It is NOT underrated here AT ALL. A 2008 Tundra Iforce 5.7 costs 192 THOUSAND DOLLARS. Even if you have an old 80's corolla you are king **** here lol. Besides people love to steal Toyotas here as well.

Fords are the second most liked trucks here and the older chevys are the third.

If thats the case, wait for the Land Cruiser. Your other options suck if you want to do off roading, and the LC will be more reliable.

And also cost about $30k dollars more plus about $5k just to get to the front of the line. Believe me if the Toyota dealerships werent such knee jerk lemon scented pvssy wipes then I'd buy a landcruiser in a heartbeat. This is the one they sell.

If those are your only 2 possible options, then I'd say get the dmax. It can get going stupid fast if you do a little work on it, but be cautious, adding stuff like that will almost certainly affect reliability and I don't know how accessible reliable repairs can be found in Venezuela.

Id be doing the repairs, and If I can't do it than I'll take it to the dealership. Mechanics here are backyard bumfvcks that are convinced that you don't need coolant. Only water.

I currently have an 83 HP Daihatsu/Toyota Terios and I'm looking for POWER and I do love V8's and the sound they make.

The toyotas are the ONLY trucks I'd get without a V8 in Venezuela.

It has to be 4x4 and I do NOT want to buy anything used here.

95 Octane gas costs 12 cents a gallon, 91 is around 6 cents and Diesel is around 3 cents. I don't care about gas mileage .

the only engine youd get thats a non-v8 is a toyota? cummins?

edit- hahaha I just remembered this after reading your post but back before I totaled the 330i, I cracked the radiator again and couldnt afford to fix it so for a couple months I would go out every morning before school and pour a big glass of water into my radiator and it would last until the next night when it would all leak out in my driveway.

holy fvcking balls. I know it probably wouldn't workout but it sounds like you could make a **** ton of money buying gas in v and shipping it up to the states. To bad the leader hates us.

Its not about nitpicking its the fact that GM owns GMC and theirs a difference between Chevy and GMC. So don't say GM is better then Chevy because GM owns Chevy so make sure you get it right otherwise you look like you have no idea what your talking about.

Chavez does not hate you guys. I'm Venezuelan and Northamerican. The U.S hates us. And thats why they don't want to broadcast the CELAC Meeting in the U.S. They just want our oil. The pavement on the streets in Washinton DC is from Venezuela, we sold you guys that for DIRT cheap.

But I don't want to get off topic.

To fill the tank on my Daihatsu with 95 octane costs 98 cents. With my old land cruiser FJ60 is was about $1.50.

Gas mileage can swing on my *****.

They don't have diesel engines in pickups here in Venezuela.

What is your income like comparatively? I mean, if you only make 5 bucks a week then 98 cents is a lot. Not saying that's the truth tho. What is the economic situation like down there?

Gas is cheaper than water, a full tank of gas costs less than half of a can of pepsi down here, everyone has Directv. etc.

There is alot of speculation however and inflation aswell. But people are making more money here aswell so it balances itself out for them. If you only have dollars and not a job here than things will be expensive. Overall the economy is exellent. The government gives away free new vehicles to people who work to improve the community and help out. My friend got a New F250 in 2009 and he loves it. He uses it as a bus/transport in the Morrocoy internationial park and its HIS truck. The government is building free houses for people in the slums and the poverty rate has decreased a huge amount. Things are great right now except for the insecurity. But that will improve aswell.

We don't have a oppresive government and/or ruthless dictator here like the U.S Media wants you to believe.

The U.S want to say that so they can convince everybody to go over and "save" the venezuelans from the evil dictator Chavez which is bullshit because they only want our oil and resources. Chavez isin't a dictator. If he was than the military would have killed his ass or thrown him out.

We get Healthcare that we pay through in taxes that arent expensive AT ALL. The goverment is building new clinics and hospitals throughout Venezuela.

I pay $27.90 for electricity each month.
And $23.25 for water each month as does everyone else.

If the security was better here than this would be the best place in the world right now.
