For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Hi All!

My old Ford F250 was a workhorse, but rusted to death before it hit 100K. Replaced it with a Toyota T-100 that I built with parts from the junkyard. Not counting my time to do it, total cost was about $4K. The original had a factory supercharger that failed catastrophically, taking the engine with it. NA now, and the 3.4l 6cyl has been very solid in the ten years/100K miles I've had it, as has the rest of the truck; I've replaced the shocks a couple of times. Period. 200K on it now.
I see no reason to upgrade, and can certainly find better uses for the $$$ it would cost me to do so, but if I do, it would be to a Tundra. My vet drives one about 100K miles/year; over plenty of crappy dirt roads, with that 1500lb vet-pack in the back; no problemo. He says his first one had over 400K when he sold it, with only routine maintenance, and he has had the same experience with his current one; (a 2012 I think), now close to 300K, and still looks new. He says "no problem" towing his 2-place BP trailer, _and_ the vet pack. Who could ask for more?
