    2 spare tires?

    I carry 2 spares, esp in the spring, early summer. I've blown two tires on the same road, going to a flyfishing hole, and returning. I was very happy to have the 2nd wheel & tire. It would have been a several 100 mile tow bill, not covered by AAA. We are considering a 2nd spare for the Tacoma...

    How Much Worst is an 80 in an Emergency Maneuver (swerve) than a 100?

    SoyBoy, Safety starts by NOT over-driving the vehicle! - In what ever condition you're in... Period. Clay Croft of Expedition Overland publicly stated, the he thinks the 100 Series is the best LandCruiser... He's had a 62 series, FZJ80, a Tacoma, a Tundra Platinum, and the 100 Series. No...

    Decked storage vs bedslide for Tacoma with cap

    We went with the Bed-slide system, for our Tacoma TRD Off-road Short-bed. Very handy for packing for different trips. The tie-downs are strong. We found storage bins that stake, and lock in place. Small rachet-straps keeps everything secure.

    Whats next at EarthCruiser

    hey Lance, Since you have experience with the Iveco 4X4 Daily, can you give us some insight, why that chassis isn't available in the US? Is Fiat worried that it take sales away from the Dodge Promaster? Hope you and the Mrs., are healthy, safe and sane. David - in Boise.

    Things to hate about a 2020 Tacoma...

    We have a 2018 TRD Off-road, Double Cab, Short-bed. I've been happy with it, Beeps and all. We deliberately ran it past the 15 mile to empty. We think the reserve is 2 gallons. My issue is with the gearing of the Automatic transmission, wish I had a real 6 speed gearbox, and a true Over-drive...
