Talking New to the taco world, need some advise!

Hey guys! So I'm going to be getting my first Tacoma here in about a month and I have been doing some research and decided to make an account here to get a head start. I have a few questions, first you should know I'm looking to get a 98-03' ish extra cab. I'm leaning tward the "4 popper" but open to looking at the 6's too. Budget is $8000 or so. Is there Any year or model I should look for or stay away from? Anything else I should know?

Thanks for any replies in advance!

from what i know the first gens are pretty solid, but make sure you check the frame for rust!!

just make sure the timing belt/chain is replaced like it should be.

Welcome to TW! I owned a 01 4 banger SR5 4x4 and it was a very solid truck. Never had one single problem with it at all. Still kick myself for trading it in.

Thanks guys! And I always mix up advice and advise, just one of those habits lol.

I have another question, I like to do a bit of off roading and going fast so do you think the 4 cyl would be adequate? And is there some easy mods I can put on to give it some extra vroom? Really appreciate the advice thanks again
