    I like your truck, too. I think the smaller the cab, the better looking the truck. I just needed the Access Cab space.

    I baby my truck, too. That's probably why I don't think it's underpowered.

    I think it's crazy to complain about the power from a 2.7 lol. If you need power you just get the v6. Pretty simple. I could have got one but I drive my truck more then anyone I know as my daily driver son it just didn't make sense. Ideally I should own 1/2 ton truck for my toys and other loads, and a small car to rip around in. But it made more sense to me to meet in the middle. I haul everything I need with this little beast and it goes through everything

    My little 4 banger is fantastic. It' not a v8, I knew that when I bought her. She hauls me and all my work crap(construction) around just fine. Do I have to press the pedal a little harder going up big hills and when I wan t to pass? Yeah, but I do sure like getting 21-22 MPG. I could have waited longer and put useless money into my old crap cavalier, got a v6, but I'm happy with what I have.

    Previous owner used to haul heavy loads, so he put an AAL on it and TRD front suspension with a lift and custom rear suspension for added weight capacity. I recently installed a tow package (Curt with lifetime warranty) So i will definitely see what this thing can handle as far as weight goes.
    I don't like having no room. However, when i get out of it and turn around, i find myself staring for a good 45 seconds to a minute. No shame. Lol!

    For me the 4 Banger gets me everywhere I need to go with minimal downshifting. It is a 5 speed Manual Tranny, they are made to shift gears as needed.
    That said, they make a bigger engine for those that feel they need more power. :)
