sweet truck! just wait till you have to do maintenance on it. Did brakes on a friends once. Complete pads shoes drums and rotors? 1 grand. They are cool but way overpriced.

Enjoy it!

I just realized the 5.25 rainbow components and kenwood rears I had in the ranger are not going to be a good fit for Tacoma. These speakers are direct fit into factory housings on ranger w factory hardware. No modification required. I need to figure out what they are worth and I'll list them FS. These speakers sounded awesome, they are less than a year old...

Nice Yota. I really like them. But hard to justify the price, imo. Not sure what you paid for it, but i'm sure it was a pretty penny. I'd be willing to bet you can get into a newish F150 for around the same price, or cheaper.

Buddy of mine picked up a 2011 Screw F150 for 27K. Had 11k miles on it. Clean as hell. Much nicer truck...bigger...5.0...4 fullsize doors...much more power. Just my opinion though

no doubt they get a premium, and it def sucks. but finding a used one with less than 2,000 miles the initial buyer absorbed much of the depreciation. Full size is always within striking distance when you're buying a smaller truck... the F150 is only a few K more than Ranger, same with Tundra, but i cant justify the size, nor would it fit in my garage or be convenient to load and reach into the bed for my gear. four doors arent for everyone but half doors are! :) i honestly believe if i got a ranger with half doors id have kept that truck forever. i would get so frustrated loading back into and out of the back when the bed was full.

this Taco was WAY less than 27... the nice thing about tacomas is i feel like its in between the size of the ranger and a full sized truck. Yota pulls it off with thinner doors, roof, ect, tail gate is half as thick, and i love that, theres extra room everywhere in the truck, not given up by fat body panels, yet rides totally solid.

lol @ dave, his truck hates him
