    Ok im turing 16 soon and want a 4 door trd sport. I was wodering if it would be a good truck. I do a lot of motocross racing and like to wakeboard so i dont know if a dirtbike will fit in a short bed. Once i get a tacoma i plan on having some fun in the snow with it too. Also should i get a manual? I want one but some people tell me it is a pain to tow with one, and my other friends that have a manual say its fun to drive, but i dont plan on towing a lot with it. I can only spend $13,000 on it so help me out here.

    I got mine for 13 something after everything with 110k on it. You won't get a 4wd for that price.. that's for sure.

    you won't get a 2nd gen for that price and 4x4 with EVERYTHING your wanting.... ESPECIALLY the Sport. Try finding a 1st gen 4x4 double cab. They don't make those in manual transmissions though. The manual will get 2-4 mpg better, depending on driving, than the auto will. Good luck with the search.

    EDIT: I have been looking at this one my self. It is down here in alabama and I know it's a drive, 2-3 days, but you could have it shipped to you. Your dirtbike will fit in the back

    yea i would say get a 1st gen 4 door (2001-2004 is when they made the 1st gen 4 door). i love my first gen. not as powerfull or big as the 2nd gen but thats why i can fit more places than those trail limos
