I've recently had a strong urge to replace my current truck with a bigger truck. The truck I have now is a 1996 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 ext. cab 2.7l Auto. Its a slick little truck with new black paint. It just clicked over 253,000 miles. At 246,000 the motor spun a rod bearing and I tore the engine down and replaced everything except the block and head. I had the block bored .20 over also, so needless to say the motor is only 7,000 miles old. I currently tow a 5x8 trailer with a 717 john deere zero turn. I get about 16mpg towing and about 17mpg just regular driving. I'm looking to sell or trade for a 94-98 Dodge 2500 4x4 12v Cummins 5 speed. Some may say that is overkill but I'm looking to add another mower and use my 18ft car hauler for a lawn care trailer. Would a 12v Cummins suite me a lot better than my Tacoma? I also live on a farm and the Cummins would be hauling a few tractors, a rock crawler, and cattle.
