It goes along the lines that you could buy a tacoma with an e-locker before the TRD trim level came out.

Even more rare option I have seen, was an individual who was selling their tacoma here who had a 98-00 body truck, factory sunroof, and he says factory leather seats. Seemed to look factory as well as the shape of the seats matched that of the cloth wrapped seats. I haven't seen the leather option before or after, but who knows, Toyota was weird when they were building these trucks back then.
added some random sunroof info to the end of post #4

I'm about to look into replacing my new 01 Toyota. The frame rotted so bad it cracked and a frame replacement would cost more than just buying a new truck would.

I'm looking at a dealership across the border selling an 04 Toyota Tacoma, the exact one I have in every way except actual year.

So, I'm a bit curious. How did the frame recall effect 04 Tacos? Because the few people I talk to said that 04's weren't under the recall and their frames are good-to-go. What should I be looking for and should I be cautious? I've never seen a 04 with a warranty replaced frame, so I think they may be right but I know next to nothing about 04 Taco Frame status.

The particular one I'm looking at was coated previously and there are no major holes or anything like that. But there is some rust and it looks "scaly" it was described to me. The trip to see the truck is about two hours so I want to make sure it's worth the ride.

They want $15,900 with 90,000 miles on it. It's a Double Cab with a Cap and 4WD.

I have an '04 Double Cab for sale and it has 0 rust on it. I had the frame inspection done and they gave it a clean bill of health... See my sig.

So quick question, the sooner I can get it answered the better.

I just bought a 2001 Toyota Tacoma. The rear diff was patched, I'm pretty sure that's a common repair and not a big deal. Any input with that? Or should I be concerned at all?

Picture below:

The pumpkin has a patch, not sure what the material is but it's not welded or anything. My uncles Tundra was patched too. This is common, right? Not a big deal?

First, you should start a new thread to ask your question; no biggie, just a heads up.

Second, you should be thinking about looking for a rear assembly to replace your current one. Look into sources like: http://www.car-part.com/ to find one. The pumpkin starts out with pretty thick metal; if that rusted through you should have some real concerns.

I just bought a 04 AC that the dealer did the full frame replacement. They did mention it took some wrangling with Toyota though to get it done.

This seems like a great deal but I'm curious to know if they're the adjustable ride height series....Guess I could ask!
