    Get what you want and can afford. An 06 for 25K is just ridiculous though.

    Well, 1st Gen's are better..............than walking or anything made in England but it's common knowledge that the 2nd Gen Tacoma is the better of the two trucks :)

    That is completely up to you... But personally I would not get rid of my current vehicle just so that I can have the money to lift an older one. You're gonna lose your ass in the end

    Trade it in or sell it for the truck you really want. Either way it's gonna cost money to set it up properly for offroading and personally I would get another 2nd gen. Your not saving anything going older.

    TURN OFF CAPS LOCK, sell truck, buy 1st gen, realize lifts are same price, admit your epic fail, recover from hole in wallet, cry, make a new thread, whine and bitch about how we are all retarded, /ban
