    2011 F-150 w/ Ecoboost, just hit 23k miles. Love the truck, love the engine.

    Unless they've changed the Rams since 2011, the F-150s had way more leg and head room. I'm 6'7" and the Ram wasn't even an option.

    That's some high miles. Have you seem the Top Gear episode where they put a Toyota truck through all kinds of torture and it still runs.

    Those are badass, I used to have an FJ60 that I fixed up pretty nice. Thinking of getting another land cruiser maybe an FJ40. Love the look of the 70 series but you can't really get em in the states.

    Here you go. The best part is where they leave the truck on a long boat launch ramp. The tide comes in and the waves flip it over. They recover it and with a few min of tinkering they drive it away.

    Thats what I have, the short pickup, cept a '95... It's unkillable.

    I cant tell you how many full size pickups I have pulled out of the mud, snow, ditches, etc.. I have had people laugh at me when I tell them I can pull them out.
