Hey man how’s it going I’m actually a Toyota tech sitting at work right now. In my personal opinion I’d wanna go Tacoma. The beauty of it is regardless of what you choose there’s a plethora of aftermarket support for them. I’m constantly dealing with the “bro-dozer” Tundra guys with their big This Legendary Tow Truck Driver Was Born In November T-Shirt wheels on little stretched tires or FJ people who have flipped their rig multiple times. I drive a 99 Camry and it stills chugs like a champ and for the most part Toyotas/Japanese cars are easy to work on. I feel like the Tacoma is the best overall package to be a daily and double as a BoV you could make a couple tasteful mods (Brush guard, all terrain tires, beads locks, bed cap, etc) still have it look good and have a solid rig.

I’d choose the Tacoma for the maneuverability, you’d be able to move through unorthodox urban settings I.e alleys ways, yards. I’ve also personally witnessed Tundras get stuck on some trails due to their size. My only recommendation is if you’re buying a used This Legendary Tow Truck Driver Was Born In November T-Shirt Tacoma make sure to ask if the frame has either been replaced or coated. For a long time Toyota had a program where they were replacing frames on the trucks. That recall is now passed however the ‘14 or newer now have a recall where we coat the interior of the frame to prevent rusting if you’re at a Toyota dealer it won’t be a problem but figured I’d let ya know! As for mods, I’d get the Bullbar, LED conversion kit, AT Tires, a hard Tonneau Cover, and maybe a running board with a retractable step for my short wife & friends. But what are beads locks? Also anything else you’d like to add to that?

Short bed or long bed is all your taste my man I personally like the 4 door short beds aesthetically plus can’t beat having more room for activities. V6 all day for a Tacoma I’ve hauled over their limits (friends truck) and they had no issue granted we weren’t that over the capacity and it was straight flat roads in BFE Ohio. Bead locks are to keep your tires from separating from the wheel itself. All my Jeep buddy’s run them however they’re a little more into the rock crawling aspect instead of a Bug-out scenario so This Legendary Tow Truck Driver Was Born In November T-Shirt may not be truly necessary just depends on the local lay of the land. Honestly seems like you’ve done your research very throughly. If you buy it from somebody/a smaller lot feel free to either PM me and I’ll run the vin for ya or even call up a local dealer and see if they’ll run it through the database to see what has or hasn’t been done recall wise. I’ve had customers been burned before because the frame issue
