    just curious:popcorn:

    i searched for previous threads like this but didnt find any, so sorry if this is a repost.

    i drove this 02 ranger for 8 years before purchasing the tacoma. it was a great truck, but it just doesnt compare to the taco!

    I had a 93 Ford Dually that I loved but had to park due to 7mpg.

    I then bought an '05 Dodge 1500 because I was 18 and it fully loaded was bigger and cheaper than the Tacoma I wanted.

    The dodge motor blew up two weeks after I bought it. It has had 7 power steering pumps, tranny issues, and a long list of others it was a nightmare.

    6 years later and I finally paid off the Dodge and got the Tacoma I wanted!!:D

    Years ago and before I had to commute a good ways to work Pontiac Firebirds and GT0's; then I got into Corvettes. When I first started to have a long commute, I bought a CTS. The CTS was okay but didn't fit my lifestyle. The wife always had a SUV but I didn't realize how much I like having a real truck. Today, Corvettes are a hobby and my daily driver is my Tacoma. I couldn't be happier.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Before the Taco I had the Gayest Pink 97 Tercel 5 speed with AC. Here it's blingin' 14" plastic hubcaps that have a 16" inch diameter for that "high end" look. Ya Chicks dig it.

    I drove an 01 Chevy S-10 Blazer 4x4 as my work truck. Got 180K out of it with a rebuilt tranny the only major work done on it. I had a 92 S-10 4 dr blazer 4x4 before that. I managed to get 280k out that truck with only a rebuilt tranny in that one as well. I miss that truck alot - that was a tough little truck that got me through god knows how many snow and sleet storms, got me to work on time and hauled tons of stuff all over the east coast and into the Ohio Valley all the time. Finally traded it in for $ 100.00 and picked up an 06 Trailblazer I still have and serves as a family vehicle. My Chevy's served me well but I luv my Taco. :proposetoast:
