    Always wanted a Toyota truck. Look great, perform great and last a hell of a lot longer than other trucks.

    Coming from a 2011 WRX Hatch with AWD, 320hp and 355tq this is a huge change. (Currently selling the aftermarket parts that were on the car to finance the parts for this truck).

    I flew from Socal and picked up the taco on May 12th in Fort Worth Texas. Drove 20hrs solo but really got to know the truck and it's features. Of course I had to stop a few times to test out it's off road capabilities.

    Only con with the truck is the gas mileage. On the two day trip back from Texas and all highway miles the truck gets 18mpg. That's with me driving like a 87yrld woman that can't see over the steering wheel.

    Happy wheeling!

    18 is my average on the highway too. 19 if I am going downhill... Totally worth it, though!
