    I appreciate the write-up, OP, and the time you took to type all of that out. It’s a testament to the care you’ve taken in preserving your truck and a reflection of the same. I vote to keep the truck and keep on driving it. At a certain mileage you just have to hang on to it and see how long it can go, and you’re definitely in that mileage range. It’s the same with my work truck, a 1998 T100. My Dad bought it new at the end of 1998 — according to the Toyota salesman 1 of 3 left in North America before Toyota discontinued them. He used it as a delivery truck for 18 years, and put 685,000 miles on the little 2.7l. Then, it went to me and I use it as my low-key get to work truck. It finally crapped out at 701,000 miles. I had the engine rebuilt by a work friend for ~$2K, and I’m driving it again. Currently at 706,500 miles, and getting 22 mpg. The stupid thing is a part of the family, haha. So yeah, I vote keep your truck and drive it.

    kind words & thanks for the read bud!
    my kids feel the same way... the taco is part of the family
    just gotta keep going until major engine or tranny issues arise...then I will turn it into a monster truck for fun & off roading
    currently its my daily drive...so I wanna go to 400k or 500k before I retire her to playtime use only

    amazing to hear the 700k marker on your end
    good work & keep going
