    If you are reasonably happy with your 4R, I'd keep it. There is a cost to trading, if nothing else have to pay taxes/title on the new purchase, which in the state of NE is ~8.5% of net purchase price.

    The key points for the Taco are truck bed, available in a manual, and superior tow capacity. I tow a 3000+ lb camper and would not want to stress the vehicle any more than that--the Taco gets the job done, but it's work. I imagine the 4R would really drag towing something that weight. Also personally I like the look and interior styling of the Tacoma better. (Although when I see one of those Storm Trooper 4R's I get a bit envious.)

    I haven't seriously priced a 4R, but it seems to me to get the same trim and options one has to spend quite a bit more. For instance, the 4R OR starts at $38,400.

    Having said all that, if you want a real truck and especially with a manual, you'll want the Tacoma.

    I think, brother, we gotta settle this with good old fist-fight. PM me for a location. Come alone.

    And yeah......the fist-fight is on hot coals with your good hand tied behind your back....like last time we had an argument of this depth and importance.

    I guess we are both on the west coast. Meet me half way?

    You should take my bet! It would be far more satisfying than simply punching you in the mouth. And no one gets hurt, no charges laid. Much more civilized!

    And I thought Canadians were the civil ones.

    Too much sugar in those Tim Horton’s perhaps.

    As I’ve said before, Tacoma guys know how to get shit done with their underpowered, unloved, but awesome trucks. 4Runner guys like to touch themselves each morning, thinking about their classic 5-Speed trannies, while surfing Craigslist for used trailers.

    If the Tacoma was a band:

    If the 4Runner was a band:

    Both are arguably good bands.

    Keep the 4Runner if you dont plan on using the bed like a truck. The 4Runner can tow just find too. You should change the shitty stock tires to a good AT tire. That will solve your braking problem.

    South Park had an episode about 4runner owners, they just incorrectly made them all look like Prius's.

    Just curious, how does one "liberally" regurgitate a word?

    And as a side-note, anyone calling a 4Runner "refined" is nuts. I'd argue that vehicle's biggest weakness is its plain-ass interior compared to similar sized and priced SUVs.

    I like the senior citizen size of every button inside the 4runner. If you have to squint to see the road, at least you shouldn't have to squint to see defrost.

    By using the same word over and over. Applying liberally all over one’s body. Rinse and repeat. Liberal isn’t just a political buzzword.

    And I’ll agree. This isn’t SUV world.

    The same way cell phone kooks vomit up the word “elegant” when talking about operating systems. People make me sick.

    OK I recognize the first one...early picture...I saw them during their Radio Clash days in Atlanta, was in the first row. That concert was one of the main causes of my current tinnitus.

    Who is the second one though? Flock of Seagulls? I think I saw them as well, though memory of that a little hazy. The times, you know.

    It’s Depeche Mode. Most certainly the most “4Runner” of all bands.
