    Hey folks,

    I first had a 1988 standard cab SR5 4x4 that I bought new, kept it stock, it lasted 4 years, till some guy rear ended me and totaled it. Then I purchased a new 1992 4x4 extra cab deluxe, had it for 15 years. I lifted it with a Pro Comp stage II 4in. 4.88 gears, add a leafs, BFG 33in. AT's, Snugtop cap, Warn 8000 winch along with a bunch of other goodies. That truck had seen a lot of tough Colorado trails over the years and never gave me any problems (except the rear pinion would break every 30k, but that was after market). I big time regret getting rid of it. I sold it because I needed a 4 door for the little guy, that got to big to cram into the back anymore.

    Well after straying for a bit, I have come back full circle to Toyota. I recently purchased a 2011 Silver DC TRD loaded 4x4 6spd (sorry no pics yet). I must say though that these 2nd Gens are built really cheap, the thing is literally 50% plastic along with very thin sheet metal :confused:. Unfortunately I just don't see these trucks making it 15 years, like the Toys of old. Oh well, time will tell I guess.

    Anyway, after lurking here for a little while, I figured it was time to join up. This seems like a great forum with some nice knowledgable people.

    Thanks for letting me be a part of TW.

    welcome and nice package on your truck, the double cab manuals are somewhat rare from what ive come to understand

    anyhow, a buddy of mine who has an 06 feels the same way as you do about them "not being as good as they used to" .... and is now jealous of my new t100 .... then i remind him i dont have payments either lol
