At long last, the time has come when I must depart with my beloved truck. I can only hope that it will enjoy as wonderful of a relationship with its new owner as I have had with it for the last nine years. If you think that might be you, then I'd love to hear from you! The only reason I've finally decided to sell it is that there was simply not enough room for a growing family. Now that we've purchased another vehicle to accomodate us (a 2001 Subaru Forester), it's time to finally say goodbye to the pickup.

So what does my pickup have to offer you? Well, if you've done your homework you'll know that the 1991 Toyota Xtracab has proven to be one of the all-around best performing trucks ever on the market. My truck has certainly lived up to that, with practically no problems. Maintenance costs have been almost entirely just a matter of keeping up the recommended maintenance schedule. It has faithfully driven me throughout much of the U.S. and Canada, including plenty of mud, sand, snow, and steep mountain roads. Even without four wheel drive, it has taken me to difficult river accesses, up to 13,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies, and even to the bottom of the Grand Canyon! (Yes, you can get there by a rough dirt road on the Hualapai Indian Reservation!!)

The truck has a long wheelbase, reasonably comfortable rear seat (for short trips anyway), lots of nice little cubby-holes that Toyota spread around to put your stuff in, an aluminum camper topper, sliding windows between the cab and topper, a basic canoe rack, a trailer hitch, Toshiba stereo cassette player with removable face, cruise control, the Club, "tilt out" rear seat windows, anti-lock brakes, and 5-speed manual transmission. Overall I would say that it's in very good condition, both in terms of mechanical performance and appearance.

Ever since buying the truck from Team Toyota in Tallahassee, FL (long before its current election controversy fame), I have kept almost 100 per cent complete maintenance records and mostly complete records of gas mileage. Recommended maintenance procedures have been followed strictly. The vehicle has never been involved in any collision of significance, and the one parking lot fender bender was immediately repaired. Even now at about 192,000 miles, the engine is still running reliably and much smoother than would reasonably be expected.
