    From Southen Indiana.
    Just purchased an 04 PreRunner V6.
    158k on the clock.
    Clean as a whistle inside and out (aside frm several rock chips on hood front).
    Had a 99 PreRunner 4cyl from about 2001-2003 or so.

    Looking to put in a timing belt (original AFAIK).
    Needs shocks and struts too.

    Anyone in Evansville want to help with timing belt or any advice?

    Thx

    Thanks. I am trying to sell my custom 1987 Jeep Wrangler YJ/TJ Morph to fund the Taco. Anyone interested?

    Love the Taco.... And my frame only has some light surface rust so far. ha

    Anyone know if undercoating or aftermarket rust prevention will negatively impact the extended warranties that are (rumored to be coming) for 2001-2004s?

    Are you thinking about getting it done or has it been done already?

    The reason I ask is if you get the frame inspected and it passes, I think they are treating the frames with some sort of rust preventative.

    I was considering having it undercoated or some type of preventative measures done.
    But, I'll take theirs if free !
    Do you have more info on this or should I just dig thru the forums?

    Thanks
