    Nice truck! Reading the title I thought you'd gone to a Ridgeline.... :puke:

    But you kept it in the family so I don't think of it as the dark side. :D You just super sized it.

    You'll be back. Everyone is allowed one mistake now and then. Even if it is just a minor one.

    yeah, your still driving Toyota so you didnt go to the dark side. Now if you get a Ridgeline then not only did you go to hte darkside but you automatically turn gay :)

    BTW, your pics just showed up as red X's is there somewhere i can go to see the pics, i'd like to see your new monster ride

    No it's cool, my buddy did the same thing, but with an 03. He likes it real well and he needed a change, been driving Tacomas for a long time. He keeps throwing the V-8 in my face and that's starting to wear thin...so don't do that. He was kind of surprised about the timing belt issue at 90,000 miles, he is going to drop around 800-1000 dollars, I don't know what you would have to spend ? Good luck with this truck, but please still hang out with us, it's all good. :thumbsup:

    timing belt?? my brother is a diesel tech for Mercedes Benz and he said the only thing he would worry about is the 6 spd auto transmission only lasting till 200K miles or so. not like that 22R tacos where you can empty the trans fluid, fill it with rocks and punish it on a daily basis for 20 years straight.

    Well said Duff, that is true. I have heard about this T belt issue, Audi I guess is the same way, I was fortunate and stumbled into the 4.0 L, T chain, I knew nothing of this info. prior to the purchase.
