If you guy where going to buy a new or used truck for trapping what would you recommend. Want something that's cheap to work on and upgraded. Looking into a Tacoma but not sure.

I picked up a 21 Tacoma TRD off rd with a manual trans. It's my favorite vehicle I've ever owned. I wanted a used one but prices were ridiculous so I just got a brand new one.

Problem with toyota, especially in todays truck world, is the cost of used. You can possibly find akmething u der 8-10k, if you dont mind the frame rotting. Maybe theyre different where youre located. If just roadtrapping im holding out for an s10 or ranger. If in hittin the fields, i just got a tundra with 10 plys ill feel comfortable in.

its hard to beat a small Toyota if you can find a good one to buy. People hate to part with a good one. Good gas millage which is important. If you find something you could run it by on here and get an opinion.

I had a Nisan Pathfinder that seemed nearly unstoppable. Used to be able to find them as reasonable prices.

Went from a 2018 GMC crew cab with 57000 thousand on it, to a 2021 Chevy Trail Boss. Traded for 8700$ difference. Had to pretty much buy the truck while it was in shipment to the dealership. Hard to find a new vehicle right now on a lot because of chip shortages. They will give you premium prices for low mileage used cars and trucks just to put something on the lot to sell. The dealership is actually doing pretty well because they are not paying the manufacturer a lug every month for each new vehicle setting on their lot. You are better off to buy new instead of used right now.

Even in a normal year unless you like a different vehicle every couple years, buying new and driving it till there is nothing left to bolt parts on to is in IMO the cheapest way to go.

Toyotas are really hard to beat. I've said it a thousand times for trapping I've never found anything that can take the abuse. I ran through a number of trucks over a three year period trying to replace a Toyota that lasted me 16 years. Especially where you are you won't have to worry about the rusting issues that come with them. In my opinion that's about the only downfall of owning one up north you've got to keep them clean or you won't have a frame.

I haven't owned a new vehicle in my life, generally nothing that's not at least five years old. I prefer to pay cash and not have a payment. With my credit and the current state of things I took out a loan. 2.99% is really hard to beat for interest. My credit runs around 750-805 not too shabby for a younger guy. If you're going to buy something new now is the time to do it. I still didn't buy brand new but I did buy a truck that's about 2 years old. My 2001 Chevy was flashing check engine and the tranny was slipping. They still gave me $5000 on a trade. That's crazy to me but I wasn't going to argue with them. The problem with owning a newer truck is I don't think I can bring myself to beat it up like I want to. Probably going to stick to calling this year. I still have a 2014 Jeep I use for my daily commute so buying a beater truck isn't in the cards right now. I have no doubt this thing would tear it up I just want to put some miles on her. 20,000 miles and I talked them down from 39,000 to $33,500 and got the $5,000 trade in. It was too good of a deal to turn down. I was looking at a Toyota in the same price range in the Tacoma and same mileage. They wouldn't budge on the price.

I know quite a few people with Toyotas and they all swear by them. But for some reason every time I show up at any of their house they're fixing something on them...

Buy a new Tacoma. Enjoy it 225,000 to 250,000 miles then sell it to a kid for a great first truck.
