    I probably should have bought the 4 cyl. since I drive so slow, but today I was glad to have the 4.0. Some jerk in a Hummer H2, was next to me at a light with his girlfriend. He had a chromed out H2 with an aftermarket exhaust that you could feel. He kept looking at me and lurching forward... kind of gassing it with the brake on. Anyway, I tried to ignore him, but when that light turned green, he took off, and I could not resist. You know how the story turns out. Little Tacoma blows the doors off of a $60,000 pimp mobile. ...he asked for it:D

    As far as performance goes, yes. Just have the bed cover, and stuff like that. That Hummer was not stock, though. But with that much weight, I have no idea why he was trying to race me:confused: If he'd been the same guy in a Corvette, I doubt I'd be bragging...:)

    Yeah, I've seen that... But since it was a 45 mph zone, let's just say that I got to 45 a lot quicker than he did:D
    9 times out of 10, I'd let the big gas guzzler blow by me and I enjoy the fact that he's getting 9 mpg doing it, but it takes a bigger man than me to ignore a guy in a bling mobile try to impress his girlfriend at my expence... I got it out of my system ~ I won't do it again;)

    When I get my 08' or '09 with a TRD supercharger and the cat back exhaust, you won't be bragging either. :cool:

    Why would someone in an H2 even attempt to race anyone? I just don't see the point.

    You can't brag now. :D
