Joined the dark side, bought a toyota

It's ok, I still have the land rovers.



Got the very base model Tacoma with 4x4, 4 cylinder, and a 5 speed.

At least it was not a j**p

New. 2016 I take the Henry ford approach to cars. Any color as long as it is black (assuming I have a choice).

My house has the original Kohler Rockbourne toilets. No way I am ditching any of those.

Nice truck. Agree with you on black. Outside of the frame recalls over the years, which worked out in favor of those now with new chassis on old trucks, the Tacomas have a great reputation. Love that you can still get a 5 speed.

Although not a Taco, my 86 is going strong:

Ron,

Don't feel bad...

I'm thinking of getting the Highlander.

It's a slippery slope your on indeed. Next you will be on IH8MUD (just to check it out) then it'll be an FJ Cruiser on 305X45R22 Nitto Dune Grapplers in the driveway (with lots of stickers and multiple 52" LED light bars). After that it's sharing needles and facial tattoos.

That's a nice 4Runner. Nice new Taco too. My favorite Toyota is the 79-83 4x4, especially with the round headlights.

I just moved back to the States from Bolivia, and brought a nice clean 1980 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser with me. A big family and credit card bills motivated me to try to sell the beautiful beast, and at the consignment business I found this: 1968 Land Rover Series IIA | Art & Speed. Whadaya think - should I just make a swap and find some other way to pay my bills? :-)

Nice truck!
IH8MUD has lots of good Toyota info...
I'm on way too many different forums, and yes, you have to have a vehicle for each...
