Moving on?

So im getting rid of my truck. Why? Lets see, in 1.5 years the clutch went out, the 4x4 went out, pulled the front shocks out of their mounts, went through a set of rotors and both diffs started leaking. Also the front rides like crap. Yes i have the t-bars cranked but only to level the truck out. I still love it though. It was my first truck and i has never let me down to the point where i couldn't drive it. I bought it hating fords cuz at the time i could only afford it and i really wanted a 4x4. I have grown to love my ford and I have had many great times in my truck. But i thinks its time for something else. If all goes well with my job then im selling it and my RX7 and getting a new Taco double cab 4x4 TRD. I would get the auto only cuz i drive a lot to and from work and i dont like stick when offroading. I know its more capable but im tired. What do u guys think? Should i stick with my truck or get the Taco. It would only cost me $100 more a month so why not. Would i be hated upon?

Tacos are great. Keep the Ranger, store it untill you're old and rich, and drop a 350 in it.
