    Hey,
    Im brand new into the world of Tacomas and hopefully looking to buy one. I know little to nothing about buying a truck or anything that goes along with it. What do I need to know? Any info I can get will be a huge help!! Thanks.

    - frame: check for rust
    - prerunner: engage rear diff locker (not at speed)
    - 4x: engage
    - under the hood: look for overspray
    - leafs: look for sag
    - drive: be hard on the brakes to check for axle wrap [occurs on take-off] and steering shimmy [occurs on braking]
    - the rest...have a trusted mechanic give it the once-over.

    welcome! :wave:
