    Oh really?

    I drove to Virginia from Asheville on Friday morning, came back Sunday afternoon.

    I-40 to Durham, then I-85 north. Is that where you saw me at?

    Or I-64 two weeks ago heading back from Obx?

    I voted 01-04 since I have one. But I, too, like the early 80's. This is my '81.

    Without a doubt the 01-04, which is what I own, but also objectively the best IMO. In fact, I think it is the best front end on any year/any generation Tacoma.

    It's a tough choice for me. I really like both the 95-97 and the 01-04. Overall, I definitely like the 01-04 better, but I think that the 95-97 front end looks better when you compare both groups to what other trucks looked like during the same time period.
