The small tacos are great for SEPA trapping, easy to squeeze into small farm lanes, pull off road on tight spots. Love my 2 04s. I have a FORD150 work truck from my employer. I run the Tacoma on the weekend only .

I will be selling the red 04 4cyl 5 speed later this spring. Only drove it 3K miles IN THE PAST 2 YEARS.

The best little truck with great curves.


I'd be interested in your red truck. How does the frame look rust wise?

my wife and I travel quite a bit to the caribbean and I see those small trucks there all the time. I wish more were available here and I think they'd sell.

My brother had a D50 4wd back in the late 80's. I thought it was a cool little truck and I think there's a market for something that size now.

I agree with most trucks bought now days don't even go off the pavement and are bought as more of a status symbol than anything else.

I loved both of my Trackers!!! They will go places most trucks won't. Great for setting traps. I took the back seats out of mine and you can get a lot of equipment back there.

I'm with Bob, you can keep the anything but a standard cab and a 8ft box on a fullsize truck.
I'm afraid the new Toyota will come with a double cab or an extended cab at the least that means a 4-5 ft box.
It'll be more of a fashion statement than a mini-truck.

A no frills 2 door model would be a great seller IMO.

Not trying to convince you or anyone else to change your thinking on a small size pickup bed. I haul a lot of things 8 feet and longer with a 6 foot bed. I have a rack I can slid in and out and haul on the rack just about any length of material a full size pickup bed can haul. I just hauld 20 sheets of 10 long pieces of tin roofing with end gate down and had a couple 2 x 4's under the load. I have never had to use a full size to do what a 6 foot box can do.

Just my view on the 8 foot verses the 6 foot box.

Not hard to make a bed extender.
Easy to slap on or off when needed.

Of course you've never had to use a full size to do what a 6ft box can do.
But there are things that a 8ft box can do that a 6ft box can't do.

I have hauled 2 x 10 x 10 footers INSIDE the wife's minivan with the rear gate closed.
Regularly haul 4 x 8 ft sheets of plywood again inside the van.

My Dad regularly hauled 12 ft sheets of drywall in the back of his pickups. No way you can do that in a 6ft box.
You can haul 33% more wood chips, manure, gravel, or any other loose items in the back of a 8ft box than a 6ft box.

Also a truck with an extended cab or double cab can't haul (weight wise) or pull as much as a truck with a std cab and 8ft box can.

All this to point out stuff that a 6ft box can't do but a 8ft box can do.

Why limit how much work you can do unless there are other things that are more important. If that's so that's fine. At that point maybe a analysis of why a truck with a 6ft box is needed. If its just to haul the occasional couple of 10ft pcs of tin roofing a minivan could maybe do the job so the downside of having a pickup can be avoided.




a 6ft box is a compromise between a working truck and a truck that spends it time doing minvan stuff.

These new pick-ups are more cab than bed. For my personal use, I don't want cab space as much as I need bed space.

I get trucks in the shop everyday that have the turning radius of a school bus but only have a 6' bed. crazy

Seriously, if buying a vehicle like pictured, why not just buy a mini van that's has the payload covered?

I wish I could go with an 8 ft box and standard cab, but I need cab space for hauling family and such too. Therefore I make do with a 6 ft box.

I doubt the bed on this thing is 6' Trapdog. Looks like 4' would be pushing it.
