    Hey Gang..


    I don't own a Tacoma yet.. I am no stranger to car forums and know the value members input can have in searching for a new vehicle.

    Leaving my Ls1 Camaro world behind, to get into a vehicle more suited to get my Kayaks into those hard to reach places...

    Have a look at my old ride. http://houston.craigslist.org/cto/3860392960.html

    It's up for trade for a Tacoma if there are any interests. :p


    Wanted to say hello before I dug into the search bar ! I am here looking for more info on 2000-2013 models.

    Happy trails guys, glad to be here.

    I don't need, but would like to have.

    Living in Houston Tx, there are limited needs for 4wd. The only one off the top of my head I can think of is beach camping.

    My budget is the controlling factor. Looking to spend no more than $15,000.. Coming out of a military Salary to full time college budget sucks.. Still a blessing to be in college and a year out from starting grad school.

    Youll be hard pressed to find a 2nd gen with under 150,000 that is 4x4. If i were you id look into buying a bare minimum.

    The mileage doesn't bother me so much, but what you say is true. So I should stick with looking for a 2nd gen?

    The truck I posted above has around 150k miles and is 13k

    If milage isnt an issue and you dont have a certain model in mind then i would keep a better eye out pertaining to what year i like the most. 06-07 was the best for me because it wasnt the guinea pig but it also didnt have all the crap the newer models have these days. I knew for a fact i wanted a TRD sport. Had to be a double cab and had to be 4x4. The rest didnt matter much. Just ended up finding the perfect fit with a couple added extra bonuses :D

    When it comes down to it at the end of the day man, Its what you want to wake up to everyday, What you want to drive daily and exactly what you want to do with it purpose wise.

    Amen dude, I like the look of the 2nd gens a tad more. I just am very surprised so many prefer the 01-04.

    Its the main reason i LOVE the tacoma. I can either go fast, Go slow and everywhere i can go low i can go big... I can have a limo or i cant have a practically new school el camino haha.

    This is why Toyota gained so much pop and rep is because there is literally a truck for every class.
    Off road,
    Trailer Queen,
    Bro'ed,
    Dropped,
    Slammed,
    Quick and sleek,
    Sleepers...

    You name it and i guarantee if you go through the right vendors you make the truck EXACTLY what you want it to be. Your move Ridgeline ;)
