Toyota pickup trucks are one of those vehicles that just seem to run forever. They are great when it comes to off road use because of their lightweight and excellent four wheel drive system. Toyota first sent a truck to America in 1964 calling it the Stout. It was just a small mid-size pickup that was perfect for running errands around town but with only two wheel drive and being very lightweight, especially in the rear with an empty bed, they were prone to getting stuck if the weather or road conditions turned bad.
