    Drives nice, comfy, a little taller and wider than my last one. Cup holders will hold my 32oz drink bottle.

    Look at the 5th picture. Dial on the left side is the 4wd selector.

    100%. 20g for a barebones 4cyl truck with a manual...wow.

    Not that they aren't worth it, but man...

    Nice truck Paul, should last you a long time...

    Cap is a must have, were you able to salvage the cap off the old truck? (wasn't there one?) I like what this guy did to his tacoma cap...

    You missed a R :)

    4cyl really?

    Does seem like a lot of money. Almost the same I paid for my 2007 Volvo XC70 with lower mileage.

    His old truck had a cap and he kept his bike stuff in there when doing bike type activities.

    yeah...the 2.7L is a 4banger. Not to diss, just saying it's not a high-line truck, but it's still hyper valuable. Hell, even sh.tty old tacos with 135k mi sell for 11g.

    Interesting I did not know there would be enough power to pull that thing with a gas 4banger. I will keep saying it a sweet common rail diesel in that thing would rule.

    Anyway still a sweet truck and sounds like a super clean setup that should give very little problems for long time.

    2.7L is HOOJ. x2 that's a 5.4l V8...so it should put down some healthy power. I wouldn't want to tow with it, but I bet it can get out of it's own way.

    Congrats on the new truck.

    Nice truck, but that is a lot for used.
    I paid $25 for mine. Crew cab, loaded, TRD, brand new.

    What I find so amazing is the value on those Tacos vs the Tundra.

    I have an 04 tundra with the V8. I get about 13mpg (vs what... maybe 17 on the Taco), I have a fair bit more space... never had any mechanical issues. Much bigger truck bed... leather sunroof etc. Love the truck... and it is probably worth HALF of what a similar year Taco would go for.

    I will never go back to manual. Have ruined too much clothing to worry about eating/drinking/shifting ever again. And I used to be the worlds foremost preponent for manual as a doomsday kinda thing when all goes electrically wrong.

    maybe you shouldn't use your vehicle like a dining room.

    Yes, I'm getting a cap, the one on the old truck was one designed for a Mazda (the truck came with the cap), and didn't fit really well and leaked. I'm looking at the same type, and it will look better because it will be color coordinated.

    Get a cap with side doors. ARE sells ones that slide and lift open. Best feature ever for accessing gear.

    Nice ride, I have noticed how the mid sizes are almost priced as much as their big brothers all the way across the board, kinda crazy.

    I like the interior on that, looks good.

    Sweet ride. I've got an 04 taco and I love it. I'm sure I'll get another when mine dies in a few decades. I've got a tono cover over my bed. Allows for a secure spot for gear when on the trail but still allows me to have the benefits of an open bed when i need it. Congrats on the new ride.

    Tacoma, the actual american made car.
