    I like the look of the Z71 better. Plus it's a 4x4 aye? If so, then this is a no brainer .. for me.

    The green yota looks ... green and I don't like the wheel combo with the green.

    Z71 is about 2x the power and better millage, so what if its bigger. I have always loved chevy full size trucks. the S-10 size ones blow donkey spunk.

    If you were wanting to trade your truck for a Tacoma that was worth it, we would have voted for the Taco. But that one, 4x2, body lift....surely wouldn't be a fair trade for you. Nobody wants to see anyone make a bad deal, weather most of us are Yota crazy or not.
