    To the wifes brothers house we went.
    First real road trip in the taco. 8 hour drive, 120 pounds of sandbags in the back. dedicated snow tires. hit a snowstorm in Eau Claire WI. the taco handled it like a champ. saw about a dozen cars in the ditch, but not me. It was awesome. right lane of the highways was fine, left lane was snow covered for the most part. But like I said, the taco handled it all and took it in stride. I was pretty impressed. Wasn't as impressed with the mpg's, but hey it's a truck right, you don't buy a truck for gas mileage. For what it's worth, I got about 20mpg on the highway.

    I've been very impressed with the performance of my tacoma in the ice and snow as well.

    Brand new and bone stock with many plans...
    I'm all over road trips in my Taco... I've had it since 2 Oct this year and I'm already over 10K!! Wifey and I even drove to FL from the WV panhandle The trip back was straight through. 16 hours!!! I'm guessing I was around 20-22 MPG's. Might have been better had I kept my foot out of the throttle body. I was cruising around 75-80 the whole way. :D

    Good times!!
