whats up all, i have been looking at these forums for about 6 mo now trying to decide on the truck 4 me, and u guys have helped a LOT! last summer was my first in breck and my buddy has a chevy s-10 2wd 4 cylinder( if u can even call that a truck) and we took it on some of the more mild trails out here. i was actually impressed at how far it could go. So that made me want a 4x4 bad. im from iowa so all im used to in offroading is mud mud mud. i could post a pic of my 1990 chev lumina if u want but i think i will wait till i get my taco. any input you would have as to which engine i should choose would be a lot of help. right now im leaning toward the 4 because of the reliability, less problems, and the longevity of the motor itself. i know how well the previous owner took care of it is a big factor, but that aside, in my opinion it seems that the 4 would make more sense financailly, as far as maint, etc. what do you think?
