Jeep Rubicon vs Toyota Tacoma
« on: June 11, 2006, 06:40:08 AM »
My poor 1990 Ford Ranger is in the process of giving up the ghost, quickly. I've narrowed my choice to either a Jeep Rubicon or a Toyota Tacoma.

I live in Colorado, have a bunch of camping and fishing equipment and really want to hit the mountains again. I'm planning on carring a canoe and taking whatever is appropriate for equipment, grabbing my dog and heading for the hills.

Guys at work are split between the jeep and taco. The taco has a bed to put stuff in but not the ground clearance or turning radius of the jeep. The jeep has a small space to carry stuff if I remove the back seat, but I'll probably have to get a small trailer for larger things.

Anyone have any experience with either of these vehicles?

Toyota.  It will hold its value longer and be a better-made/higher quality vechicle.

my brother loves his taco.

He's on his way to Arizona via Yosemite right now.  He spent the night with us and he just puts one of those nifty roof boxes (thule?) in the bed of the truck and he's on his way.  He carries all his video stuff in the back seat and keeps it covered and locked.

humble opinion...

toyota will say you mean business.

jeep will say you'd like to.

(+ all the other important stuff about holding value + construction, as mentioned by cliff)

Toyota, definitely!  The other good thing is the Tacomas are more plentiful.  You can pick up a year or two old used model for much less than new, generally without worrying about problems.  My family is sold on Toyotas these days.  My Avalon has almost 140,000 miles and runs like new, as did my old Corolla.  'Most all Toyotas are made in the US these days, if that means anything to you.

You guys have listed every reason I have considered when looking at Toyota. What I like the most is their reliability, they rarely break down. Toyota is probably the most sensable choice and the most versatile of the two.

But, for the most fun and a go anywhere vehicle the jeep rubicon is a kick butt ride. This thing is built for places like Colorado, a state where being stuck or stranded is not good.

I don't have to decide for a couple of days so I still have time to grow up and act like an adult. Then again, I'm almost 54 so why rush adulthood, besides, I only make adult decisions when I absolutely have to!

Thanks for the suggestions.

The Jeep Wrangler will be all new for 2007.  You might be able to get a really good deal on an 06 model. If I were considering one I would defiantly get the hard top one over the soft top.
