    Hey guys first post here! I've been lookin for the right tacoma for a long time while I saved up money for one. In all of my searches I've yet to find the one I want, let alone in my price range... I really want a first gen double cab v6 4wd manual... Do they not make them manual or are they just very rare? Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm not sure what I will decide if I have to choose between double cab or a manual =/ Thanks tacomaworld!:rolleyes:

    I had a first Gen 03 double cab and I loved it to death... The auto performed brilliantly, even here in the Montana mountains. I would get the dub cab, you'll be happy you did.

    I wish I had a manual trans, I love being able to control all the shifts and being able to control my speed. But I'd rather have an auto double cab than a 5spd extra cab.
