    Yep....

    This red Taco survived for 537,000 miles.
    But silver trk only made it to 41,000 before the grim reaper of frame rust took them both away.

    At 489,282 miles the engine began loosing compression. Truck is in real good condition so I decided to replace the motor and clutch and keep driving it as my work vehicle. I'm a forester so its in the woods all the time, but I am careful with it and keep it maintained. Nothing done to the engine before the replacement except change the timeing belt every hundred thousand, and the clutch that was replaced was the original clutch. Presently has 502,280 miles. Interior is in excellent shape, so is the body and the chassis. I did have the truck undercoated when I bought it in 96 from a Toyota dealer. It had 17000 miles on it and was flawless. Insurance info in the glove compartment was for someone in California.
