    Hello and Greetings from Kansas,

    First off, this is a great site with lots of great advice and recommendations. Many thanks to those who take the time to post.
    It is a little overwhelming and I am finding out I have lots to learn.

    Purchased the truck for my wife as a graduation present. It is a 99 Tacoma Ext. Cab, 4X4, AT, with a 2.7L. It has 63K and the prior owners slacked on the preventive maintenance. No mods at this point and in need of general upkeep as this will be her daily driver. We enjoy working on our vehicles so this is sure to be fun for both of us once we get over the initial list of things that need to be taken care of before regular driving can occur.

    I am trying to figure out which forums are appropriate and how to determine which parts (transmission, transfer cases, and so on are in the vehicle) As a newbie to the Toyota Tacoma world can someone please clarify for me which generation of truck I have and any other helpful tips that will help guide my initial learning. I have looked at the forums and each time I think I have some of the foundational pieces I read something else and realize I am lost again.

    We are looking forward to many happy years of ownership and learning from those who have gone before us.

    Thanks,
    PO
