    I just picked up an older Tacoma ('96) and LOVE IT. Fantastic little truck so far. Looking forward to chatting with a few other members, getting ideas on upgrades, and browsing the photos! Here are the ad photos for mine:

    Had a '95 5spd 4x4 access cab for years before I traded it in with 270K on it for a 2010. Honestly wish I had kept it to be an offroad truck. You'll love it more and more. Welcome to TW!

    Sure does. That's actually my first item of attention. Live in Michigan, so I'm looking to get a fix on the rust and do an undercoating. Any good ideas? A guy who does body work suggested just cutting the rust out and covering with fender flares.

    Also, thanks for the welcome, all!
