    arent many forums for these so figured id hang out here since the engines the same, just bought the truck last week.

    Heres the 99 mazda b2500 i had for almost 3 years that its replacing, i loved that truck but needed more power and tow capacity, i had to replace the leaf springs twice from putting shit too heavy in the back, and it wasnt the greatest tow rig either lol, thats my dads 59 cj5 hooked up to it
    [​IMG]

    and the new rig, 120k miles on her

    have already added tint and clear bumper lenses (the 84-89's fit, im told they dont make clear corners for these though), window visors are in the mail.

    more pics soon, havent even gotten a chance to wash it yet, been busy at work ... gotta get on the timing belt and water pump too!

    Welcome to TW. At 120k she's just barely broken in. I've got the 3rz-fe and it's at 221k, runs great. :)

    yea it took me forever to find one with lower miles, everything else had over 200k on it ... i decided either a t100 or a silverado, glad i went with the toyota so far

    i wanted a tacoma when i bought the previous mazda but at the time they were way out of my price range.

    Thats a good lookn T op. I love mine and at 255k and running great, I sometimes wonder if it'll outlast the taco. U should be able to find some good technique guides on net about changing your belt. I did mine several years ago and it was a fun project. Good luck!
