Is it a Subaru?

97 S-10 with 4 banger and 162000 miles auto trans single cab. Runs great and I've taken it more places on the farm most of the guy's wouldn't take their 4x4's . But then again DE isn't hilly but plenty of marsh mud. And man have I overloaded that truck !!! Totally abused and now my son drives it and if it holds up to his crap I might just keep her. I too like the smaller trucks but my next option will probably be a Ford Ranger here they are practically giving them away.

I have owned this same Toyota 4 cylinder pickup since 1995. It has had some very hard miles on hunting trails. It is the oldest hunting truck in the area. It's just like the Energizer bunny, it keeps going and going and.................

That's a damn good looking truck and the last year Toyota made it before b*st*rdizing it into what it is now.


Given the option, I would rather have a straight 6. How I love the 242ci in my Jeep TJ. But I'm still looking around, and not getting into a rush. I'll post pics of the first time I take it up through the woods. Hell I may have a salesman with me when I do it. What a test drive.
