Easy to drive, comfortable. I’ve driven it many times and it feels well built and smooth. I know it’s just one anecdote but it’s all I Read more

2nd Gen has the 3vz which isn’t great. 3rd Gen is awesome and can be had with a 5 speed and a real transfer case. If you want more info just ask. I have a 99 sr5.

I learned to drive on a 2000 sr5. Fan fucking tastic truck. 250k on ours and it was still going strong when my mom decided she wanted something new. Pretty sure it’s still out there. Read more

There’s a certain version of the V6 you have to avoid but I can’t really remember more. I think it had something to do with head gasket issues maybe?
