Another new Tacoma

Hi all
I've always had a truck since birth until 5 years ago (the wife, you know the rest). Well, it was time to do it again. Found a near mint 2000 Prerunner 2wd.(sorry 4wdrs, I'm 60 and slowing down a bit). My question is I go prospecting a lot in the desert and figure since it's a 2wd I should have a winch (maybe a wench too). I would like to mount in the rear (no, not that) and am deciding to put it behind the stock bumper or get a receiver mount and just slide it in when needed. Need some voices of experience.
Bob

Welcome to TW!

I know some people have found ways to mount a winch on stock bumpers... Search around a bit, I'm sure you'll find something!

Welcome to TW! Don't have any input on the winch location but hope you find a wench for the cab.

Hey thanks to all for the welcomes. I'll continue to watch this forum. I like it. My son wrecked his pt cruiser today and I'm sure will need financial help. So I'm putting off any major purchases for a little while. But, this is a cool forum. I had an SR5 in the 90's but this prerunner is way cooler.

Thought I'd add a picture of my 2000 Prerunner. Found it at a Toyota dealer in Anaheim. Out, in and under looks like a 2 year old truck. The downside? 280K on the mileage. I took a chance but, Toyota's rep for being bulletproof helps. Any of you have an idea for the most popular Toyota accessory to add?

Question I dont know what I did!! Please HELP!

I am new to Tacoma World but let me just say this is a very cool site!!! OK so my Taco was feeling a little sluggish so I took it upon myself to change the plugs. I have changed the plugs on my old Chevy and my Altima Coupe. The Taco was a little different but I managed to figure it out and I thought I did a great job. I started it and the engine felt great, until I drove it. Then the brakes just felt like they weren't grabbing. I pushed down on the brakes and it kept rolling until I really pressed down on the brake. So I don't know what I did!!! I am sort of freaking out because I am not sure what could I have done to have affected the breaks??? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!!! THANKS!!

Hi Raptor
Could you have slipped and kinked the master cylinder line? Maybe knocked off a vacuum line accidentally? I can't think of anything else.

raptor,

I tend to agree with 3puttbob, look for a disconnected vacum line or vacum stem without a plug on it. You have lost your vacum boost to the brakes somehow.

Thank you so much for your input 3putt. I took yours and wolftree's advice, I read up on vacuum lines. Apparently when I pulled the last plug on the driver side, I cracked the cap causing my brakes to freak me out, I replaced the cap and it was good as new. Again, thank you, it saved me money!!
