I traded in my Ranger for a new to me truck. Here it is...























Take it easy on me when you see what it is...














































Its an 09 Toyota Tacoma SR5. Fully loaded with power everything, keyless entry, backup camera, and 4x4. Having the extra room is really nice as well as finally having 4x4, the gas millage is awesome on it too.

I really do miss my Ranger though, such an awesome truck that never let me down.:bawling::bawling::bawling::bawling::bawling::bawling:

2WD in the Canadian winters isn't exactly fun. The main difference was for the 4x4 and extra cab room. Already have plans for what I want to do to this one, going to start with All-Pro front/rear bumpers, rocksliders, get some lift on it and some tires/rims.

Right on man, good buy! Tacos are awesome trucks, no matter what anyone says. A ranger might be more nimble and in my opinion more fun to drive because how much smaller they are, but I've had great fun in those tacomas too.

No shame is owning a taco. If I ever had to buy another small truck it would be yota for the obvious reason that they don't make the ranger anymore. But they are awesome little trucks, and lots of aftermarket support from the net and TRD!

I'm considering a Taco for my next DD if I don't just go Diesel.
One of my buddies has a nice Taco, arb bumpers, camper shell, OME lift, 33's.. is a perfect camping, expo, hunting rig.
