    Hey gang, Dan here. I had been driving a '97 Jeep Grand Cherokee since '99 and just "upgraded" to a 2001 Toyota 4Runner. Nice truck that I had to look for quite some time to find in this condition and had to drive 3-1/2 hours to pick-up. I've been doing a bunch of maintenence and upgrades(Bilsteins, springs, brakes, synthetic fluids, tune-up, etc...) over the last 2 weeks, but I think that I may have jumped a bit to soon in purchasing the 4Runner. I had been questioning whether I should buy a Tacoma or Frontier(don't flame me yet) since I haul quite a bit and have become quite creative over the years learning how to cram stuff in the back of the Jeep. I looked at everything, butthe 4Runner was such a nice truck and good deal I did it, but I think I may want a Tacoma now. I'm introducing myself here and basically admitting that I may have purchased the wrong vehicle for my current needs. I wanted to say "hello" here and then I'm going to post in the classifieds looking to see if anyone may be interested in a trade for a more family-oriented vehicle. It can't hurt to ask, right? No flames please, I did atleast ditch the Jeep to join the Toyota family.

    Thanks for reading,

    Dan
