My thoughts exactly. I've got a quote for one with the 6 ft bed for 24000. All my quotes on fords have been upwards of 30000. Alot of service companies around me are running the Tacoma which is the only reason I thought about it.

Well went with the tacoma. Hopefully it works how I'm thinking it will. Got out the door for 25000 compared too 31000 for the ford. The fuel savings will more than make up for the added maintenance costs if any. Thanks for the info

I see you bought the taco, perfect. The local pool companies around the Beaumont area use those taco's also.

I went from a 2013 FX4 v8 to a 2019 TRD Off Road 4runner. I traded the ford in due to electrical issues. The only downside I have is the power of the v8 to pass and the occasional times I need a bed to put something muddy/nasty in the bed. Other than that I am extremely happy with the purchase. My plans are to keep this as a hunting vehicle/ toy and will most likely get a Tundra later down the road as a daily driver/hauler. My mpg in the ford was 14 average and this 4runner is averaging 17 and I tend to have a heavy foot.

Great decision on the Taco. I am hoping my wife wants the Taco vice the 4Runner. I've owned Chevy's, Toyota's, and just got rid of my wife's 14 Jeep GC. I am not going to talk bad about MOPAR products, but never again.

The 2018 F-150 I used at work averaged 22 mpg. My personal 2010 averages 17. I don’t know how much of the better mileage comes from the lighter aluminum body and how much is from the engine improvement but that’s a big cost savings.

Hey there! Is this the pool guy that called about our F-150 for sale on the classified section? It's in great shape as my husband is a real stickler for maintenance on his vehicles. It might suit you well. 281-723-6440 if you want to look at it. We are in League City.
