Introductory post

Hello,

My name is Mark. Please consider this my introductory post. I live in Southern California, but am currently deployed overseas in Afghanistan.
I am looking at truck options and am considering a Tacoma. I appreciate any guidance and direction you can give.

Respectfully,

Mark

Welcome and thank you for your service.

You've come to the wrong spot if you expect objective dispassionate reveiws of the Tacoma. Most of the inmates are pretty much in love with their pickups.

To me the Tacoma was perfectly porportioned. It was bigger than my '92 ranger extra cab but on the same wheel base. It was also smaller than the full sized Fords and Dodges that I drove for work and found a little excessive and clumsy. I personally like the double cab short bed (dcsb) Prerunner configuration that I have. I like and need the cab space, I like the maneuverability of the shorter wheel base and I don't have a want or need for 4 wheel drive. I wouldn't have been happy with the 4 banger and because the wife needs to drive it and she told me that her knee had enough clutch it had to be auto. I like the higher stance of the Prerunner even though since both of us are short and 66 it requires a little more effort to get in than the standard dcsb.

As they say your results may vary. Put some thought into it and get everything you want. You won't find anything better than Toyota quality even though you may find a few on this forum that are having some problems.

Thank you for your service and welcome to from TX. I've always liked the 1st gen shape and proportions, but I got a 2nd gen and I have no regrets. The 2nd gens the perfect size, not to big like the ridiculous enormity of the full size trucks now days. The only mistake about a Tacoma is joining Tacoma World, you will spend countless hours thinking about modding the truck that you thought was perfect.
