My previous taco was 97 basic 2wd. I didn't respect it enough as it was a hand-me-down, but I bought a 2006 taco back in October 2012 and I'm LOVING the upgrade.
I will post pics a new thread some time soon. I might have *ahem cheated ahem* by buying the taco with its current mods but I have a lot of learning and work ahead of me!
I'm a software engineer but I love outdoor stuff too. Been gold mining in CA as a hobby for about 15 years or so.
Glad to be here and from what I've read already, seems like a great place for taco owners. I'm here to stay for a while!
