should be a bit better for my needs ... my dad jokes that its almost a full size ... which is pretty much true, for anyone unfamiliar this was toyotas first attempt at the full size market, 93 - 98 then the tundra came ... sales were low due to no v8 offering but at 190 hp / 220 tq out of the 3.4l v6 im not complaining

lol yea toyota dropped the ball here .... hubcaps .... really? They are 235/75/15s .... lots of tread so tundra rims will come way later ....

but yea im a bit more comfortable (im 6' 6") and way more oomph ... my mom was laughing the other day cause she asked me to take her to the store in the middle of wiring the stereo so we took the mazda and im like damn this truck is so weak haha ... either way imma drive the mazda for the most part till its sold ... gotta enjoy the better mileage for a lil longer

edit: damn craigslist .... i want http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/pts/2053614967.html

Problem is this will be the trend if FORD doesn’t get it’s $hhit together real quick, everyone that wants smaller trucks will have to go elsewhere.

You are correct, but the only one that will selling small trucks will be Nissan & Toyota.
