    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.
    I WANT IT.

    Toyota's afraid it'll probably just steal sales from the Taco, which will happen. But damn, imagine having 2 choices. Can't go wrong either way.

    They are both Toyotas. Why would they be afraid of stealing sales from one if they are making the sale with the other (more expensive) truck.

    I would almost bet it has to do with emissions, or a perceived small market. TW only makes up like 1% of Tacoma owners, how many of the other 99% would want a diesel.

    Not emissions but competition as Toyota America is a stand alone company. I must say though.... I grew up with those old 4 cyl diesel and 6 cyl cruiser diesels in Africa and you just can't kill and/or beat the low maintenance on those. I am very happy with my Tacoma but would definitely have taken the Hilux diesel if i had the choice.

    Because Toyota of America wants their trucks to be made in America. I think thats about all it comes down to. As far as bringing the diesel to the taco, I feel like I'm an Eclipse owner in the late 90's again wondering why Mitsubishi won't bring over the Lancer EVO. XD
