    Hey guys, looking/buying an 06 tacoma, black, 4x4, long bed, trd sport(of course, if it is a long bed) 96k miles. Has the JBL. Has a tool box, everything else is stock.
    He said he put 60k miles on the tires(don't know the brand) and said they have over 80% left. that sounds crazy to me. I could get it for 14k ish. He is in Northern VA

    Also the back sliding rear window was broken by a softball. How hard is it to install/find one of these? Just the sliding part. Could I get one for under 200?

    Also how is the 4x4 on the limited slip? Id much rather have the locking..oh well.
    I may put a lift on it(3in, just spacer and aal probably) what is the biggest tire i could do with minor rubbing on the stock wheels. 285? 305?

    Lastly, what are the major problems that go wrong with these trucks I should look at? Blower squeak, anything else?

    Thanks a lot guys..

    Not sure how hard to replace the back window or if it would be the whole thing or just the sliding part. Lots of pics of trucks with 3 in lifts. It's probably the most popular on here. I believe with a 3 in lift and 285s you'll have to do some trimming to keep from rubbing, but I don't have first hand experience, just what people have posted.

    thanks for the response. I searched for a thread on them and couldn't find one. I found one for the 6in lifted trucks though.

    he also said the compass and thermometer doesn't work and needs a fuse replaced. Ever happened to anyone?

    .
    There's a thread on the Compass/temp fix, it's most likely a resistor on the temp circuit board. 285's will need some trimming at 3 inches, probably ditch the front flaps and do a cab mount chop

    You can easily run 285's (33" nittos) with a 3" kit (pro comp) That's what I have. All I did was remove the mudflaps... They are crap anyways... and trim some of the black fender liner away. They would rub at full turn. No need for a cab mount chop unless your running 35" tires. check out my build (click on my picture below) for pics..
