Congrats on the new truck. Toyota makes a good truck for sure. I just recently bought my frontier and of course compared it to the Toyotas - curious what drew you over to the Toyota in the end?

I just got tired of the look of the newer frontier. I'm not saying it's not nice, and I know they have about 30 hp more, but the look of the Tacoma just won me over. It is fast enough for me and has enough power for me. I traded from a gen 1 haha...

I think the interior is nice, and the seats are comfortable. I'm only 5'9", so there is plenty of room for passengers in the back (when I'll have them). Working on pics. Back in a minute.

....and photobucket is performing "maintenance."

Hahahaha, yeah. I'm sure I'll still swing on through here sometimes and see what everyone is up to. I still like looking at all the off-roading pictures everyone takes and all that fun stuff! Frontier or Tacoma, I love it all!

Just curious why you did not go with the long bed? Can you still get the long bed?


Nice looking ride. I think most every Nissan Owner has looked at the Toyota's as a close alternative. At least for me I did. In 2007 when I bought my truck Toyota was on my list but their truck with 4x4 and LB was so far out of my price range and Nissan did not have a LB in 2nd gen at the time. So I went with 1st gen and could not be happier. Just the other day my wife took the truck and I saw her coming in the driveway and she just look good in it. However, she hates driving it as it's too big. She thinks the 1st gen is sweet looking ride and she is not even close to being a car guru.
