Have you ever driven the 5.7 iForce equipped Tundra?

When I was shopping for a new (to me) 4x4 I did look at Brand New Nissan and Toyota trucks for $25K (2011) you could get a 4x4 4door V6 Frontier for that same money in a 'yota you only got a 4cyl extended cab. Granted the Nissan had crank windows and no cruise but hey you're getting a lot more truck for the money.

The biggest difference in price is in the Used Market, Tacomas hold their value better than nearly anything on the road!

I've owned from new (or close to it) '81, '91 and '94 Toyota's, and an '88 Nissan.
I like my '09 Taco better than all of 'em.
I like my '09 Taco better than my Dad's '03 Taco.

According to some in this thread, that makes me dull and wrong...Excellent!

^ No way are you wrong!

I've had 2 different 1st Gen Tacos and while I haven't had a 2nd Gen Taco I had a 4th Gen 4runner and I loved it way more than the old Tacomas. Only Reason I didn't get a 2nd Gen Taco was they just cost too much.

The power of the 4.0 V6 is so much better than any of the previous motors too.

Just a general observation, but old Camry V6's had MORE power than the trucks!

Some of the old Camry's had 190hp! And (back then) all the cars had twin cams, and all the trucks had single!

I'd still rather go slow, for a long time, and with less fuel... Than go fast, not as long and use more fuel tho,,,

But to each his own.



I've got a RTE



and a LWB SA frame waiting in the wings to become something like this;






Here's me




at my house

That's nice...what's an "RTE"?

There's no doubt I wish I still had my '81 regular cab 4x4 20r 4 speed...but as an even swap for my '09? Not a chance.

The '81 I bought brand new. Looking back fondly requires wearing rose colored glasses.

A 22RE, with a factory Turbo... From 115(?) to 135hp. Plagued with problems and IMO should NOT be taken on by anyone other than an enthusiast.

You can't just use any Turbo stuff on them. The ECU parameters will NOT allow it.

But most other stuff is an easy fix, thanks to modern technology and aftermarket, if you know your stuff.

The CT20s arent worth their weight in piss, but a CT26 from a 7MGTE is practically a bolt-on.

Blah blah blah MLS head gaskets, APR head studs... I'm gonna give it more go by using RE pistons with the stock open-chamber head...

Stock c/r is still low, at 7.5:1, even for a Turbo.


3.62" bore x 3.5" stroke, of cave-man simple, beautifully simple and damn reliable EFI, SOHC Iron block with aluminum head R greatness!

Cool stuff.

I can see why you're into the older trucks and that's great. I've just had enough of laying under some broken truck at -10 degrees and the wind is blowing any heat I can manage in my well ventilated garage right out the walls and any job becomes a big job when your fingers hurt like hell but I need to go to work tomorrow...no thanks - been there, done that. I'll make a payment on a nice, tight, reliable truck that does everything I ask of it and fits me like a glove.

That's not so bad, is it?

just did the brakes on my 97 Honda Odyssey...a payment was looking pretty good yesterday

it's cold in Ohio too.


I miss my Toyotas. Never had a Toyota truck , but my first car was a '78 Corolla SR5 Wagon (rumor had it that they used light truck parts in it, sooo...) That freeway sign green was stunning with the gold pinstripe.


A lot like this one but not as trick






I had several Celicas 79, 88, 89 and my wife was driving a newish Corolla 4 door when we met (true love certainly)


Loving the Toy trucks in this thread...
