    I find this tow image hard to believe.

    I thought the tow max spec for this tiny Toyota was 2,500lbs. ?   Maybe you could go a mile, downhill.

    You'd need a cuмmins Turbo Diesel with enough torque to pull this load 5,000 miles, cross country.

    The image is hard to believe, but they managed to tow that load around in the little truck. Obviously it wasn't a long distance, but it was still shocking.

    Very nice. If I do get another truck it's going to be something small with a steel bed, so a Hilux would be great. They're just rare where I'm at and stupidly expensive.
    I am in love with the one in the videos. The only thing I'm appalled about is that they had to pick up a really nice one and total it. Why couldn't they get a base model Hilux and destroy that?

  • It is hard to watch any vehicle get totaled.

    Indeed. Especially since one just like that in the video can go for about $30k used.

    I watched 1:15 mins on the first, and 45 secs on the second. Maybe I’m strange but I found them disgusting and offensive.

    We bought a 2nd hand hilux and drove it for 18 years. Best car ever!
