Get a toyota and just put gas in it, simple as that. Before I got my tundra, I had a 01 Tacoma v6 brand new and it would haul my 72 Camaro on a 16 ft low boy no problem. Stopping was always the problem lol. That's why I upgraded to my tundra in 04. Will drive it till the wheels fall off. 159k miles and never been in the shop. 15-19 mpg trip average
What mileage did you get from the Tacoma?
