    How many miles are on the truck? Common to replace on my trucks for that gen was the contacts on the starter, waterpump, and alternator. Then again I took my trucks up to 180k before I got rid of them.

    I would check all of the fluids, motor,trans, transfer case and the rears. Also check all of the filters, I did my fuel filter a few times on my old 98. Check and clean the MAF if it needs it. I also put 180k on my 98 taco and the only thing I had to replace other than fluids and front brakes was the starter at about 130k. :thumbsup:

    also check your ball joints, esp the lowers.

    if the lbj's go when you're on the road, the entire wheel/hub assemble likes to disconnect from the truck

    I started out by doing research about the trucks in general, and from there found out what I wanted the truck to have. Then I just started looking around for one that had what I wanted. I found the one I purchased locally through Craigslist and it seemed like a really solid truck so I went with it! The biggest thing I looked out for was rust since I'm from Pa the road salt eats them up. Good luck in your search!
