    I have the opportunity to buy an 89 hilux 2.8L turbo diesel with approx. 150,xxx km [​IMG]

    and then I would sell my 2004 tacoma 2.7L with 133,xxx miles ( 214,xxx km)

    thoughts?

    should I buy?

    People always want more and more or something different cause they are bored with their
    Current setup.

    You got a newer good looking truck.

    everything has been done on it...you name it it's done...elocker, new turbo, upgraded internal engine parts
    even with the low km for the year you would pass it up?

    22 years is pretty old for a daily driver unless you have alternate transportation. Stuff like that is for folks with money for toys.

    keep your truck and buy the hilux for a project when it breaks on the trail... no way around it, old parts, no matter what the make, will break.

    Is there an option of buying it but keeping your truck? It would be pretty sweet to have a hilux, defenintly not many of those cruising around.
