I realized a small life goal today when I got to drive my friend’s 4x4 mini-truck/kei-truck. 3 cylinder NA, folding bed goodness. He lives/works at a neighboring ranch that uses this in the winter months. It is not fast (my 60 lb. dog ran us down when it was floored on a dirt road) but it is so cool to drive. I could see it being a beast of a utility vehicle, low weight short wheelbase stick shift with transfer case 4x4, especially for only $3,000 or $4,000.

Once I own property I’m totally getting one.
