I was driving an FRS that was supercharged. Went through 8 belts on the blower so I pulled it off. Still sitting in the driveway, haven't been able to sell it yet.

There she is, hiding in front.

Thinking of a Taco as a DD.. Yours looks super nice
Thanks, it was a TRD OffRoad. Put Billstein 5100 shocks with OME 887 springs to achieve the lift. 1.25" Spidertraxx spacers and 275 tires. I did have to chop a small portion of the front cabin support and weld it back up but I have a local guy that did it for $250, to eliminate rubbing with the large tires.

Honestly the truck was very basic - infotainment is basic, I had some problems with the A/C and overheating for some reason, probably related to taking it off-road honestly. The worst part was that the car shook ever so slightly at highway speeds, the seat would visibly shake (passenger), also the truck is under-powered severely so the transmission would seek for gears during regular cruising (ESPECIALLY if you put 32" tires on it). Good part about it was that I bought it for $34k with 6k miles and traded it in with 22k miles and still got $34k lol

I must ask why did you change to supra? I hear great things about both those amazing cars.
That's a great question. Both Cars are solid but I wanted to try something different and growing up as a kid always wanted a Supra figured lets try this out.

Here are few cars I've owned over past few years....

This might sound like a silly question, but how are you finding the driving engagement of the GR Supra compared to your ND RF?

I had a '17 RF in red. Really liked that car, but it was too down on power for my tastes at Denver altitude.

That's was my only complaint with the RF...The RF was very fun to drive and toss-able around the twisties but gutless as hell! The Supra fills that void nicely with far more hp and tq and still is nimble to drive...For me the Supra is the perfect compromise between the '17 RF and '18 Vette I owned which was not very nimble !
