    Originally had a 2002 Taco TRD last year, then sold it to get my 2006 TRD, however, just sold the 2006 and picked up this 2003 today lol

    Has 185k miles, ONE OWNER, with every single service record available. All receipts for oil changes, tire rotations, service work, fluid services, 15k miles services etc... I was very pleased. Interior looks like NEW. Exterior is in good shape with the exception of some rust/scraping on front bumper

    Does anybody know a cheap place on the web to get a new front bumper, not the valance, but the actual bumper?

    Here she is. Probably will do deck plate mod and BHLM soon.

    Honestly, nothing. I absolutely loved the 2nd gen. It has been my favorite truck I've had out of the 12 vehicles I've owned. Very comfortable ride, good power. But! I have student loans I will have to start paying on within the year, so trying to reduce debt and my monthly car payment.

    Owed $16,000 on my 06, I bought my 03 for $7700. So cut the debt in half. I'm going to miss the 06, but I'll buy a brand new Taco when the loans are paid off :D
