    Hey guys,

    Just thought I'd run this through here for some extra opinions.

    So here's the scoop, I bought a 2009 Magnetic Grey DC TRD sport in January while I was in school, got a good deal on it (fleet deal) and an extra $1000 off (graduate promotion thing). Love the truck, put a 3" toytech coilover lift with TC UCA's, some 33" nitto TG's and Pro Comp wheels. crushed my bumper so ordered an All pro offroad bumper as well.

    Here's where I need the help, I decided I wanted to finish my degree internationally and am now moving to Australia for 2 years, so I'm trying to decide if I keep the truck, which will then be 3 years old with 1 years driving on it (if I decide to park it pretty much for 2 years). Or I could sell it to my brother for basically what I paid for it (I might be out a bit for wheels/lift).

    At first I thought I'd just hang on to it cause I love the truck, but the idea of having a 3 year old truck I've barely driven (and depreciated) doesn't do it for me, so I'd like to possibly sell it and buy another tacoma in 2012 when I get back from school/travel. I was also hoping they'd have a new model tacoma by then too. (plus I bought a full audio setup which I've now held off on installing)....

    Anyways, just thought it'd be interesting to get some opinions on what others would do.

    Thanks

    Sell it. There is absolutely no point in having the truck sit for two years.

    Its hard on a vehicle to sit that long. Gaskets and seals dry out for one thing,leaving potential for oil leaks.

    This. Vehicles need to be driven once a month (at least - once a week is better) for health.

    Cool guys, ya I'm definetely leaning towards selling it, It wouldn't be completely idle though, I'd get some to cruise around in it some times (which scares me even more lol).
