    Agreed, that's why I put a 95-97 front end on my 98.

    Just do what Tim did - do a cab swap on your 98 to make it a DCLB with a 95-97 front end with a 5MT.
    Then sell the 2004 for more than you paid with the current used/sellers market.

    I wasn't sure where to ask so here goes: I'm taking someone to Colorado to camp over Memorial Weekend who's never been in the Rocky Mountains before. I want to take them somewhere that really shows off Colorado and plan to sleep in my topper. I was thinking Kebler Pass but wasn't sure how accessible that'll still be in late May? Also open to any recommendations closer to Denver as I'll be coming from Nebraska. (Feel free to PM me if you don't want to give spots publicly.)

    Man, I swear I can smell better after quitting smoking than I did prior. But then again I'm pretty sure I started stealing my parents ciggies before I figured out how to have adventure time in the shower, so nevermind.

    Thinking of ordering new brake pads and rotors soon. I had my front end rebuilt last weekend and they showed me my brakes are on their way out. I'm not sure what to get. Someone on the main 2nd gen forum mentioned EBC yesterday I think. This is a 2010 TRD OR 4x4 with 158k miles on it. Wondering if I need to replace the calipers too?

    All right you guys, what is a "fully built", lol, 96 tacoma, with 34's, 4.88 gears, topper, resealed gaskets and things, the truck is good to go for another 1/4 million miles, worth?
    Kelly bb is awfully low and i disagree with it.
    I was thinking 13k for the truck. Am i way off base?

    i wasn't a fan of EBC, mine did not last very long maybe 25-30k worked fine just not long lasting had green pads. I ended up going back to stock kind of. But i ran down a rabbit hole and read a thread about the red TRD pads with stoptech rotors so currently running those and like them so far we will see how long they last.

    Hell, I just replace my pads every 100k miles and call it good. It ain't a race car.

    Right, I don't want to spend a ton of money on brakes for a Tacoma. I'm just thinking of replacing whatever needs to be replaced with maybe a mild upgrade.

    If you have to replace everything, might as well do the 4runner brake swap. I did it a few months back, world of difference with the larger rotors/calipers.

    Alpine loop, they didn't get much snow this winter and I heard at least Cinnamon pass should be open shortly.
