    Looks about right to me. If you shopped around you might knock a hundred bucks off of that, but I'd pay more for reputable service if it came down to that.

    Good gas mileage and trucks do not compute with me. If you want good gas mileage, don't get a truck.

    Do you have a number in mind for mpg? Preference for mid-size or full-size? The mid-sizes have gotten so bloated recently they are tough to justify unless you have parking constraints IMO.

    No smaller than a 6ft box. Was thinking f150 with 6.5ft box was about right....I don't know what qualifies mid or full-size anymore...
    Drive slow, homie.

    Unless you got a need for more room or carrying ability you can probably trust a used taco but you should drive the Taco and see if you like them, I drive fishing shuttles in the fall where I may drive 3 different trucks in 3 hrs and the Taco is pretty likable, I've also driven them for expediting

    Its been 10yrs on my ranger, need new snow tires next season, new summers soon, at a point where some shit is wearing out , also i'm not a big guy so I'm thinking about a new Taco

    I'm on my second crew cab 6.5' bed. This one is a 2012 F150 5.0 I picked up a year ago for a little over your budget. Its a nice truck but I've had a few little issues that have really pissed me off including a coolant leak, front hub going bad, and the horn just quit working. Stupid shit that shouldn't happen on a 90k truck. But I bought it used so who knows how it was treated for 6 years. Overall its comfortable as fuck to drive and I average around 15mpg, but I have 2" lift, E rated tires, and a tall ass shell with a roof rack.

    You may be able to find a 2015+ ext cab in your price range which have an aluminum body and appear to get better mileage. They still have stupid vacuum front hubs though.

    Right so the 2015 f150s or newer got the bump in gas mileage due to the weight loss? Maybe the v6 would be a good call....

    I just sold my well-loved 2000 taco, part of this post is seeing if there anything worthwhile other then a new tacoma. They use lots of salt on the roads where I live, so I'm concerned about the frame rust issues with Tacos.

    Any thoughts on the dodge eco-diesel trucks? Just saw one a little out of my price range....

    I have a 2017 Ram 1500, 4x4, 4 door with the 5.7 and average between 17 and 20 mpg depending on where my foot is at in the accelerator. I know there is a lot of hate on chrysler but this is my 2nd Ram, i retired the last one at 190k with no issues.

    I drove a full load 2015 eco-boost f-150 with Fx4 on a forestry roads/highway raft shuttle, it got very good milage, lotsa power, impressed with the ride on the shitty forestry roads and i have no idea what most of the buttons did

    I have no info but i worry about upkeep on a used 3.5 eco-boost, in fact the new strategey of the even smaller boosted engines (2.4 in the ranger) worries me as these trucks get older which is why i'm looking at the taco over the f-150 or new ranger

    there are frame recalls on the Taco in certain years so they just replace the whole fucking frame, i believe its a 40hr job I imagine its good chargeback warranty money for the dealer. When i biked thru the Toyo dealer lot last week there were 2 frames stacked on skids waiting to be installed which is something you don't see in a car dealer

    I mentioned frame recall to the local bartender/brewmaster so he goggles it and finds out his busted rear springs are covered on a recall too, back in the day my 90 4-runer had a head gasket recall when it was 7 yars old ... these are impressive things for a car mfgr to cover IMO

    also looking at the Tundra, in the 5.7 config which is how most of them come its a gas pig but a fish shuttle client pointed out the 4.6 gets better milage somewhat close to the tacoma, he said he never got worse than 18 running around contracting sometimes towing a trailer

    ^I kind of feel the same in regards to the longevity of the ecoboost but boy they drive nice and sometimes I regret not getting one. You can also get a 2.7 ecoboost now in the f150 which I haven't drove but sounds like its capable of decent fuel economy.

    I drove the 2.3 eco in the ranger in a mustang rental last summer and am intrigued to try it in the ranger, but a new truck is not happening anytime soon in this house.

    If the owner kept on top of things the later Tacoma frames should be fine, I have a 2008 double cab with 250k km, it was inspected and the frame cleaned and sprayed with some sort of coating by the dealer. Anytime I take it in, which isn’t often they check it over again. Also had the rear springs replaced on recall warranty. Fuel mileage is OK, but not great, Better than a full sized when running empty, probably about the same when towing or loaded up. Probably going to sell it soon as I need something smaller for our parking in Whistler, but don’t know what that is going to look like.

    F150 or Tundra both fit the bill IMO.

    Apropos of maybe something, while my son is out of the country, I'll leave my Tundra in the garage and drive his dirtbag 1st gen Taco every once in awhile to keep it fresh. 4 banger with a 5 speed, it will go anywhere and is impossible to drive without a smile on your face. I get some pretty funny looks when people see some old guy hopping out of it at Bridger Bowl..

    Who's getting one?

    General Motors (NYSE:GM) is in the process of rolling out a new version of its heavy-duty Chevrolet Silverado featuring the new High Country trim package that could become the first U.S. pickup to list for six figures, according to CNBC. Ford's (NYSE:F) Limited edition of its F-Series Super Duty truck can run at about $95K when fully loaded. Pickup trucks have been major profit contributors for the Detroit automakers, due in part to the willingness of drivers to pay up for quality. "For people who make their living spending all their time in one of these trucks, they’re not afraid to spend the money to get the best truck they can buy," notes AutoTrends Consulting analyst Joe Phillippi.

    You'd think a real cowboy could spring for a gun rack.

    And a toolbox. That's a truck owned by a damned fool without a shred of situational awareness. Might as well bolt a neon sign onto it that says "Low Hanging Fruit, Break Into Me!"

    Sections literally out in the middle of nowhere ain't experiencing a crime wave. And grabbing tools out of a toolbox at -20 below ain't an enjoyable experience.

    On a related note, how long have you lived in the suburbs?
