After over a month of searching, I finally located one with a clean history and a fair price. It's a 2002 Tacoma Extended Cab 4x4 V6 Automatic SR5 TRD. This will be my first Tacoma purchase so hopefully you guys can give me insight on what to look out for.
I know that there is a frame rust issue and this truck shows it was inspected in 2010 with no perforations, but I will still bring my ball peen and do a manual check. I know I should check the 4WD system as well. Do I just need to press the 4WD button to activate it and make sure there's no mechanical issue? How about 4H/4L/2H mode, does the car need to be completely stopped and in car to switch those modes?
Any help is appreciated, I plan to see it first thing in the morning.
