    Okay, so back a few pages there was a discussion about the Mark Twain NF. November is definite no because of work; however, I have mapped out a route down first week in April. Two days (family stop in Des Moines) (and lunch stop in St Louis-Pappy's!) to a start on the TMOT. from there follow the TMOT to Bentonville.

    Is helping. but what say you who have been there. Need ideas for MTB rides/trails, must see sites, must wheel roads etc. in the Mark Twain NF. This will all go into my plan and make it that much BETTER! Thanks in advance.

    So. Many. Stickers.
    The problem with your request is the southern half of Missouri is the Mark Twain National Forest. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of miles of trails and dirt track and mountain biking and everything in between all over. It's a real hidden gem. And it's freaking massive lol

    So How can I narrow it down further-give you guys the route (roads etc?) The TMOT goes basically down through it. What I am looking for are your favorites and I will sort out from there...

    @uploadadventure will be your best bet.

    Admittedly whenever I've been down there.... I just kinda go everywhere :D

    My favorite spots are actually in the SW part of the state, around Bull Shoals lake

    So far I drove them till my warranty expired.

    1989 (6 miles new on the showroom floor)
    2.4 lt 4spd manual. Made in Japan!
    I’m not even sure how long the warranty was but Arlington Toyota in Arlington heights, illinois replaced the clutch at 10,000 miles . (Drag racing every weekend since it was a week old at Great Lakes Dragway Union Grove, Wisconsin.
    Bracket Racing Labor Day 1989
    8EEC3B9C-3D92-4095-8A9D-68161694502D.jpg
    made it to 300,000 miles and was hit by a 30’ uhaul truck and sold it for $500.

    2015 (5 miles new)
    36,000 mile warranty.
    3D9413E1-5102-458F-826C-9BDA59391E0B.jpg
    Traded it with 49,000 miles


    2017 36,000 mile warranty.
    B8A25AE2-E94B-4946-9C72-D4758BCE9AA7.jpg Traded it with 95,000 miles


    2021 36,000 mile warranty.CC59A4A6-9397-4E96-AF6B-9FA219F5EC22.jpgCurrently at 15,000 miles and less than a year old.


    If the Tundra i saw a few weeks ago didn’t have a $12k markup on it, I might have broke that trend.

    The markups are so bad my dad gave up on his dreams of ever owning a new Tundra.




    He's currently on his way home in a Baja Storm Titan Pro4X with just the right amount of fixings, for $4k under MSRP (plus his work discount [$3k] plus his trade in [$3500]) so you know..... $10,500 under ain't too shabby

    And I got to test drive it yesterday and I gotta say..... I love 2nd and 2.5 gen Tundras. But..... that Titan Pro4X really brings it. Actually drives a lot nicer than a 2.5 gen Tundra imho. Better sightlines too.

    I love new... but I like no payment better. 70k right her, right now. Good to infinity and beyond (if somebody doesn't total it first...)

    Yeah, I’m going to see how many years and miles I can get on mine. I kinda hope it outlives me.

    I just saw a video where a guy did a 100 mile fuel economy test and got like 23 or 24! It sounds like Toyota might be going after Ford.

    As far as the other topic at hand..

    I have planned on keeping this 4Runner forever since before I bought it...

    But...

    If the next gen is totally awesome and get crazy ass fuel economy like the new Tundra, I'm going to have a hard decision to make. Especially if they switch to the newer style KDSS like the Landcruiser.

    Really? Now I gotta see if the look grows on me. Only saw 1 in person and wasn’t feeling it the first time.

    The sports are noticeably lower than the off-roads. Like it's almost comical especially with those fugly grills.

    Mid-20s and the new Tundra? I believe it.

    As far as going after Ford, the only Fords that get that kind of fuel economy are the tiny engines when going downhill. Comparable size engines to their Toyota and RAM brethren they're getting just as bad.

    Just add to this conversation. I told my wife my Tacoma was the last truck I'd own. At over 231000 on him I don't think I did to bad considering the way I use it or play with it. Figured after leaving it with the Wife for a few months and a wheel bearing went out . now is time to change things up. It all comes down to maintaining what you have ! Hope it just holds together after a few changes ! We will see but so far it's been a better truck then my 87 Chevy I traded for it.(Drive it like you Stoled it )

    I’m not sure what model I saw. Just had weird lines, but I’m not opposed to changing my mind.
