I still consider myself an active member.

So here's an update for anybody that's bothering to look.

I was driving home from work 7-14-15, and this dickhead darts out of a gas station through the traffic in the right lane- right in front of me.

BLAMMO!

I hit him in the driver's side front fender and spun him around 180 degrees.



Yeah, it totaled.

Too bad, too. That was a good truck. I pretty much had all the bugs worked out of it and it ran and drove awesome.

Turns out that dickhead wasn't covered, so my insurance payed me for the truck.

I bought this with the money:





Yeah, it's two wheel drive, but it's straight, and it's clean, and it doesn't need any major work.

I've already fixed a couple small things and I'm kinda digging the comfort level.

Compared to the '01 Taco it's like riding in a limo! It's got a fairly badass stereo in there and the AC kicks ass.

I'll be back in a 4WD pickup again as soon as I can finance it, but for now this is the new ride and it's just gonna have to do.

What about you guys? Is there anybody out there?

I just got an 05 Taco. Still have my 2000. Comfort on the new one is better but I rather have the J shift than electriconic actuated BS.

I'm still here and have always appreciated your help with my questions.:)

Man you just can't catch a break, can you? That sucks. But nice job with that 4Runner. Glad it wasn't worse.

That's what happens with those stock pretend bumpers.

I suggest you upgrade that new runner to have some real bumpers and protect yourself from those idiotic city driver types.

Anyone that want's can take a big ole taste of mine if they want too and I'll likely just laugh at them. Go ahead and take a taste of it, bitch. I dare ya. LOL
Wraparound armor is the thing.

Yeah, it really makes for a solid DD. I'm liking it a lot.

A friend kicked his wife to the curb, I gave him a hand moving some shit because his 4runner doesn't have a trailer hitch on it (Yet).



I towed some trailers with my '05 Tacoma, and never found it lacking. This truck is equal to that truck when it comes to towing, except it has better brakes, rides better, is quieter, and has a bigger back seat. It drug that trailer loaded full with houshold stuff just fine.

I still need something to get out away from the people, but this runner is sure satisfying me right now.

I'm loving both of my '15 4runners. I'm getting old, kids are getting bigger and 4runners just make sense to me now.

Hey Frank - sorry to hear about the truck but glad you got into something you're enjoying. I've got 2 kids now and an SUV seems more practical but I just can't get away from owning a truck. My '07 Tundra Double Cab was t-boned and totaled earlier this year. The giant car seats were already becoming a squeeze so I checked out a '15 CrewMax and was sold on it.
