To awaken an old thread... I've been looking at both Ranger and Tacoma- the Ranger is a bit more affordable, but I think I would be happier in the Tacoma. If I could be out the door in a Tacoma for no more than $300 a month, I would do it, but the Ranger, I can do that, and I get a whole boat load of bells and whistles to. So to bring this thread back to life...given my scenario, I'm 23, looking for payments not above $300, don't care if its 4x4 or 4x2, need a supercab (2-door)... WHAT SHOULD I DO!? P.S. - Has to be new.
