2009 Toyota Tacoma
« on: April 23, 2019, 04:57:20 PM »
Time had come to replace my beloved S10, while it has served its purpose, changing up jobs requires me to get to work more often in the snow. On a whim I researched some trucks close to my price range and this was was at the very top, if not over. The first truck I found was rusted to Hell and back so I decided to check this one out. I had known they had this truck for a while so I used that to my advantage...









It's a really clean truck. It had the leaf spring and frame corrosion recall done. The frame was good enough they gooped it with some strange undercoating. The interior is pretty much mint, the drivers seat is just starting to ruffle. The exterior needs some work as it has the typical Toyota white oxidation. Overall a very good truck for what I paid. Right at 130,000 miles.

Looks very nice. Sad to hear the S10 is gone though. :(

It isn't gone yet, but once I paint the fender and clean it up I'm slapping a For Sale sign on it. I know I have alot of time and effort in it, but it just can't travel the mountain anymore. I cross my fingers it doesn't throw a rod going up every time. The Taco I just took it outta overdrive and it cruised right up and I barely had to touch the brakes going down. Win!

Some new tires and a cleanup...






No I didn't go with some all terrain tires. Got a steal on some Yokohama Geolandar H/T's. I don't like the noise level of A/T's after a while. This will be a 99% pavement truck, the 1% will be driving around in my yard to unload mulch or something like that :lol: Got the 4wd for inclimate weather only.
