    I loved it but couldn't justify having such an expensive toy that I only drove 7k miles over the past year...

    It was an 05 DC Sport 4wd.
    I am itching for another truck. Bought a 04 Titan only cause it was super well maintained and pretty cheap at 7500, but my uncle liked it and needed it more than me so I passed it off after owning it for 2-3 hours...lol

    now I am searching for a extCab or DC 1st gen. I won't fell bad if I only have 7-8k in a truck I barely drive. And if it is a 4 banger, I might toss my Camry (beater-gas-saver-easy to park in the garage at work car)

    Sorry you had to let it go, both of them. Really sounds like you have no clue on what you really want. I have only 52K on my 2005, now i'm gonna enjoy my low mileage truck till i'm dead of old age.

    If you are going to post pics of bras, make sure there are some titties in them.
    You are right, I don't know what I want, but I want a truck and I want it cheap.
    It was an 05 paid off the day I bought it, so no payments. Had no problems, but insuracne and property tax was 600 a year on a truck I don't drive....add the depreciation (not much on =Tacomas) and I was taking a hit I couldn't justify...Plus, selling it made me a couple bucks.

    The master plans involves taking the 15k cash and buying a cheaper truck and a pair of used jetskis fo rnext year.

    Different strokes for different folks, BUT, if I had a paid off low milage truck I wouldnt sell it to buy something higher milage. I would just save up some coin and buy the jet skis and keep the taco. This older 1st gen you buy might be a clapped out rattle trap
