Hello all, I'm gonna buy a Tacoma in the near future. My current daily driver is a '66 Mustang, but I'll be selling it soon. As much as I love it, I need something that will take me to the snow, bike trails and camping sites with ease. I'll hopefully have 8-9 thousand that I can spend for the truck. I will be getting a 4cyl, 5 speed, 4wd, extended cab.
I'm basically 99% set on the extended cab, but I had a few questions:
What are the main differences between the standard cab and extended? Do the extendeds weigh a lot more? Gas mileage much worse? Can the extended cab actually hold more people?(<<most important question) About how much longer are they? Does anyone regret getting a short cab as opposed to extended? & vise versa?
Does this site have a section for the 95 and earlier Toyota pickups?
I hope to get at least a 2001, but I'll have to get lucky. I'm thinking realistically with the idea of getting a pre-'01. I know there's obvious styling differences between the 2001-above and 2000-below Tacomas, but were there any major differences in the engines, drivetrain, frame, etc (besides the rust issue)
Thanks for the help, I'm sure I'll have more questions soon... -David
p.s. What are the max sig sizes?
