Dunno but I'd be willing to see what my 1/4 time is!

Screw Chilton's and their dumb review. They couldn't even spell Hardbody right LOL. 'Harbody'. They also forgot to mention when they said 'Nissan lost the market' that Nissan trucks were considerably cheaper than Toyotas. Pfft...

I'm pretty sure it was the other way around, Yota was cheaper. Especially when optioned out.





I would say Chilton's did pretty good. These days it seems every review is bought and paid for to the lowest denominator that barely has middle school literacy let alone vernacular.


Saw a CNN article the other day that looked like it was written by a 2nd grader. Was supposed to be some top level political thing. It was incoherent with poor spelling. So was the person of interest in the article.

Chilton did what Chilton does. Don’t look at it as a perfect review it’s part of history.

Not in 1990, at least in snow-land for 4x4s. The Toyota-equivalent was about $2400 more, and the Hardbody had more standard features. The Ford version of what I was looking for was more expensive (in between?) and "stripped."

I liked how the Toyota shifted better, but the Hardbody looked better. And they had exactly what I wanted on the lot -- 4x4, manual, standard cab, short bed, and optional A/C. Got the dealer to throw in a heavy duty bumper that I installed myself, and quickly added a radio myself and OEM antenna. And then OEM fender flares not too much later.

The Nissan dealer was eager to deal (I was a cash buyer), where the Toyota dealer was "take it or leave it." I told the Toyota guy if they didn't take my offer, I was headed directly to the Nissan dealer to buy. And did. The Toyota dealer called a day later "with a good deal," and it was satisfying to tell him, "no, I bought the Nissan like I said I would."

Personal satisfaction from being able to say that is priceless.
