Wow EZ oil change

I have never had a Tacoma Prerunner before and when I went out yesterday to change the oil suprise!!

No floor jack, wheel chocks, jack stands needed.
Man it was so EZ thanks to the DIY thread I had everything at hand.

Most all of my previous vehicles were way lower and it is a bunch more work.
This truck is COOL.

Indeed!,
Everyone makes mistakes once in a while.
I always do my own as we have all heard the horror stories before.

Yea , isn't it nice to just slide in under your truck to do the oil. Especially if you have an 06, or up and the filter is up top. Easy to get a strap on if it was tightened a bit much.

Pshhh, a man uses a hammer and a screw driver. Strap ons are a little to kinky for my oilchange routine

I agree 100%!!!! I use to have a 99 firebird, and that thing was a pain in the @ss to change the oil and other things I worked on.
