    I'm selling my 1996 Tacoma. This thing is awesome and drives amazing. I'm in the market for a new car. I haven't owned this truck for too long, I bought it in April down in Arizona. Before me there were 2 owners. Each owner owned the vehicle for approximately 10-11 years each in Southern California and Arizona, so the body has little to no rust. It has a light blue color to it with a matching LEER topper that has a Thule rack on top, carpeted inside. The best part about this truck is it's low miles (in the Tacoma world) at only ~144k. Automatic 4 speed with the 2.7L 4 Cylinder 3RZ-FE engine. It is a 4x4 with manual locking hubs. This truck has a ton of brand new parts put into it and I have all receipts and documentation for everything listed here:

    Engine Parts:
    -Distributor Cap and Rotor
    -NGK Spark Plugs
    -NAPA Spark Plug Wires
    -Transmission Fluid Cooler Hose
    -OEM Fuel Injectors
    -Aftermarket Exhaust Manifold (the old one was cracked)
    -NAPA Air Filter

    Suspension is upgraded as well, the truck has a 2.5” lift with several components:
    -Brand New BF Goodrich All Terrain K2's. 31.50 size - these things are in great shape
    -Aftermarket 15” steel rims with locking hubs
    -Bilstein 5100 shock absorbers for the front and rear. These are incredible and literally brand new! Less than 1000 miles on them.
    -1" top coil spacer in front
    -Old Man Emu CS020R Leaf Springs in the rear. These springs are heavy duty and can carry a constant load of 440lbs without any bend to them.
    -Extended rear brake line
    -3 Degree Steel shims
    -Wheelers 7.75" U-bolts
    -Exhaust pipe extended bracket

    Shortly after purchasing the truck I got a cylinder 2 misfire, after tons of replacing parts, my mechanic finally concluded that it was a burnt exhaust valve on cylinder 2 causing the misfire. Instead of just replacing the valve, we replaced the entire cylinder head and this thing is running like a champ. With this head swap, we put in all new internal gaskets. Every single gasket replaced was Toyota OEM and all silicon sealants were Toyota OEM. I have receipts for all of this. Essentially, the cylinder head on this truck is brand new. This consists of but is not limited to:

    New Gaskets:
    -Remanufactured Cylinder Head from Pennsylvania's cylinderhead.com
    -Head Gasket
    -Exhaust Manifold Gasket
    -Intake Manifold upper and lower Gaskets
    -Valve Cover Gasket
    -Spark Plug Tube Gaskets
    -EGR Pipe Gaskets
    -Throttle Body Gasket
    -Other smaller gaskets like fuel rail spacers and injector o-rings as well as injector insulators and cups

    Audio:
    -Kenwood player with Bluetooth/AUX/USB
    -Kenwood speakers
    -Custom Tweeters

    Fluids I've changed a couple fluids within the last 3,000 miles that don't regularly need to be changed, so I thought it was worth noting:
    -Both front and rear differentials as well as transfer case have been changed to Amsoil Severe Gear 75w-90
    -Brake Fluid
    -Coolant
    -Also has rubber grey floor mats in front and back

    Selling for $10,500. I'm just trying to break even here with all of the money that I've put into this truck with all of the new parts. I feel like this is a good deal in comparison to most 96's out there. Typically you don't see one with this low of miles.

    I hope this thing goes to a good home, it is a beautiful truck that runs strong. I'm just finally ready to buy something newer and make car payments. Feel free to give me a call/text anytime to discuss. My number is 386-214-0536

    Thanks, Austin
