    Guys,
    Thank you for all the advice. I ended up getting a used 15 rental return SR5 with 22k miles on it. I plan to enjoy it. It is the biggest car I have ever had and yet is surprisingly easy to drive.
    Lets see what winter brings. Will go up north next weekend to chase grouse. Wet muddy forest roads, and a little snow.
    thanks again.

    I agree.
    I would avoid rentals. Leases, on the other hand, are generally well-maintained and not abused.

    What the hell do you guys do to your rentals? Do you try to tear them up or something? I think for the vast majority of people they drive them like they do any other vehicle.

    For the vast majority of people, this is true.
    For the small minority of renters of vehicles, well, it only takes one.

    You could also buy the brand new rig that the guy missed a bolt in the tranny....
    We used to sell a ton of rentals, problems were virtually non existent.

    Not saying it it couldn't happen, but the odds are by far and away in your favor.
