    I just purchased a 2010 Tacoma SR5 4X4. Traded a 2006 Ford Ranger XLT 4X4. There is absolutely no comparison between the two vehicles. I am very impressed with the Tacoma. Now about me. I am a retired (37 years) gas and electric utility worker . I am also a retired (32 years) CSM from the Army Reserve. My other interests are my 32 Ford 2 dr sedan street rod, Lionel trains and my 4 grandchildren. Looking forward to seeing how the Tacoma handles the snow in upstate New York this winter. I am also interested in having my fog lights working all of the time and making the modifications to my Sat Capable radio to handle a Sirius membership. Looking forward to reading a lot on this site BUT not posting a lot.

    Welcome! My Tacoma laughs at upstate NY winters! I haven't had a storm here yet that keeps me off the road. I do find that adding some sand bags to the bed for weight on the rear axles make it handle much better in snow.

    Welcome from Syracuse... I second the sandbag idea... you'll need to experiment to get the right combo of traction and gas mileage...
