    Yes, its true. I haven't even driven it in WELL over a month.

    I got it in a REALLY good trade deal and at first thought it was very cool. Now I'm embarrassed to say its mine.

    Its an '01 Xcab on bags. The bag setup is neat and all, but the novelty wears off very quickly for someone who likes 4x4's, ATV's, hauling stuff, and fast cars. This truck does nothing well. At all. Even if it wanted to.

    I don't even know what the point of this thread is, I want to sell the truck but no one seems to be interested.

    Is there a way I can convert BACK to a factory style suspension setup? So I can at least HAUL something with this? Can someone post pics of factory undercarriages for me? The rear is a full 4-link and its all welded up and whatnot.

    The more I think about it, the more I realize that even if I did the suspension swap its still probably a waste of my money.

    Anyone want to trade me a beat up Toyota (that is still functional) for my '01?

    I don't see the title needing any explanation really. I just do not like my truck and I needed to rant, lol.

    There was no being ripped off here. Hell, its still an '01 with 112k miles on it. The truck is pretty much fine as far as the mechanicals are concerned, its just not my style.

    Not trying to hate on the low riders.... well kinda except the X-runner i like those. But everytime i see one of them most of the time they look like shit. A truck isn't designed to be on the ground its designed to have ground clearance. I saw a low rider silverado with a browning sticker on his back window i couldnt stop laughing... what an oxymoron it was.

    Nope....No...I'm pretty sure if you traded anything for it you got screwed- especially if it's "not your style"

    WTF would posses you trade for something like that when you like "atvs and 4x4s and...."
