    I thought it would be cool to get some statistics on which front end is the most popular, and to see if the voter's own the front end which they like the most, or if the truck they have does not contain their favorite front end.

    So here we go....

    I can't upload any pics of front ends right now, so if somebody wants to do that, that would be awesome!

    I like both the old school look of the 96-97 and the 01-04, but I like the 01-04 more because thats what I've got :D

    I like old school 95-97 best. But I bought an '04 because it was in way better shape and lower miles than any 95-97 I could find.

    I voted for 01-04 but I think if the 95-97 was taller in the middle like the 01-04 I would like that one best. I guess that would end up looking almost like an 05+ though, haha.

    (95-97 that's what I own)

    I remember when the 01's first came out. I was like, "well that's it. I'm never buying a truck any newer than the one I have now... for the rest of my life I will be stuck driving old trucks".

    For some reason I didn't like the vertical lines in the grille, but they've grown on me - I like 'em now :D

    i really wanted an '01-04 tacoma, but they were out of my budget, so i "settled" for a 2000. while the look has grown on me, i still think i prefer the '01-'04 style. i think an elite offroad bumper will help class up my truck's front end! :)

    I guess I'm old school. I love the look of the original Tacoma.

    But I think my favorite Toyota pickup look is the 79-83! The original Toyota 4x4!
