I got my Tacoma a few months ago and have been lurking a bit, but It is time to start getting some things done to the truck so I figured I had better register, so I can use the SEARCH function!
It's my first 4X4 truck and my first Toyota (I was a VW guy for years.) I do a lot of fishing/hunting and a lot of driving in the woods here in Oregon, so yeah, it's awesome. And I already hauled out a dead buck deer in the bed! (My friend shot him while we were bow hunting last fall.)
The new (to me) Tacoma is a 2006 4X4 double cab. It has 116K, it's black, and it came with a 3" spacer kit on it. I am not sure what kind exactly, but I was told it was bought and installed at Les Schwab. It has nearly bald 285/75/16's on it now, on stock rims.
One of the things I will be doing first, and very soon, is new tires and maybe new rims. My priorities are gas mileage and NO RUBBING!
The 285's rub on the UCA's just a bit and it is pretty annoying, because I have to do u-turns often in the woods on really narrow logging roads and I have to do a full crank on the steering wheel (which is when it rubs.)
So far, I've purchased some camo seat covers, some heavy duty floor mats, and some vent shades for it from Cabelas, and I have done 1 oil change and put new front brake pads on it.
I am looking forward to getting the rear leaf squeak fix, and the charcoal filter removal mod done, both of which I have learned about so far on here, TW!
It is looking pretty good right now, but it is in desperate need of new/smaller? tires, that don't rub!
I will post up a couple pics tomorrow when it's light out.
Oh, yeah, I got it for $15,000... and it's paid for.
