      Uh, I'm going to need to see an industry source on that. Half the helmet-required events I've been to over the years had loaners.

      :thumbup:

      I was going to ask "why not a much lighter/shorter regular cab?" but this answers that as well.

      Not surprised it fits, the 4th gen 4Runner with a somewhat similar chassis has a 2UZ.

      I do think there's some truth to this. I mean, a car with 60k on it is well out of its "shakedown" period, but when you're talking about a car where there are certain pattern failures, it's still too...

      I'm only on year 14. My 14th anniversary will be in November, actually.

      Everyone else was already moving to light pressure turbos, as was VW, but VW was also stubborn and stupid and probably needed to amortize what was ultimately kind of a bad idea.
