    Hey everyone. I'm looking to buy my first truck and I found a 2002 tacoma trd 4x4 5speed with 126,000 miles on it. I'm not looking for anything perfect, but is there anything I should be worried about before I even get too involved with buying the truck? I am kinda a newb to the truck world, I never owned one before. I don't travel far usually... Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks

    Also inspect the suspension. Check to see if the leafs in the back are sagging and check the front struts to see if they're worn out.
