    Hi I'm circusherse from south east missouri. new to the tacoma forums.

    I bought my 3rd toyota truck a couple months ago. A 2004 reg cab tacoma base package w/ bed liner as the only option other than a/c. 2.4l 4cyl engine really sips gas and is easy on the wallet.

    My previous truck I miss very much. a 94 land cruiser fj80. It had low miles and would go anywhere but had some electrical issues that didn't make it worth the payments or the gas bill to keep in the shop all the time. But I always wanted a Land Cruiser and still wish I had it as a toy.

    My first rig was a 95 4runner a bought off a relative for $4K. 3.o v6 4x4 and also would go anywhere and never got stuck. pulled several of my friends full size fords and chevys out of the mud with my little beat up 4runner. I tipped this truck on it's side 3 months after I got my license. It didn't kill the motor at all. it was still running on its side with oil spilling out and getting in all the wrong places. Tipped her back on her wheels put some oil in it and then drove it for 5 more years body damage and all. even spent a year in phoenix while in school and pulled a u-haul halfway across the country and nothing would kill it. til i let it get hot once and the head warped. but the tough little bastard kept on going with the addition of liquid glass to plug the head gasket. sold it to a friend who drove it for a year without fixing the head and then he sold it and I still see the thing driving around once a week at least.

    wow went kinda long there. just supporting the reliability of toyota trucks.

    so thats a lot about my toyotas (which is all i've ever owned) thanks if you read this.
