    hello from the other side of the cascades!
    did you get any snow this weekend?
    I got nearly a foot here in chiloquin

    I notice your taco is supercharged...that must be fun as hell...how many miles you got?
    (interested in knowing with supercharger upgrade how long the motor lasts? any issues?)
    when I hit 400-500k I will retire mine from daily driver to a toy truck
    & would consider the supercharger to get more 'fun' outta the taco

    The Mazuri feed was exactly 2,000 lbs, and the tractor/trailer (with attachments) was right at 4,500 lbs. Over standard capacity on each trip, but just kept the speeds low and stayed off of public roads. Truck did really well on both, and all my other various trips, and the 5 speed sure makes towing better, haha.

    Some days I wish I had the auto, haha. 1998 Toyota T100 with over half a million miles (manual), and my truck with over 257,000 miles (manual), well, sometimes I get sick of shifting.

    When I was in the market for a taco I knew since I planned to be towing an 18 foot travel trailer I wanted one with the S/C. At that time I didnt know about this site so I got a lot of horror stores about the S/C, such as, they burn more oil, they run hotter, they are harder on the engine all the way around. I have not found any of that to be true at all. When I change my oil I find the level to be still up to where it was when I changed it last and also it is still nice and clean also. My heat gauge runs slightly less than half way so thats normal. I have 150k on the engine and it runs super strong, yanks that travel trailer up any of the Cascade passes without even breaking a sweat.

    And snow? Yah, a light dusting here and there, not really anything to brag about, I guess up North got hammered pretty good.

    Don't have any work realated photos. BUT, I deal with insurance and been to quite a few houses to inspect deep in the mountains where people swore I wouldn't make it due to snow. I've yet ''never make it" :bikewhoops:
