    Kite...that looks like such a cool truck! I like the front end. How does it drive with the 4 banger? Whats the gas mileage like?

    Thanks. I just bought the truck and haven't put a whole tank through so I'm not sure about the gas mileage. The 4 banger seems to have enough power, cruises fine at 80mph and is not to sluggish off the line (with the 5spd). I test drove a few 4.0Ls and liked the power but the initial purchase price and gas bill savings is what got me the 4cyl.

    Nice buy! Looks really aggressive already for being a 4cyl right out of the dealer!
    If you want more power down the line, you should turbocharge :p

    Wanted to post some pix of my shell...

    It is really convenient, but I feel that it takes a lot of the sportiness away from me taco...

    Yes no?

    IMO, with a lift, the shells add some sportiness...
