Thing does not get love. Keeps going and going. Original clutch lasted 369k! Replaced the lower ball joints @400k. Oil is what's on sale and changed when I remember too.

My first truck was a 96 Tacoma. It was a stripper, no p/s, no a/c, no radio. $9988 as I recall. Beat the heck out of it for 60k miles and then traded it in for a Jeep Wrangler. Should have kept it.

Back when Toyota engines were made out of steel, didn't consume oil like a drunken sailor on shore leave..
