    I've owned a few Toyota pickups well before the Tacoma days. My Jeep just blew a motor, so now I'm looking to buy a Tacoma. I'll most likely end up with a 99 to 02 due to my budget. I joined here to learn the Pros & Cons of the different models. 4cyl vir 6cyl, 2wd vir 4wd, and any known issues/problems. I know it's gotta be an auto trans, and either extra cab, or double.....:D


    I've been lurking, and already I learned about the chassis rust problem on the pre 01 Tacomas.......:)

    LOL, yeah, watch what ya wish for. I was talkin to the wife about a month ago about selling the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and buying a Tacoma. 2 weeks later, bamb, the motor went. Not worth fixing, so I sold it yesterday. Now I have my bike to commute to work on nice days, and if it rains I use her car. I can't buy a truck until after the 1st of July though, so I have time to learn about these things. I've been looking for 2 weeks, and it looks like for my budget, it'll be a 99 to 02 with around 90K+ miles on it.

    No big loss on the Jeep. With 183K miles, it was time to put her down.
