    Hi just joined the community. I inherited a 2000 Taco from my dad. Its a single cab 4wd automatic with the larger 4 banger and it has less than 80,000 miles on her. BUT, I was just informed it won't pass state inspection this June because the frame is falling apart. Does anyone know of anyone who does repairs on this or does it just get junked??? No rust on the body, no rips in the upholstery etc., etc…. And runs like a top. I live in Chesapeake, VA. Any help would be most appreciated.

    Welcome to TW. Really that sucks. I wish you the best of luck. Depending on how bad it is, you might need to do a frame swap to keep it safe. You may be able to find a welder that's willing to work on it. Really man, best of luck.
