I always wonder if the toyota resale values stem from the 90's era brainwashing, and the fact that consumer reports has been blatantly in their pocket the last few decades. Theres a reason toyota decided to offer the 105 along side the 100 when they switched to IFS, because even they knew it was admittedly weaker and wanted to offer people the option of having the better solution in the countries that would put these through hard use. For example the wishbones cracking when they hit the bump stops seemed to be a fun time compared to the solid axle sibling. Regardless It just makes sense that a vehicle weighing 575lbs less with 60 less hp, and 34 less torque would put less wear and tear on its components. That is unless you were one of the lucky ones with the two pinion IFS diff, that likes to grenade regardless of the low power.
as far the LCA's cracking, has anyone ever known someone where this happened? i did hear of such a thing with diesel 100's but the typical built 100 front end easily weights what a stock diesel does, and ive never seen it. i HAVE seen bent and broken SFA's tho, so once again, its just a specific design issue, and not inherent with IFS.
you'd think all those toyota Hilux's built over GVW would be broken on the side of the trail.
