    Just sold my GMC, I want a Toyota Tacoma TRD 4X4. I went to Toyota but the trucks were very expensive. I have found some used 2014 and 2013 for a pretty good deal on craigslist. Any suggestion anyone?

    If you've found "pretty good deals" on Craigslist, something's wrong with the deal. Toyota trucks are expensive and stay expensive.

    I know I will definitely buy a Tacoma. My fiancé has a Rav4 and a Highlander. I fell in love with Toyotas. I found some Tacoma's already lifted which I plan to do. Should I stay stock and lift it myself?

    If you want the truck to offroad (or just perform better), I would recommend staying away from spacers, blocks, drop brackets, and stay with suspension style lifts. Valid for new or used. I would try and buy the closest to what you want. Saves money that way.

    This from an old fart who's been there and done that: Stay away from anything that looks like it's been owned by a kid. I know, you're a kid and most guys on this forum are kids, but everyone should agree that kids typically tend to disrespect vehicles, pushing them to extremes, doing shit that will damage any vehicle. Even the so called Mall Crawlers can be a piece of shit with safety issues and of course, an invalid warranty.

    But then, you're a kid and you have to make your own mistakes, so forget you ever read my advice.
