This is the best truck ever built


This truck was flawless.

General Comments:

This was my first Toyota, and it is the reason that I will probably never buy anything but Toyota's ever again.

Everything about this truck was mechanically perfect. These engines are unstoppable even after serious off-roading, over-revving, and general abuse.

This was the tightest feeling vehicle I have ever driven. Even off road, it felt like one solid piece of iron on wheels. Bounced it hard, went through water so deep that waves came over the hood, beat it back and forth to college and to work, and I never had a problem.

Toyota trucks, between about 1989 and 1995 are the toughest trucks ever built by anybody.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Damn right! Ha ha. The 22re is maybe the best engine ever built. In fact, I'm going to go ahead and say that it is. And wrapped around it is the toughest truck made by anybody, ever. I wish I still had mine, but I now have a '98 Tacoma with the 3.4 v-6, which seems to be just as good. Right now, it's sitting in the driveway covered in mud from yet another rally-cross adventure. Oh, and I changed oil today 1000 miles overdue and the old oil barely looked any different than the new oil I filled with. A perfect engine from Toyota. What a surprise, huh??
