I'm getting out of a Jeep Rubicon, (Tranny blew after 62.000 miles, automatic), and getting into a Tacoma. I'm new to Toyota's, and need advice. I wouldn't mind a base model regular cab 4x4 stick with a 4 banger. I think I'll be fine running 31"s out here in the desert, but will the stock gearing/ 4 cyl pull those tires? It will be a DD mainly, but it will see some steep old mining trails on the weekends too. Am looking at getting the newest Tacoma I can afford, (around $18.000). so, 08-10 would be my guess.
