    Hey all...just wanted to say hello and I look forward to chatting with all of you.

    I just bought my very first Toyota of any kind, and therefore my first Toyota Truck. It's nothing fancy, but I wanted something to knock around in on weekends, do some light hauling and work around the house, and just generally have a little fun.

    It's a 1999 SR5 Tacoma 4WD with the 3.4L and std tranny. It's got well over 100K miles on it, but I think I got a pretty good deal on it. I only have one pic so far, and I took it with my blackberry kind of late yesterday, so it's not great, but there it is anyway. I'm going to take off the bed cap, btw.

    So if any of you can point me to some good reading and resource material on my particular year/model/engine/tranny, I'd sure appreciate it. Also, if there are any tips on things to look for, trouble spots, service issues, or hidden gems, I'd love to hear those.

    Finally, what do you call this cab type? It's the one with the jumper seats behind the front seats but no back doors or partially opening side doors.

    TIA all!!! :)

    Welcome. To answer one of your questions I believe it is a extended cab...? not sure though but you will find plenty of information. Browse over to the 1st gen thread and you will "find a TON of info" as brunes said. Also if you are in the market for a lift or tires, check those subforms out as well if you havn't already!
