    hi all.
    currently i am commuting in a '02 highlander, wife drives a '97 landcruiser, and i keep a '96 t100 for the weekends. all 3 have over 135k on them and i love them all.

    so here's the deal. i've been thinking about getting a tacoma double cab /long bed ... can the tacoma replace the highlander and the t100, so that i can go to 2 vehicles?

    guys , for sure i want the tacoma, question is, can it replace the highlander and t100; handle the 90mile commute and weekend warrior duties so that i can get rid of the other two?

    yes its a tacoma ... the tacoma is name after tacoma washington with some of the most versital terrain in the country, its not a commuter or your weekend warrior its your new truck that does everything under the sun and still looks dam good in your drivway and even better in the mountains

    I say yes. I commute 62 miles round trip in my truck and I am comfortable in it. There is plenty of room to move and the ride is pretty good. I'm coming from a 03 Ranger to interior space and ride quality were horrible. The T100 should be able to haul more in the bed. The weight capacity on the Taco isn't very much and the rear suspension still tends to bottom out even with a slight load. Oh and that is with the spring TSB.
