    I'm Jesse.

    Just purchases a 2010 Metallic grey Tacoma TRD Sport, Double Cab 145K miles. It has 33's. In 2018 the frame was replaced by recall. also so was the leaf springs, brake lines and front lower control arms. all fluids and belts. Plus front Passenger axle.
    Got it for $11,500 in Upstate Ny. I was looking for a stock one pretty much. But this one caught my eye. Lost of parts on it. Some of it isn't my flavor but really liking this thing so far. Three are some things to fix and address, but in really good shape. Bought it from a 23 year old and I'm 43 so, it was treated like a 23 year old owned it. He was a Dirt Bike kids and it shows. Dents and scratches allover but at least I don't have to baby it.Dents in the roof and burn holes in the seats drive me nuts. But I own a Tacoma and its pretty awesome.

    Suspention and wheels
    Rough Country 2-3 inch lift leveling kit
    Red Dirt Road 17x9 rims
    33x12.5 x 17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers
    Spider trex 1.25 spacers
    rear 5100 Bilstein shocks
    Stock Bilsteins up front


    Motor
    MBRP stainless cat back exhaust
    K&N cold air intake

    Looks
    Bageless grill, made by him says "Yota"
    Spyder Halo Projector Headlights
    led light bar in bumper
    led roof mount Led light bar-Roof mounted "ouch"
    Black Bull bar
    Led under dash lights
    Pioneer Double din CD player w/ Bluetooth
    Rockford 6x9 Front Speakers
    Pioneer 6.5 resr speakers

    Has some issues, Tires are on their way out. Rims went through 4 years of Upstate Ny winters so showing signs of wear.
    ABS light is on- code C0210,C0215,C1238,
    Brake light is on
    Traction control light is on- Code U0123, U0073,U0124,U0126
    Passanger airbag light is on
    Code P0505

    Getting an NY Inspection on Wed and tires rotated and balanced to sort out the wobble at 50 mph. Planning on gettign new tires before winter thinking 33's but might even go down to 16's with 285/76/16's

    Just trying to enjoy it and fix all i can. I want all the lights off and abs and brakes working , Plus airbag light. I'm really excited about this trick and researching till all hours of the night.

    Please give me input on what you like and don't like, What to address and your experience with any of the codes.

    Plenty more posts to come I'm sure. I have always been a car guy, owning 4 Vw's old and new.

    As much as I love the price and hate to rain on your parade, I’d question how much he beat on it for 140k miles.

    I’ve always believed you get what you pay for....

    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    Before you spend money on tires or even an alignment, check the wear of your ball joints and steering components. Very good chance they're worn - wide tires and spacers are hell on that stuff.

    Other than that, I really don't like bull bars.

    EDIT: PS. Looks like a good truck to start with though - nothing that can't be fixed.

    The ABS & traction control codes would be a priority (over tires) for me. New frame, looks like a good deal.

    Thanks for all the input and comments. I will agree. Original owner got the truck with 40k miles used for $24k in 2013. At the age of 17, till 23. He used the hell out of it. It also took as good of care of it that a young man would. 3 sets of tires. I drive 10k a year. So plenty of life left. Just some things to address. I also talked him down on the price. The $ I gave him he went and got a 2016 Tacoma TRD. It was an hour away and I thought about it long and hard as to whether I should even buy. But I no longer have a expensive lease now and a new toy and hobby. Like I needed another one.
    The 10k plus in repairs from Toyota sealed the deal. Thinking hat might have something to do the the rear wheel sensors showing codes. I was reading that they can’t be stretched. Bought Tech Stream and obd2 kit this past weekend to check all the codes. Thinking airbag might be connection under the seat or needs To be recalibrated, as well as the wheel sensors.

    Turning my Base into an SR5 one piece at a time
    I'm in a 2010 DCLB base that I've been slowly but surely transitioning to an SR5 with various parts from the TW Marketplace and other sellers. As a guy who's partial to a stock looking truck, I'd say what you've got is way out of my league. But if you're interested in shedding some of those mods and bringing it back closer to stock, you're in the right place.

    I'm not much of a wrench man myself, but I've found tons of useful info here on TW for those times when I decide to wade in and get greasy. As well, you're bound to find some great prices on parts that other users are selling.

    Welcome!

    For what it’s worth a faulty left front impact sensor was the cause of my airbag light

    I'd suggest putting fluid film or similar rust inhibitor on the frame. Also, nerf bars tend to enhance low speed damage because they easily will roll in and hit the grill.

    Concernining your C0215, I'm having the exact same issue with my 07 Taco. Dealership checked it out and they have no clue what's wrong, that is after replacing the rear left speed sensor in question, replacing the bearings on the left front and rear, and checking the speed sensor wiring, fuse, etc. Good luck finding out what it is. If I find out, I will follow up with this and post it here. My local dealership is filing a ticket for assistance with mo-bettah mechs to see if they know what is wrong, and if a recall needs to be thrown in the mix or whatever.


    Follow-up
    check out this thread, it may be an answer for your C0215 issue, at least.

    Check out the drain hose from your HVAC box it drains on top of your new frame. Not a good start . I stuck a piece of heater hose over it and ran it farther down and zip tied it to the frame so it drips directly on the ground
