    Hey guys I am checking in from Tucson AZ, just picked up my first Tacoma and I already love it! I am the 4th (technically 3rd since 2 was son and 3 was his father) owner of a 1996 Toyota Tacoma Sr5 4x4! It has 250k on the clock and around 150k on the 3.4 from an 03. Anyways, it drives tight and looks good so here is some pics! All stock minus 31s!

    First fill up after the 2 hour drive to Phoenix AZ to pick it up (loving the gas prices btw)

    And some pics after i washed it at home. Haven't detailed it yet! Also if you have any input on how to improve the paint fade/ oxidization on the hood let me know!

    If you are VERY attentive you can spot my neighbors lifted 97-00 Taco a few cars back in this pic!

    And here is that fade i was mentioning.

    And I don't expect much love for this on here, but here is my inferior American car. 97 Gt with 62xxx miles on it. I suck at pictures, and I apologize for it!

    Looks great!

    But i do not think there is any fixing that paint on the hood. Looks like its gone through the clear coat. Best bet would be to take it to a paint shop and have them repaint it.
