    I personally love the new Tacoma, Tundra, and 4 Runners. Just too rich for my blood currently. I know they drive excellent and I see a ton of them on the road. No personal experience though.

      I had a 2015 4Runner loaner during my beach vacation last year. After what we did to that truck on the beach in Duck, NC, I wouldn't hesitate to buy any new Toyota. That truck was a beast.

      Doesn't help with the 5-speed, but I can vouch for suspension/4wd ability and the Engine/Auto are plenty strong.



      I may or may not have returned it with the smell of spilled bear and rotten squid. (It got rough out there on the beach one night, yes we had a DD.). I cleaned it up as best I could with baking soda....

          I thought you were considering a 100 for her?

          Not that I'm biased or anything now.

            My work just picked up a new Tacoma that I was looking at the other day. I noticed that there was only one pipe coming off the head on the exhaust side. Upon looking it up, it seems toyota integrated the manifold into the heads. Strange right?!

                We just bought a highlander to haul the kids around in ... It rides really nice. Previously we had the Sequoia and it also was good, but gas mileage was poop.

                  Yeah been looking for a late 100, An early 200 or a new T4R. She likes the tahoe/yukon but hates parking it and driving it around town in tourist season. So the T4R is much easier to park and so on, and the LC are not a ton smaller but closer to the size and handling shes comfortable with as is now. Its not something we are really pressed with though.

                    Interesting read I came across. In my search for knowledge.

                    http://expeditionportal.com/the-10-c...rland-vehicle/

                    Kind of reinforces what I was thinking. A good set of 265's, mild 2" quality suspension lift, and recovery equipment to start my build. After a while I'll toss in some lockers front and rear. The more i think about it the more I want this rig to be something I can throw my family in and drive across country while getting off the beaten path whenever possible, without worrying about getting stranded in the middle of nowhere.


                    On that note, I definitely want to add a second battery in there. How do you guys do it? I was thinking have a very basic setup with a simple knife switch so I can isolate it from the circuit when we setup camp. Basically an emergency backup in case we run the primary dry. I would need both on a switch at this point to eliminate the load of a dead battery when trying to start.

                    Thoughts? If I'm missing something let me know.

                      most guys use a marine grade transfer switch to isolate the aux battery. There are digital set ups that are not too costly that will allow you to monitor, link and isolate the batteries from in the cab as you see fit...

                        not all that strange my mom's 2012 civic has it that way too. Basically it'll cause the care to warm up faster getting into closed loop faster for better idle AFR. I'm sure there is other reasons for it as well, but I think it is cool

                                Unfortunately the Tacoma still has a dinky engine. The Tundra barely gets it done with its.....
