    Finally found the truck i have been looking for. I drove a 99 jeep cherokee for 4 years and always wanted a Tocoma. I found an 03 with 117k and love it so far.
    Anything i should take a second look at that might be specific to this model tacoma?

    thanks

    Welcome to the good life of using your tools to mod your truck and not fix it ;)

    Go to the junk yard, i think the 95-04 are allinterchangeable, i could be wrong tho..... Um it just pops off, just bring a flathead screwdriver..... If you dont find your coloryou can always sand and repaint it.

    Wrong.

    You need a phillips.

    One side is held on by a clip, other side is a screw.


    Nice truck.

    Was way low on gas and wanted to see if the gas light was working.
    So I drove around the block a few extra times and got the light to finally come on then it dims out.
    Is that all it does?

    that's a nice foundation to start on. the gas light will come one, but it goes off initially.
