    What, a broken down Toyota? I saw this Toyota broken down in front of the local Wal-Mart. I post this for all the Toyota homers who bash all the other American trucks.

    I like Toyota trucks, but as you see they are not bullet proof. Lets keep it real...all trucks have mechanical problems not just the Big 3.[​IMG]

    1. that's a tundra 2. Probably has a broken lower ball joint, which is avoidable with routine maintenance

    Toyota Homers??? You're on a Toyota Tacoma forum. What do you expect?? We're enthusiasts and most of us love our Toyotas because of their reliability. The big 3 have nothing on Toyotas reliability.

    I know, I know...don't feed the troll.....

    Red hot glass pack muffler dumped preaxle raptor liner bed and top rails and fenderflares and rocker panels. Hunter side steps. Plasti-dipped upper fenders and emblems. satin black spray paint here and there inside and out. 5100's set to 1.75" up front and modified zuk mod coil spring lift for about 2" in rear paired with 5100 also. C channel front bumper.
    Clearly someone was just jealous of this truck and hooked a tow strap around the front wheel and drove off. Actually, all things considered, i say its in pretty good shape.

    1st gen Tundra's had a recall for lower ball joints, because they started to crack and break over a short period of time. Looks like he never took it in...

    yup... classic lower ball joint failure on 1st gen taco's tundras and 3rd gen 4 runners.

    all because the guy probably had 200k miles on it and it was one of the few that had a bad batch of LBJ's

    That's just an obvious example of warranty-voiding mall-crawling abuse, take your truck to such places and you have to expect the consequences.

    Nah, nothing wrong with the truck. So alignment is slightly off and it tracks a little to the left but it runs like a champ.
