    Hey guys,

    My name is Don and I am from Mobile, Alabama and I own a 1995 Toyota Tacoma with 300,000+ miles and still running strong.

    Looking forward to some good advice from you guys when I need it.

    Yes, it is the original motor. No major mechanical issues and just general maintenance, knock on wood (knock, knock).

    I am about to replace the timing chain within the next couple of weeks.

    Ok, here is a picture of the 'ole girl. Taking her down to get some new tint on the windows this week, as you can tell it has turned purple. She is also in need of a paint job as the paint is starting to oxodize.

    Sorry for the poor quality picture, it was taken with my phone.

    Thanks guys I appreciate it. I will take some better pics with my digital camera when I get home and post those.

    Believe it or not a take this truck into the woods almost every weekend.

    I would like to put a 2" lift and swap out the tires and rims but just haven't found any rims that I am dying to buy yet. I would like to go with black rims.

    I know I should post this in the appropriate forum but thought I would ask anyway. :D Any suggestions on what type of lift would be suitable?

    My 95 Tacoma had 145,000 miles when it went to the crusher with the rusted out frame. I would still be driving it today if it wasn't for that. The inline 4 banger motor still looked new and not a leak anywhere.

    Don, you are my hero..... If I can get 300,000 out of my truck I will be so happy. And if it looks like yours does, I'll be even happier. Good to have you and welcome to TW!!!

    Not far from me at all. I plan on driving this thing until the wheels fall off or the engine drops out, which ever comes first. If the engine goes first I will just put another one it and keep on rollin'. :cool:
