Yeah it sucks. I've lost all interest. Short of a suspension lift or SAS, which there's no point in me doing either one, I have nothing left to do. I drive it once every couple weeks. Usually have to jumpstart it. I drive my work truck everywhere else. Kinda sucks but I need a new project. THEN that puts me on the subject of whether it's worth buying a new truck and having a payment for something I could drive every weekend if I really wanted haha.

Why don't you get a car and make it fast. Or just buy a fast car to smash around on the weekends. Possibly restore a classic?

If it's paid off keep it as your wheeler. Find you something cheap and sporty to give you a second hobby that wont cost an arm and a leg.

I hadent aired down at all. after i did i was fine. Plus they have dura tracs and more weight

Also that video was suprisingly smooth. Is that a "powerline trail/road" that you guys were on?
Gas line, the hill is a rocky mess

I don't need a wheeler haha. All I need is 4wd to get my to my shooting spot in the desert once or twice a month lol. And I need 4 doors because in the next few years we'll have a little monster on the way most likely.

Ranger's are great trucks mine was just not a good one. But many of the guys over on TTORA (taco forum) have had Rangers. Now this is my opinion only and ill contradict myself a little bit here. Once you drive a Tacoma you'll really realize how shitty a ranger actually is. Not that they are piles of **** you'll just notice how much better of a truck they are.

Build potential of a Tacoma and all the aftermarket support is UNREAL
Rangers dont have as much support, they are more of a work truck, the Tacoma is unreal off road, followed by Toyota's reliability.

Ive experienced the exact opposite.. there are just way more shitty beat rangers which gives that image. taco is far from better, i am not biased either. i enjoy any well built vehicle

I never said anything about how Tacomas aren't good trucks. I just said that personally I'd rather buy a fullsize F150 or Silverado for the kind of money you'll spend on a Tacoma. Even used Tacomas are WAY overpriced IMO.

But, thats not the point of this thread. Everyone's heard this debate before anyway. Just personal preference.

You got that right... They hold their resale value really well. I paid 15k for mine in the end but with 50k miles. A Tacoma is eaier and cheaper to build than a ranger

Point and Case look closer at KLC's pic a nice Taco
