    I'm a first time Tacoma owner and a first time pickup owner as well. Its taken me this long to realize that stuffing an acura with 2X4 is a particularly bad idea.

    My wife, who has always loves small cars and hated big ones, only wants to run errands in the pickup. I haven't let her drive it...yet.

    Steve.

    Thankyou for that very warm welcome. I'm quickly becoming a Taco Enthusiast.

    Yesterday: Brushed and sprayed out the bed, changed the bald tire with the brand new spare underneath, vacuumed out the cab (found some ants, hope they go away soon, Note to self, set traps), got info from your forum on how to repair tail light, read and reread tutorial on spark plugs. This '05 tacoma is at 43K and judging from the shape of the tires my guess is that the plugs were never done. Gonna get some new tools, uh-huh.

    Specail thanks to the Canadian brother up north. I grew up in Windsor and lived in Edmonton and Toronto myself before going south. It's an easy country to love, eh?

    This is a very friendly and helpful forum. Glad to be aboard.
