    Had a 2nd gen for awhile while I was in college (parents helped with payments) but sold it after I graduated and took over payments. Just now got back into a Tacoma and am loving it. I have always wanted a 1st gen and finally a 4x4! :D

    Day I brought it home:

    Got the MOD bug again and have so many plans for this thing! Also plan on moving out to SoCal this summer o.0

    Holy crap! HAH! I'm glad you guys noticed that... I honestly never even saw that and couldn't tell you why that's on there?! Maybe a replacement tailgate at some point? That is really strange....

    the last owner could have replaced the tailgate with one from a prerunner. Your sig thingy says limited. I though limited has chrome mirrors?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    Yeah you might want to start checking other things does it have the rear Diff locker button? Just in case they put the TRD badges on the truck as well. Maybe a dumb question but you do have the 2 shifters right.

    Haha ya, I'm sure it was more of a replacement for a small incident and he didn't even notice the PreRunner badge or at least think anything of it..

    Thanks! :cool:
