    My first vehicle was a 1983 Toyota Pickup with 192k miles.

    It was a great little truck. That 22r was bulletproof.

    A few vehicles in between, I then went to the car world via a Subaru WRX STI. It was fun, but it wasn't a truck.

    Now
    I'm in a 07 DC 4X4 TRD Off Road with 22k miles. Picked it up last week. :D :D

    I love this thing.

    See you guys around.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Now I get to call Toyota and see if my recalls and TSB's were performed.

    This recall doesn't sound fun:

    "ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH FOUR WHEEL DRIVE, A SECTION OF THE REAR PROPELLER SHAFT MAY HAVE BEEN IMPROPERLY CAST. "

    Another concern is the leaf-spring TSB.

    Quick question, if I have Auto LSD, then I do not have a mechanical limited slip rear dif right? I just want to confirm as I will be performing the 30k mile service next, which recommends changing the limited slip rear diff oil.

    It's hard to find specs on an old truck.
