    i drive a 2001 tacoma reg. cab with crappy bench seats, 5spd, 2wd.... its ok for work.. hauls 4x8 sheets of plywood just fine... but i'm going to be driving a lot more now going to customers houses and whatnot and need something more comfortable and fun to drive, but still need the cargo space. i was thinking of selling the taco (10k private party) and getting a used full size truck or suv... the reason i say used is because i'm most likely moving out of my parents' house and don't think i can handle a car payment once i leave (the truck is paid off) so what do you guys think? foolish to sell the new for an old? any recommendations? i need something reliable for daily work driving and needs to be comfortable... i've never been offroading but if i had a 4x4 with potential i would seriously consider modding it for offroad use... so remember under 10k!:x:

    thanks in advance!
