And thanks wolf, I can't wait to really get it plowing through some snow. I have these wild fantacies of my truck charging through snow in this epic fashion like the arctic hiluxs do. Dam its gonna be fun
You're going to use that car in the snow? Well, at least you'll get a good rush just driving to the mountains!

haha yea If I can come up with the extra 300 dollars for sure I would! they are gnarly tires! but the atz radials are a little less aggressive too so wont be quite as loud on the road.

I was fortunate enough to meet him last year when the gumball came through toronto, a cool guy with the craziest lambo i've seen in a long time



someone had stolen his swede plate the night before (i'm sure the fact it was velcro'd on didn't help)

The only reason i bought a truck at 122k miles is because it is a 1st gen toyota tacoma and they are famous for lasting forever. I loved my lowered 2wd 99 tacoma (and had to sell it to buy this one), but i really wanted a 4x4. So i found this one that was very well taken care of and jumped on it. Of course one of the biggest reasons i got a 4x4 was for driving in the winter to go snowboarding, so this will be my new mountain assault vehicle!
Nice find! Taco's in this shape are definitely not a common sight. It's a shame Toyota doesn't make their vehicles the way they used.

Petroleum? I looked at Toyota USA's site and was suprised to see that the Tacoma doesnt have a diesel engine? We have the diesel "hilux" variants down here. 3.0 Diesel Turbo, and Diesel intercooled Turbos (I have a 96 4 Runner 3.0 Diesel Turbo, it hauls ass).

Heres some hilux ads for them from when I was growing up, wonder if your Tacoma will be able to do this

yup, gas, i cant think of a single diesel compact/midsized truck or suv sold in the us... Alot of tacoma entueusiasts in the us would kill for a diesel hilux to come to the states. The torque of a turbo diesel, plus the hilux (i believe) has a solid front axle. It would be the best stock off roader you could buy.

btw your links didnt imbed, but ijust coppied the links and watched em. i think my taco could get close...but i wouldnt want to find out how close haha. the tacoma commercials from the states are pretty funny.
