    Hi folks .... almost a year ago I got a 01 PreRunner, access cab, 80k miles, 4 cyl. very good shape. I took about a yr. in looking for this truck. I started out test driving Frontiers, then Toyos. I liked the 01 body styling
    and test drove the v6 and 4x4 trd. I then took a hard look at how much off roading I would be doing compared to a everyday driver. Without driving a long distance the only challenge around here is sugar sand and old boat ramps, I'm used to both of them in 2 wheel drive.

    I have a summer place down in Belize I get to a couple of months a yr. and shipped down my '90 Range Rover, that's where I get to play in the mud and break some stuff up. ( just driving from one village to another
    is off-road ), or I should say the "roads" at best are connected pot-holes.

    Great Forum...looking forward to being a part of it
