I am SICK and TIRED of blowing out the steering pumps on my 2000 Dakota.

Can somebody tell me about a Toyota pickup? Something big enough to pull my trailer, and the Gnewt, and hopefully get more than 10 MPG?

Is there such a Toyota? What years are good? How much can I expect to pay?

supercharged FZJ80 :D with OME HD coils. That's all you need to know. Then as an added bonus you won't need the Gnewt anymore! :thumb: :lmao: :D

You got a line on superchargers, Matt? They have been DISCONTINUED by Toyota.:(

Rumor is they are being revised and not discontinued. New ones are slightly more efficient. :D

But the advice to just wheel an 80 is still valid.. :blah:


And you're not going to do much better than 10mpg in a new Tundra anway. But actually Bobo here at work is considering selling his, I think it's a 2000? Let me know if you're interested, would be around $12K I think.

I've got to believe an early V8 Tundra would do the job. Don't know about MPG towing?

An 05+ Taco would tow your Gnewt no problem - the new 4.0 V6 is pretty nice. I get around 18 mpg with a lot of heavy accessories. But a used 05 will run you in the 20's depending on what size and package.

Hmm. What was that truck before the Tundra? T100?

I tow my fj40 with a 2000 tundra. The 4.7 does good, able to do 50mph over Eisenhower towing, I get between 8 and 10 mpg. Picked up the truck for 12G.

I would not mess with a T100 to tow much. That's just my $.02
