    Could be. I'm 6'6" so my legs are splayed out in anything smaller than a class 7 truck, so it feels normal to me. I do 10 hour drives in the Taco with no trouble.

    I'd be less inclined to criticize this article if they spent less time taking artistic shots of water droplets falling off pine needles and more time explaining the differences in the marks given. Stacking up the TRD Sport vs Offroad trims of the other models in an offroad test? Why would you not just get the TRD OR? Hardly seems like an apples to apples comparison IMO, not that it makes much difference for riding around on a dirt road for the "offroad" portion of their test.

    There was some pretty obvious bias once they showed the Tacoma's portion as well, 1/2 the segment was about how the reviewer is a 1st gen owner, and "is focused on not being biased" instead of actually talking about impressions of the truck. Clear conflict of interest.

    Anyways, I've already written more about this than these people have so I'll stop. TLDR post the metrics and detailed scoring if you're going to rank the segment. Maybe write more about the trucks in your clickbait than what kind of drink you're sipping as well.

    Wasn't until the 2nd gens came along that the seats went back far enough for me. Until then the Ranger was the only truck I'd consider driving for hours on end. Full size is too much truck for my needs and where I have to park it. Reviews are just marketing bs. I liked Tacomas before and glad I finally get to own one that fits. New Rangers aren't even close to what they had that made them popular, more typical marketing, make them buy what we want to sell.

    Oh yeah. Almost married a girl from Bend. Very...what's the word...eclectic? Very...organic. Employed a Pacific sea sponge as a reusable tampon. Dad was an English Lit professor at the university there. Didn't fall far from the tree. Absolutely brilliant, but this:


    We sure had better TV show theme songs back in the 60's, didn't we!

    Every truck maker has bad apples. I use mine as a work truck and couldn't be happier with it. See a boat load of other Tacomas being used as work trucks. Other makes and models as well, some of which turn out to be lemons as well. Your contribution to the knowledge pool is noted and given it's due consideration. Your assertions concerning the makeup of the forum are not only incorrect but illustrate your own weakness of character. Man up, dude, accept that while your experience might not be unique, iy certainly isn't universal. Quit whining.

    For all of you who don't know what just went down, let me clue you dipshits in....

    The evil Purpleflyer aka The Mighty Lemonhead popped in on this thread and began overpowering forum users with his special lemon power - Extreme Bitterness. He's piling up the posts. He's running amok. A couple of us try to lighten the mood but fuck me if the dude does not know how to thrown the words "lemon" and "lawyer" around - sometimes multiple times in a sentence.

    Things are looking grim, and then a true hero arrives on the scene - Bagel Boy!

    Bagel Boy swoops in and in two posts, absolutely schmears the Prince of Bitterness. He then, with his last post, lox Old Man Lemon up.

    This is a blockbuster move that writes itself. I'm thinking of casting Steve Buscemi as Purpleflyer and Seth Rogan as Bagel Boy. Lucy Liu will play Stocklocker, and Aldo98229 will be played by some random hobo dwarf with a cleft palate.

    Sorry, too many episodes of The Lone Ranger, or maybe it was Superchicken, I get those hero/sidekick shows mixed up.
