    Okay smart ass..lol just have heard a couple of design changes from 01 to 02 one being the power steering rack because of a stiffness in turning issues and the other was breaking at freeway speed would shake.

    The only thing I know of is a face lift around 2000-2001.

    Steering racks are the same 96-04 2wd/4wd all the same. I just rebuilt my front end last month.

    Supposedly 1st gen tacos are known for warping front rotors, so I've been told... Never personally had any braking/Steering issues with mine and I beat it like it owes me money! Cosmetically they changed a lil bit here n there thru the yrs, but physically the hard parts are all 1st gen. Some shit is 4x4 specific obviously, but for the most part they're all the same.

    No problem. They're great trucks, the best in my personal opinion. Like anything though they're not perfect unless you make them as perfect as a human can! Some people will talk shit about em, but as I've noticed those same people neglect to do simple preventative maintenance... take everything with a grain of salt. If you take care of it, it'll take care of you!
