Looking to get another yota

Hi folks.
I'm an old toyota guy who's looking to get a 4x4 Tacoma soon. Been driving a big Dodge Cummins diesel for awhile, and I'm sick of wrenching on the thing so it's time to get back to my roots.
I think the 01-04 is what I'm going for. Anything to look for on these year trucks before I buy? The good, the bad, etc.?
Also, which year did they start making the push button 4x4? I'd like to have the transfer case shifter on the floor if possible, old school style.
Glad to be here, and I look forward to learning more!

Yep, the wrenching NEVER stops. For me, the diesel engine has been flawless. It's just everything else that seems to fall apart or wear out quickly, brakes, ball joints, tie rod ends, plastics everywhere, etc. Dang trucks are heavy!

I owned two Toyotas back in the early 90's, a '93 4 Runner and a '92 extra cab V6. Both were 4x4 and both manual transmissions. The 4 Runner was great, but I couldn't afford the payments so I bought the truck. Truck was awesome until head gaskets starting blowing. Then a new long block went in, and then 30k miles later another head gasket. After that, I was done with it and went the diesel route. Now I'm ready for a newer yota that will hopefully last!

If you want it bad, you usually get it bad!

Welcome aboard from a former '90 extended cab 4X4, 85 4Runner, and '00 Reg cab 4X4 owner. Also went the head gasket route on the '90 (recall). All of them had the "get out and engage" front ends. Loved them all....but really like the '10 I have now...(probably cuz I'm gettin old!) Good luck in your search!
