    I'm not fooling anyone, I have no idea what I'm doing beyond standard vehicle maintenance. Most of the previous modifications were done by previous owners. All maintenance done by local shop. Purchased at 228k miles for $3900; younger ~120k 2.7L engine installed at 230k for $9k...ouch. 31" Toyo Open Country M/T Replaced previous shocks/struts with KYB Monomax at 233k miles. Looks to have a 3" body lift in rear. Leaf springs seem to be sagging quite a bit. Currently have a rattling left front wheel (I'm told it's the CV joint and/or axle). Goals: Fix front left CV issue. (Diff drop?) Refresh leaf springs. Build a sleeping platform for comfort camping/base camp. (Auxiliary power?) Replace bench seat with 60/40 preferably or reupholster. Tackle more trails. Improve ride without excessive modifications to classic look. Debating winch/light bar. Don't break more things. Competing interests: Possibly want to buy a house(boat?) Want to enjoy the PNW non-motorized outdoors. Want to acquire pricey toys to propel myself down mountains.
    Quick hello here at 4 am Pacific time! I've had my 96 Tacoma 4x4 for a little over a year now. We've already had some disagreements but hopefully I'll be able to take better care of her now.

    Brought it back to life after it was neglected for a little while
    From Ontario, Canada here! Picked up and brought back to life a 2006 Tacoma AC 4x4 4banger Manual trans (US Vehicle), I’m still working on it but she’s almost ready to go! Keeping most of it stock as much as possible.

    After 15 years of being a very loyal GM owner, Colorado's, Canyons, and a Silverado. I finally made the switch. Picked a 2021 Trail Special Edition a few weeks ago. Glad I waited to find this gem but at the same time I wish I would have done this sooner.
