    Hey everyone! I am looking at getting a 2000-20004 tacoma, access cab or double cab. I definitely want the TRD Off road package so I can have the selectable rear locker. Anything else I should make sure to look for? or look out for? I am looking at a 2002 double cab with 98k miles. Thats pretty much all that is for sale in my entire state of Arizona right now... It would seem these tacomas are hard to come by. :confused: Thanks for the input!

    only big things to look for are frame rust. and the timing belt usually goes anywhere after 90k. other than that I would suggest a 5 speed just because from my experience the auto is a little sluggish. but thats all opinion. have fun and good luck!
