I had some problems with my original 1992 in 1993 with the engine overheating. So for me the Dakota was the most comfortable going down the road, but the 1992 Toyota wins in all other areas such as gas mileage, towing, hauling, anything that involves the work a truck should do. Bumper falls apart if used for towing. Involved in a major accident September 1993, about 30,000 miles, that destroyed the entire front suspension and components on the front of the engine. I have had to have the Dakota towed once, and had to fix it on the side of the road or in my driveway more times than I care to admit to.
Engine not made for trailer pulling. Brake lines, fuel pump and radiator have been replaced. Is this normal or is this just my truck? The body is straight as an arrow andthe paint looks stunning. The 2nd choice is a 1999 Chevy S10 2. Has a slight oil leak. Although it isn't as powerful, it is much better on gas and much more reliable than the 3vz-e V6 that goes into the early '90s Toyota truck. Royal pain in the butt to put differential lockers in.
Of course the more you haul or tow, the lower the top speed. Yes Review Date: 8th February, 2011 Hey, I have a chance to buy a 1992 Toyota truck extra cab 2. Faults: Power Steering Pump developed a leak at 160,000 miles and was replaced at 170,000 miles. I drive this truck 80 miles a day has been a good truck. The name triggers thoughts of dependability, durability, excellent workmanship and much more. Seats are comfortable enough for 150-mile trips to and from work sites.
Replaced the after market running boards at 155,000 miles. Head gaskets and timing belt were replaced within the last 30k miles. I paid the dealer to complete the engine overhaul including new clutch components. This truck is utilitarian, but with just enough to make it reasonably comfortable. Will crawl through mud and snow in low 4x4. One last note; I prefer the classic looks of the 1977, but I love the added comfort of the 1992.
Replaced original tires with mud and snow light truck tires at 40,000 miles. Also, I am wondering if having a full size truck would be much worse on gas. Hauling wise they are similar; both will take a good amount of weight in the bed, though I have found that the Toyota will take more weight in the bed without sagging, both of them will tow a similar amount of weight, however the Dakota will speed up faster and hold higher freeway speeds on hills better. If you're adventurous, feel free to drive it away and I'll meet you at my shop. Services provided exclude any parts required. I only get ~15mpg at most. Besides the engine the rest of the truck has been really reliable.
Repaired torn drivers seat at 155,000 miles. Now the 1992 Toyota pickup compared to the 1992 Dodge Dakota. Both my 1977 Toyota and my 1992 would haul or tow anything I asked them to, and on occasion I asked them both to haul more than I probably should have. Both of the Toyotas win reliability wise. Engine 3 on its way to failure. Not all buyers will qualify.
They are in about the same shape; I would say good to very good. Replaced 3 alternators all caused from washing the engine compartment. I bought a 1993 Volvo 240, and have been in love ever since - see my review here! See Certified Warranty Supplement for warranty details. This truck has never broken down. .
I'm happy to meet your freight carrier should you choose to have it shipped at your expense. Replaced second set of tires at 120,000 miles. Because my Grandfather was already retired when he bought this truck, it only has 63,000 miles on it. Tows a 3,000lb tailer comfortably, but is very slow up hills. If used for heavy fourwheeling the engine will fail. The Toyota is more reliable, and more economical and while the 1992 Toyota is not as luxurious as the Dakota, it is has enough creature comforts to be comfortable for long trips. The Dakota is by far the most comfortable of the three trucks, it is also the heaviest and the biggest.
This issuch an amazing truck and next to impossible to find one of these badboys in this good of condition. Must be picked up with 30 days, full payment due within 7 days. The windows and door locks are manual, there is no tilt steering wheel, no carpeting, just a rubber mat and a bench seat.
