    Officially rolled over 200k today. If you account for the 33's this probably happened a while ago. 20190524_125549.jpg

    I own a 95 Tacoma 4x4 2.7 4cyl 5 speed I have 234,000 miles on mine ,just put in my second clutch but other then that have had a few minor problems , dosent use any oil and still runs great , I did change the differential gears to 4:88 this engine loves those gears and im getting about the same milage as with the stock gears , using 5th gear more now, I had a friend with this same engine that had 325,000 on his and I believe its still going, when this engine does start getting tired I will replace it , don't think I will ever get rid of this truck, I really like it because of its size it will go places that the bigger trucks cant get in to, any way enjoy your truck hope you have as good of luck with it as I have with mine.

    Getting close to 217k on my '00 SR5. It's all original drivetrain- even the clutch!

    On my 97! I had 275xxx on my 91, only thing that stopped her was rolling over, even after that she still ran strong. Regular maintenance will go a long way

    Had a manual 2000 SR5 that got to 265,000. Then one snowy thanksgiving day had someone rear end me in a canyon and totaled it. Gutted.

    Found a 2000 TRD with 1 owner and 100,000 miles and paid a nice premium for it, and hoping to get it to 300,000. What should be my focus points on getting it there?

    My 04 I bought with 208k, and the 99 was bought with 289k. Never had a second thought about buying a Toyota with that many.

    your truck's body looks to be in great shape for Pittsburgh location!
    any chance you are 'eligible' for the 'exclusive' 1st gen Survivor's Club

    i am just hoping that i and my taco are not the only one in this club when/if i hit 200k in the next decade

    your location in MO maybe would initially also qualify for the 'exclusive' 1st gen survivor's club

    Thanks all! It spent most of its life in Portland, OR, which is why the body and frame are in such good shape (no salt on the roads).

    Since I bought it, I've bathed the frame and underbody in Fluid Film to further preserve it. Can't wait to hit 300k! :taco:

    The dreaded frame rust-out. I had 10 months left on the extended 15 year warranty when I found holes in the frame.


    Oh...mine is the limited, so it has the different seats.

    regarding the seats, are yours the one's with manual lumbar adjust or the power? I have the manual lever

    Has your truck been in the same area of MO since it was new? I am pretty sure that the winter climate there is very similar to where I am at in eastern NE but perhaps has more ice storms? ... I am tentatively headed down i70 from my uncle's in Sedalia on July 20th to a TW mod day in the St Louis area. have you heard or been to that? It's mostly 3rd gens but they appear to be friendly to 1st gens in need of TLC to keep on truckin
