    Obviously, being a 1996, this truck uses R-134a in the air-conditioner; I looked under the hood of a 1994 Toyota pickup at a car show last November, and it came from the factory with R134a, and the 1992 pickup that I took pictures of last month had R-12. I'm assuming that 1993 would have been the last year for R-12...? As I said before, the A/C in this truck does not presently work; It likely only needs a charge, but as someone whose Tacoma went through an evaporator core replacement back in 2018, I can tell you that there's most definitely a leak somewhere. Honestly, a better case scenario would be that the compressor is locked up and needs to be replaced, which is also not a cheap fix, but it means that the system doesn't have any leaks...

    This truck is probably the most expensive 1st gen regular cab Toyoyta ever produced.

    I'm guessing, could you get the Super Charger from the factory, or dealer installed accessory?

    Probably dealer-installed; The owner wasn't even aware that a supercharger was a thing until I told him!

    It had every option 1995 had to offer so I wouldn't doubt it... mine had an aftermarket radio by the time I got it

    Minus the push button 4x4 and locker

    That one didn't have power mirrors which is interesting... never seem power windows without power mirrors either

    The door activated dome light in my Tacoma was nice

    That IS a rare truck! Great find! I've only seen one other in this exact configuration and it was on Bring a Trailer last year. As you would expect is sold for big $$$.

    I'm literally just under 6 foot and I've been driving one for almost 13 years! How tall are you?

    This is why I put an 8-inch subwoofer in my truck; I was afraid of losing even a tenth of an inch!
