    It’s SR5 but has all power except the seats which I prefer. Guessing it was just a dealer add on when it was new. This is how she looks currently, little more “rustic” haha
    I like the 96 grille better

    Yeah that front end is the best looking of em. You just don't see many of those painted front bumpers with matching painted flares. And in that red.... Rare so it Looks freaking good man. :D
    But I like 95-97 fronts too

    Appreciate it man, somehow everything I own ends up being red without even trying. My bike, skis, and truck are all red because they were just the best deal available at the time I was buying. Kinda weird haha, but I like black and red together over any other colors
    I take it that you have an 80 series? Gotta pic? I would trade my double cab for an Aussie diesel 80 series any day :rofl:

    Here in the San Francisco Bay Area I just paid $10.5K (as agent for my son in Utah, his money) a 2003 4x4 SR5 with 111k miles. Super clean, one owner, rust free, originally from Texas, moved to California 10 years ago. It's the non-TRD version, so no bells or whistles (diff lock, ABS, power windows/locks, or cruise control). The paint is perfect. One small shallow indentation on the lower passenger door. I think it's a fair deal given the low miles. The guy had multiple offers within an hour of listing it.

    2002 Taco SR5 PreRunner V6
    I bought my original Taco (2003 Dual Cab SR5 PreRunner V6) brand new from the dealer and I paid about $20,000 for it. In 2016 when a friend of mine was "T-Boned" while driving it, I bought my current Taco (one owner 2002 Dual Cab SR5 PreRunner V6) with 160,000 miles and paid $9,000 for it. Except for the paint, which wasn't bad, it was in superb shape. It is my daily driver.

    Bought my 2003 Prerunner regular cab almost 3 years ago for $7000 Canadian dollars. Came with a second set of OEM steelies with 31" winter tires. It had 193,000 kilometers/119,000 miles. Currently has 229,000km/142,00m. This truck has been awesome. This is what it looked like at the beginning.TacomaDecal.jpg

    Yeah the cap is pretty great. Its for a Ranger but modified to fit the Tacoma bed. This is not a work truck but a daily driver and occasional camping rig. Lots of storage and keeps stuff dry. :thumbsup:

    OFf topic. Those who buy Jeeps. How many actually utilize the design costs that went into such an off-road vehicle? In other words, they buy a status symbol toy and utilize maybe 15 % of what they paid for. Otherwise, that Jeep spends 90% of the time on city streets. Same with those who buy a Porche. They pay up the nose for it yet utilize only 10% of the potential it was designed for while paying up the snot for it. Go figure. Heh..status symbol.

    Paid 2000 or 2500 for this 95 3.4 4x4 auto with 160xxx miles
    20200625_125455.jpg
    After a full front end rebuild, emissions crap traded out, no cat, flownaster, no cel, wiring cleaned up correctly, sound system, no issue besides a slow power steer leak from the o ring at res/pump connector, a stack or receipts as thick as a pocket bible, warranties on most all parts, starter, radiator, park safety switch, intake plenum gaskets, all new hoses and lines, alot of lessons learned and 182xxx this is her now. All done in a backyard or driveway or the side of the rd when necessary.
    What do y'all appraise her value at now? Clean title.
