Boom. Finally got a Taco. An introduction.

Hey TW. Name is Brian and Im from Nashville TN.
Been wanting to get a Yota for some time now. Started off with a small obsession for the FJs....though it lacked some small necessary features(and was out of my budget).
Although I decided the Tacoma would be the perfect fit for me, I was happy with my car which Ive had since 2001 and was paid off. Well, the car finally died in May and the search began..
Of course I wanted a 4x4, but the necessities were any un-modded, 1st gen DC. It was a tough hunt, and I even drove 6 hours only to see a rusted out truck and drive 6 hours back home.
Ended up finding my 2003 Prerunner close to home. A little higher miles than I was wanting, but I got a great deal on it so couldnt be passed up. Seems to have been well taken care of.
Enough talk, heres a quick pic:


and a pic of my last vehicle:



The VW was modded from day 1 and saw many stages. I will really miss it, but the Taco will allow me to make it places I couldnt before. Im an avid outdoor enthusiast and enjoy climbing, mountain biking, canoeing, and hiking. If youre in the area, and are into any of that, give me a shout!

Sorry for being long winded. Thanks for reading. TW has already given me great info and I must resist dropping big money on the Taco....for now at least.

If you talking about the frame recall. as long as itís Been in TN itís whole life and taken care of, rust should not be much of a problem.

Yea, frame and undercarriage look great! The one in Ohio I looked at.....not so much. Was surprised the truck was still together.

Thanks for the welcomes

Congrats, sounds pretty much like my situation. Been wanting a 1st gen Tacoma DC for as long as I can remember, finally found one a couple days ago. They are harder to find than I thought, and cost about three times as much as my Jeep. Have fun with it man!

Couple quick questions:
-Any recommendations on how to remove the 3m protectant on the rear fender? If you can see, mine looks pretty rough and Goo Gone didnt do much.
-Where can I get an OEM roof rack?

Thanks!
