    But, I agree, you can’t really hand the keys to a powerful car to a young teen and expect immediate compliance. The big problems in teen driving imo, is peer pressure from the riders or willingness to “ show off.” Geeeze, it’s just as much a problem with adult drivers. This maybe the underlying reason the new last gen Taco is such a dog. It’s sufficient.

    I hear you, even in jest.
    Be prepared for the onslaught of unibody “ trucks” from Subaru and others. Regardless of their limitations, these vehicles perform 90% of the tasks that most Taco owners ask their trucks to do. Their uses overlap dramatically.

    I forgot to mention I work in a Prison, no fear here, I work central control so I can have my truck under surveilance, and have an armed officer there in under 30 seconds.. I taught her in an empty parking lot.. simple turns, parking in a lined space, backing up.. judging distance front of hood, back of bed.. she has her learners permit now... and I believe she has her hours to go for her test now.. she wouldnt dare steal my truck...

    I hope you're referring to that Demello bumper and not his teenage daughter...

    Sure.

    It's just a truck.

    It's insured.

    They are responsible adults, older than many folks around here. (not that age and responsibility always correlate)
