    I need a new truck but cant decide on one. I will be using it for daily driving, camping, mountain biking, road trips, and light work. I want something that can hold up to 4 people some what comfortable, good gas milage, defently reliable, has decent power, but not a fan of full size trucks. this is what i found in the paper.


    1. 2005 silverado single cab 15k V8 fully loaded 22" rims $12,500obo
    -Can onlyfit 2 people, crappy gas mileage, but really good deal!

    2. 2003 f150 ext cab, loaded 39K V6 $7900obo

    3. 2003 Tundra ext cab 39k V8 loaded 2" lift $15k
    -fit more than 2 people, crappy gas mileage, but really like the truck.

    4. 2000 Tacoma ext cab V6 73k SR5 prerunner $8800
    -not as roomy as tundra, better MPG


    I just cant decide, help me out please!!!

    Knock that F150 off your list, a V6 in a fullsize won't save you any gas, you'll be using the stupid foot alot more.

    I'd get the Tacoma

    I was thinking about that, but its way too big for me. I think the tundra is the perfect size, smallest of the ful size trucks.

    if ur trying to fit anyone over 5'5" in the back of that Tundra it is not comfortable @ all. I'm 6'1 and have to sit sideways. I'd say go for a midsize truck w/ 4 doors and a v6. check ur local listings in the sunday papers and just wait for one of those way below retail deals (there's only one @ this price) and get that.
