I don't think you should be driving a truck if you cared.

Don't start acting like a ******* just because you got an import. you still live in America, and unless you live in Cali, nobody here likes the fact you traded domestic for foreign. when you cheap plastic parts start to break, please post up here so i can watch you fail at fixing them.

It'll give us real mechanics a laugh.

The fact of the matter is the Ranger is a great truck. Did I expect flaming trading up yes i did. IDAF what ya'll think. I do get 27-29 all the time every tank. I got it because I drive a TON and like the 1st gen Tacoma.

Alex the build quality is far beyond that of a rangers, suspension, drive train, all bigger and designed to last. Rangers everything is sealed, this truck there's 23 zerks under it that's a lot on a newer truck. There's no rattle on interior part like that of a ranger, it drives like a car. Doesn't suck fuel at all.

Real mechanics? Keep dreaming kid

If you want to call that bullshit bolt on speed shop Tasca, where all they let you do is touch the outside of the car when you wash and wax it, please do.

Not hating Tacoma's at all, but I would say most Ranger's are also designed to last (at least mine I should say specifically, no rattles or squeaks here). Maybe I'm just real lucky, since it's a 97.

Love both Rangers and Tacomas. First truck i drove was a first gen tacoma. 2nd generations are nice, but too expensive and have some things that need working out, IMO. But to say toyotas are better built is a pack of lies.

Can anyone say "frame rot"??? Say it with me now.....hahaha. Ive seen 04 Tundra snapped in half at the bed/cab line because of this. My ranger has lived 5 miles from the sea in new england its whole life...and not a speck of rust on the frame.

Found this truck while browsing the carnage that is the Toyota Frame Rust Recall. Thing is sexy in my opinion. Op you should make your truck look like that.
