    I really love that blue... its so awesome.. but was a little afraid of it... thought I might get tired of it after a few weeks... so I went with what I was familiar with... siliver... it doesn't show dirt.

    Love that blue! Great looking truck !

    check it out drive it first then stop and open your hood, its coming from the right side of the engine and sounds like it needs valve adjustment.

    Toyota truck engines have been ticking for years... its normal.

    My 97 4Runner has been ticking for the last 230,000 miles of use.

    no worries

    I don't have the ticking either but i know lots of people with my model do and dont have any problems. From what i understand it's normal and there's no need to worry
