And you can take that as a compliment, 'cause that's what it is!

    I'll pass on cardboard and trust that I locate real ones one day soon. What I find rather amazing is how many lifted trucks are running around WITHOUT mud flaps, especially when Arizona requires them on any vehicle lifted over stock height. Cops don't seem to pay any attention, and apparently don't care unless they get their panties in a twist over the way someone is driving, and then I'm sure they'd add "no mud flaps" to whatever the charges are just because they can!

    I looked at the TTORA classifieds and didn't find a thing, and on Craigslist as well. Got some trucks only and Toyota only wrecking yard numbers to call on Monday, so we'll see how it goes..

    Love them Toyota fours! Three of my earlier trucks were four bangers, the first two being the smaller earlier pickups, and the next being a 2.7L - an engine I really liked for gas mileage as well as for power.

    Since then my last two Tacomas, both Gen 1's, have run the 3.4L V6 with an automatic behind them. My '98 V6 ext cab, which I sold about a month ago with only 94k on it, consistently delivered better than a 20mpg average, and so far the '03 double cab I replaced it with does about the same.

    I intend to get away from the Valley and head north for a couple of weeks in the near future, so I'll have a better chance to see what I get mileage wise on the road at highway speeds. If it's as good as my '98 was on the highway that will make me happy, and I can't see any reason it shouldn't be!
