1997 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
This was my Toyota that I owned for 2 years. It was the SX model. The tires were Fireston 31x10.50x15 all terrains.
It has the 2.7 150hsp 4-cylinder. I was impressed with the pickup of a four cylinder.
It is comparable to my dads '93 V6 Ranger (160hsp.). I was afraid the gas milage of the
V6 would be too bad. This one gets 17-18 in the city and about 20-22 on the highway.
With an 18 gallon gas tank I get about 300 miles to a tank. In comparison
to my '91 Mazda 4x4 this one has much more power and pickup. However I think the BFG
31x10.50's that I had on it did better off road and in the mud but it is hard to tell. I think the
BFG's were of a harder compound because they seemed to skid easier but last longer.
I ended up trading out of my Tacoma in 1999 because I needed a V-8 to pull a 24ft. deck boat.
