    None yet. Thinking of buying
    Great thread!

    Question: I'm thinking of buying a used Tacoma to tow my Boler. I understand fuel economy is worse for the 4x4's but is it much worse if I'm mostly going to be towing anyway? I.e. would 4x4 or 2x4 both get ~12-15mpg or will the 2x4 always get 5-6 MPG more? I was trying to piece the answer together from these posts but couldn't quite figure it out.

    Also, if I'm looking at buying one with $150k miles, what parts/maintenance do I need to watch out for (other than timing belt)?

    Thanks!
