    Has anybody ever heard that the pre-first gens were called Tacomas on the owners manual? I had a buddy who had a pre-first gen that he called a Tacoma and I corrected him and told him it was a pickup and he said that the owners manual said Tacoma on it. Just wondering if anyone else has ever heard this or knows of this.

    As far as I know, the pre-1995 trucks were the worldwide Hilux, which was simply know in the USA as Toyota Pickup. Is this guy the original owner of the "pre-tacoma"? If not, my guess is someone lost the real manual along the way and replaced it with that.

    Looks like a 95. It looks OK. I'm not really one for silver rims, if you are going to get aftermarket rims.
