    Hey everyone, I am seriously considering selling my baby. Miss my full size and am wanting more room. I hope this is just a temporary feeling...

    Fwiw- I was just sitting here thinking how I'm never getting rid of my Tacoma. It's given me a total of zero problems in the 5 years I've had it. It does everything asked of it and never complains- kinda like a best friend. I'm keeping it even when the evil Obama fueled government turns the US into a socialistic wasteland where there is no gas except for those who control. I'll still wash, wax, and wheel it every once in a while- using the premium I've hoarded from the #%^|*€% democrats!:D

    nice post!
    My tacoma has never given me one ounce of problem either. I really dont think I will get rid of it, it is just a feeling. I should just buy something for my Taco, and make it like new again for me. I think my problem is that I have been so busy with work and other things that I havent had a chance to do a few mods I have been wanting to do.

    I thought about a DC Tundra and a Land Cruiser at different times but the smartest thing to do financially was to keep the old Tacoma. The Tacoma is a pretty unique vehicle- it is well built, affordable, rides good, and is customizable. I can't say the same about 95% of the vehicles out there. I'll keep mine, thank you.

    Agreed, I've had zero issues in 5 years as well and intend to keep it until it dies. However, the other day I thought I felt the tranny slip when running it through it's paces. :confused:

    I'm selling my Taco because i want to go the other route and get a smaller truck.
    So now im looking for a 2001-2003 TRD 4X4 ext. cab. which i think as an upgrade from my prerunner.

    I sold my Tundra DC 4×4 5.7 last year. It was a great truck but, after a year of ownership I got tired of its size, hard to park, just PITA in the city, not to mention its lousy MPG. Now I'm looking into Tacoma, but I think I will wait for the 3rd Gen.

    Whatever toyota comes out with it should be ok. There will be plenty of naysayers but it'll be awesome. I just hope the next gen will be half as interesting as the current!

    Well I just hope they design the throttle control system differently in the MT equipped trucks. I don't want an automatic, but I think I'm getting to the point where I almost wish my Tacoma was an auto.

    I still probably won't be an auto though. I'll just have to take a look at other offerings.

    I gave a Tundra they had on the lot a good look(as well as a Pro-4X Titan) before I ordered the Taco. I just couldn't justify the added cost for capabilities I had absolutely no need for. As much as I would have liked a V8 the Taco was the right truck for what I needed. Maybe in the future I'll get a full size, but I'm happy with my choice now.

    If you need the room, then you need the room - where's the debate? Me, the Taco serves me well. I don't swing a hammer so I don't miss the full size bed. I'll prob hang onto this ride for another 8 years anyways, it does the job perfectly.

    I don't know what else I would get though at this point. I'm kind of accustomed to having a mid size truck now, I don't think I want to go back to a car, and I don't want a full size truck.

    I don't really like the looks of any other make of mid size truck.

    Thanks all. Like I said earlier, I think this is just a feeling, because when I start weighing pros and cons, the Taco comes out on top every time.
    In fact I had been wanting a Tacoma for a while when I bought this thing in 07.
    I would like the extra room, but after a while Im sure I would be saying I dont need all of the extras like I did before.
    So I guess I am saying I am keeping my baby, and I am just gonna finish up the mod list I have had on hold for a while. :)

    Wow, that's impressive. Not what you wrote, but the fact that you joined TW in March and that was only your 6th post. YIKES!!!

    J/K. Good luck on your Taco search.

    OP: I think the "New mod" idea is a good one. Some times. we know what we have is great, but we need a change, even a little change.
