New Tacoma owner -
Just bought 03 4cyl. DC SR5 83k - searched high and low for months looking for another Nissan or Tacoma. Glad I got a Tacoma. Asking price 12,5. Got it for 11k. Was happy to find a 4 cyl. since they're tried and true and a bit easier to work on in the compartment due to room.
Before this I had 93 Nissan 4x4. 4 wheeling was always fun, but I rarely did it. Parking on the side of our beach roads with loose sand was what I used it for more often, but only because I felt like I could park anywhere.
I jumped on the Tacoma since it was in my price range and our 2nd kiddo was already born. 4 doors were looking good and the truck is really clean and well taken care of.
Now, 2 weeks later (of course) I find a 01 6cyl TRD leather 110k miles for 10,8k. I don't need the 6 for pulling, but having a locking differential would be nice since I just jumped from my 4x4. I haven't seen or heard it in person. The seat upgrade and shocks would be cool too, but not like the differential. I don't plan on mudding here in Florida or anything, but parking on beach sand will eventually get the better of me with open differentials I think - it's been so long since I've had 1 wheel drive. I'm pretty good mechanically, but don't see me having the time to swap out the rear end by myself when 2 kids are are running around.
do you think it would be worth trading/ selling to move to the 01 trd?
