I have always been around toyota trucks in general, just never the tacomas. i was originally looking for a small commuter car, since i already have a 00 tundra and 91 f-150, but then got word that a friend of a friend's cousin was going to sell his tacoma. Good thing i got a hold of him before he posted it 'FOR SALE' because it was a steal for only $2000, especially since it only has 77k miles on it.
I've done the basic tune up, cleaned the throttle body, dropped a K&N filter in and did the deckplate mod. So far, I'm loving it.
