    Hey everyone, havnt purchased yet but will research this forum to make sure I learn as much as possible before before I pull the trigger. New to the truck world as well, but my recent love for dirt bikes has me realized my needs for a truck. Ive narrowed down to a second generation Tacoma TRD double cab (havnt decided on 4x4 or not yet). Ill probably purchase in the next month or two, so all suggestions/opinions are welcome.

    Ive been searching the forum and havnt found a sticky for Pre Purchasing FAQ's or known issues with specific years/models. If anyone cant point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

    Im a regular at M3forum.net so im accustomed to forum rules and more importantly the search function ;)

    TIA
