    I have never had a Tacoma Prerunner before and when I went out yesterday to change the oil suprise!!

    No floor jack, wheel chocks, jack stands needed.
    Man it was so EZ thanks to the DIY thread I had everything at hand.

    Most all of my previous vehicles were way lower and it is a bunch more work.
    This truck is COOL.:cool:

    Indeed!,
    Everyone makes mistakes once in a while.
    I always do my own as we have all heard the horror stories before.

    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Yea , isn't it nice to just slide in under your truck to do the oil. Especially if you have an 06, or up and the filter is up top. Easy to get a strap on if it was tightened a bit much.

    Pshhh, a man uses a hammer and a screw driver. Strap ons are a little to kinky for my oilchange routine

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.

    I agree 100%!!!! I use to have a 99 firebird, and that thing was a pain in the @ss to change the oil and other things I worked on.
