I have an idea. Let's shit all over Fled's new cement mixer. :popcorn:

Fled, someone in my hood has a 4R in that semen-t color and it looks :fuckyeah: as hell :datass: I am legit :jelly: of it, lol. He has some extra broverlander :fancy: roof rack and ditch lights and stuff. Ditch lights might actually come in handy in Philly doe.
Why don't you buy a 4R then?
I just think it looks cool.

Too boaty and ancient infotainment IIRC
The 2020s finally feel relevant, with the new gauges and info stuff.
I haven't driven a TuRD off road with sway bar discos but they're supposedly better to drive, almost impossible to find used.
Expensive and poor fuel economy though.

NVM now I want a Trailcock version with srt seats and air suspenderz
As a bonus you also get a leak free roof with the JGC Trailcock :notbad: along with 21st century doors, suspension, and interior panels.
:dat:

Man, it's the lap of luxury compared to the farm tool I was driving. It's a weird feeling.

At least Toyota is waking up on their tech, the 2020 Taco has Carplay and Android Auto now.

I just wish they had a good steering wheel and hopefully the interior fabric meets the quality of the price of the trucks.

It’s better than a Colorado and a fraud but worse than a Jeep which costs 20-30% more.
The seats in my Colorado were fine. Just some of the plastics sucked. I need to see a newer Taco, but before the quality of materials was really lacking.

Yeah.

I'm thinking about buying my mom a new Carolla. She has an '09 S and loves the size, but it has mechanical issues. She's mentioned she likes the new Carolla... They are pretty cheap too.

Looks like I can get her an LE for $17k or an SE for $20.5k

She needs something small. She has a hard enough time not hitting shit already.

Her '09 was a lemon from the get go and she and her husband did nothing about it. First two months it needed complete new brakes... rotors, calipers and pads. Needed a head gasket in the first year and had 2 starters go out in the first 3 years. Since then it's been a constant this or that thing that I need to replace because it's always $800-$1200 at the dealer for something that's $200 in parts.

Me either. Completely blew my mind and my mom's husband was too proud to let me work with the dealership to get it replaced.

This one must have been made in Pakistan next to the AK47's by guys with rocks in a cave.

The Dodge Power Wagon is a Screaming F-15 Strike Eagle of Muricaness compared to any new vehicle I can think of including the the Jeep Lineup. Do you even Hemi?

Doesn’t depreciate and you can put 63 octane fuel in it and it’s going to run forever. Spend $40k on a trd variant and in 3 years it’s worth 30. In 5 it’s worth 28.

Thanks.

The one I wanted is at my old sister store but has a cracked bumper and is in the body shop. Trying to score a similar one from a dealer the other side of Philly... so if all goes to plan it looks like it’s :taco: Tuesday.
