    I love my tacoma and she's a great truck, but I have been driving my cousins 98 short bed 5 speed manual cummins lately and I gotta say guys, I love it! I do not want to sell my taco but man that cummins is all I can think about lately. How do you guys feel about my thinking?

    My truck will probably go to my father when the time comes. Why do you recommend a long bed?

    The old Cummins was an awesome motor. Some people I know have had issues with the newer ones. If I were going to go diesel, I'd get a GMC with the Allison transmission.

    nothing wrong with loving a cummins, i love them too. id have one in a heartbeat if i needed a diesel to haul a big camper, trailer, or whatnot. unless you NEED one i wouldnt get one, maintenance on them things are wayyy expensive. especially when injectors go out. oil changes are pricey too

    to replace injectors would be 1k-1.5k
    brake change recently cost 500 for the reaer including rotors and calipers with me doing labor
    an oil change with fuel filter is about 90 bucks when you do it yourself

    love the cummins. I'd love to get an old toyota and throw a 4bt or even better a QSB 4.5 with a 6 speed ram tranny behind it.

    Have a '99 4x4 extra cab dodge w/ 5.9 diesel. edge Juice Chip. That truck will tow anything, Fast as shit, torque you would not believe. Great for anything you want to do on the street. Taco is far better manuvering and off road use. Want a tow vehicle-get a diesel- There are drawbacks to the diesel-winter warm up time, shut-off wait(programmer does this too).Unbeliveable power w/chip, 5 settings-Economy to race.
    Modifications are going to cost more. Fuel milage, and fuel prices. Although 20mpg is possible hiway--It is EXTREMELY difficlult to keep your foor off the skinny pedal on the right. My son has a Celeca GT-He was suprised how FAST and TOUGh the truck is. Bet I could OUTRUN him 1/4mi.
    SMOKEM baby
    There is also the issuse of diesel smell and fuel additives in cold weather--diesel fuel solidifies in very cold weather. Plug it in to house a/c at night. Depends on where you live.
    I SAY GET BOTH or KEEP BOTH
    Ditto on the oil changes-10+ quarts and fuel filter, oil filter. Bigger maintanace cost.
    Forget about taking it to a dealer---100+ to change the oil + filters
    I am having a difficult time trying to decide if I want to part w/91 4x4 Toyota(3"lift w/32's) . That thing is a Do all -go anywhere bruiser.
    My wife said something MUST GO.
    Good luck with your decision.
