    I’m 72 now and am on my 4th Tacoma in my life time:thumbsup: Never had a problem with any of them!!!

    Being retired and on fixed-income, I guess my 15-Tacoma will be my last. I’ve got about 49k miles on her now, so looking to break the total mileage record in the far future!

    I am a preventative maintenance nut, so I do try to take care of my equipment!!

    I have totally enjoyed this post and reading of the history of the Original Gen 1 Tacoma’s :oldglory:

    Here was my first truck. My old 95.5 bought it in 2012, sold it in 2017, had over 212k on it and I still see it around town!
    For some reason the passenger door always looked a shade darker than the rest of the truck, maybe from the previous owner.

    I actually removed mine from the truck before I sold it a few years ago. Still have them in my shop, I almost forgot about them.

    I have those RBoards on one of mine. First time I posted pics somebody said those are dealer installed and very rare. Mine are off right now, but still in good condition. Not sure if I will put them back on or not. Styling,....meh.

    Toyota is very confusing when it comes to certain add ons like decals and other little things. An example is, the other day I saw a truck like TacoNick06's, but it had no dome light...None... just a blank. The weird thing was it had options like cruise control and tilt steering wheel. Just lacked the dome light :confused:
