karrbass4life- It was the earlier Tundras that had the rust problem. This was a southern truck so it still has paint on the frame only light surface rust. Definitely a rare thing to find on a truck in Minnesota. The headrests don't look like the old Volvo ones, at least not in mine. Wanted an F150, but couldn't find one in my price range with decent miles. $18,000 for a 4x4 with 80-90,000 miles was a bit hard to swallow for me.

The Taco hands down, I dont even consider Dakota's...They are ****! A dakota does not even compare to a tacoma, I laugh at the fact you are even debating it. There is a reason a Tacoma is more expensive, its because its a better vehicle.

Yeah, I drove a few Dakotas and was unimpressed.

Nothing major. I have company wheels so I only really drive on the weekends. No real need for 4x4 with weight in the back. Going to get a crossbed toolbox. Spray in bedliner, nerf bars, and new tires. I am also thinking of going for some different bumpers in the future possibly.
