    So after a ton of money, fun, trips galore, and the wife almost crapping her pants on some trail rides I traded in my Jeep Rubicon Unlimited for a 2010 Tacoma DC Offroad with 20k miles in stonewhite. Straight across trade, only payed the dealer $500 for an 80k mile warranty.

    I dont have any stock photos because the day I brought the Tacoma home I traded a set of Nitto 37's that were for the jeep to a buddy for his motometal wheels, procomp tires, magnaflow exhaust, revtech lift and TRD cold air intake.

    Was that an even trade? I thought Rubicons were pretty pricey?

    Welcome to the "other side". I did this about 6 months ago. Traded in my 07 JKU with many mods for a 2011 TRD Offroad DC. Loved the JK and was extremely capable. The only things I miss...
    1. Solid front axle
    2. Departure Angle

    Other than that the TRD Offroad is very amazing. I have put it to the test several times in the 6 months I have owned it.

    Enjoy the better gas mileage and sports car like interior

    Where is the OP? So many questions. Personally I love the Jeep he's got. Yes they are pricey. Kinda surprised about the even trade. Although that Tacoma is also very nice. 4X4 even. I saw the Call of Duty Jeep Wrangle at the auto show and fell in love. Considering I'm not a big fan of Jeeps, if money were not an issue and wanted a toy for fun, I'd consider this model here.

    I love my Taco as well but why is a trade from a Jeep to a taco a step up. Especially from a rubicon. The tacoma cant be more capable can it? Just wondering.

    Exactly. That Rubicon is far superior for any off road application. Period.....

    yeah, it wasnt a rubicon, but for the money i saved not getting a rubicon, i got new gears and lockers put in. Other than that quick dis. swaybars. it might as well be a rubi-clone!!! Id say that yes, jeeps are great off road machines. but i dont wheel as much as i did. so the tacoma is definately better. I need the bed to do certain things, plus the ride on the jeep got rough after the 5.5" lift and 37's. That pic was with 35's
