    I am about to trade my eclipse for a 96 regular cab automatic 2wd tacoma. I live in NC, working on moving to vegas. This will be my 35th vehicle but the first truck.

    I forgot to mention the truck has a blown head gasket, busted radiator, and the engine bay is brown from them running water + the radiator. But the frame is spotless.

    I was hesitant at first, but I looked at autotrader, ebay, and some other sites and saw how much they are going for and how many people want them. I need a truck as many times as I have needed to pick up an engine or haul something, I figured even if it needs a new engine it's worth it.

    I got a lot of lurking to do. I want to put a 5 speed in it, I hate automatics.
