    Well go buy it. From my experience they are crap. A friend's dad had one. Everything rattled from day one when he picked it up new. Not sure what other problems he had but he was more than happy to get rid of it. I almost bought one myself but they are just shitty trucks. V8 and moonroof you say?:jerkoff:

    I don't know, i would have to do a allot more research before i would even consider the move to a different truck. It just really irks me how far behind the curve toyota is falling. I just my Taco to where i like it, but with the lift it just killed the power on it. The real problem lies in the fact that i cannot drive my hotrod in the winter, so have to compensate for lack of hp. Need for speed man.

    Yeah Toyota used them on the pick-ups up till '95. Nissan went away from them a few years later.

    lol 41 is old? You don't need to be hot roddin then sir :rofl: If your considering swapping the yota for the colorado look into it a good bit (I know you will) it seems smaller on the inside. I don't know the measurements but I would like to see a side by side comparison I am pretty sure the tacoma dwarfs it...
