Snow tires will turn the lowest of cars into snow plows as long as it is not extremely deep.

Grew up in upstate NY so always put snows on the cars. Looking forward to 265hp and AWD on WRX

That gets 20mpg.... I'm guessing it's a diesel?

that is one tank of a truck man. nice front plate bumper!

i dunno, i absolutely love my 4cyl tacoma. Having the d4d diesel from the hilux would be cool, but i dont think i would really need it or make good use of it.

i have a stack of goodies sitting around for my beloved truck. i have a 2.5" lift, 33" bfg ATs, a cb set up, and im getting sliders made. ill have a totaly different truck in 3 months once every thing comes together

first season with the 4x4 and there hasn't been much snow this year at all so no real chances to pull people out, but im sure if i had it last year i would have an impressive list of tows. hell i passed my 2 or 3 slide offs just in boise every time it snowed, driving up to McCall im sure there would be tons of smaller cars stuck

Plus I want a reliable and easily maintained car, since I plan on getting 5-10 years out of it.
Quite the list for $5000 and it's gotta last 5-10 years?

I think everyone would buy one of those for $5K

How do u get the picture to sho in the post and not just the link? Mine used to do it automatically with manage attachments.... Now it's just the links tha I see.

This is my second one that's almost identical to the first. First was silver with a tonaeu and quad cab, it got stolen at 3.5 years 100k miles... No issues at all. I had performance mods on it though, it ran low to mid 13s quarter mile times....

Normally the best way if using pics that are off of your computer is to use a website like imgur: the simple image sharer to upload your pics. Once uploaded all you do is copy the direct link and then use the IMG button provided above the reply box. Since you have already attached them to the forums we can just use that URL to post the pictures this time. Another tip is to remember that imgur will not resize you pics (I use the google program Picasa to resize multiple photos easily) , so take that into consideration before posting a monster photo.
