I’m just angry at what people continue buying overall lately not just trucks but in general.
I have always gone with used Toyotas because I’m cheap and I’ve always had great luck.
I only buy well maintained and always keep them maintained.
This is the first time in quite a while I look at the lineup and say I doubt I’d buy any of their offerings.
I like the circa 2003 Tundra the one with the 4.7 v8. I like the size the looks…
Good clean lookin truck in basic sr5 trim imo.
For my next vehicle I’d strongly consider a Jeep a basic sport trim Jeep because what the heck.
I think my Toyota ship has sailed.
Look at that 4Runner front end! What is that ?!
(I bet I’ve offended every Toy owner lol)
Oh well just how I feel having owned several hilux-the truck that built the rep.
Those Tundras are gold if you find one in good shape. If you’ve never owned a newer model Jeep, and hate on the direction Tacos went, you won’t be pleased with a new Jeep. Ours used oil @ around 60k. That was with proper maintenance. Thing would go anywhere and smoke out all the mosquitoes getting there.

How come they don’t offer a 70 series land cruiser here?
How come the land cruiser turned into a luxury on road monstrosity?
Why don’t they offer us a more utility based hilux instead of taco?
Because few people want that kind of rig here; we want fancy, cushy rides loaded with unnecessary crap.

Speak for yourself.
I think if that was brought here they’d sell more than they could supply.
