    So I just bought this modded 2002 tacoma from a guy in San Diego. I've never seen anything like it before. It's a 2002 PreRunner SR5 Stepside TRD *phew*

    So it has match painted bumpers, smaller matching flairs, mirrors, and door handles. Its a 2.7l w/ automatic transmission. Seems like a pretty high level of trim.

    But then, it has manual locks/mirrors/windows and no cruise control!

    What the heck was this thing custom ordered maybe?

    the color matching was a package...except i didnt know the mirrors were included...most color matched packages ive seen were grill shell, bumpers, door handles, and flares

    all the electronic doodads like window controls/locks etc wouldve been a sep. package

    the stepside bed is a factory bed...but not a popular one...not many are out there

    very cool truck :thumbsup:
