So does anyone know what the difference is between the 01/02/03 & 04 prerunner double cab 3.4
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.
Thanks for the information and taking the time to help guys. I have no issues with mine just following up on stuff I've heard only had mine 6mo so just paying attention..And super thanks to BIRDSLAYER my post wasn't very clear but your response was very clear and really answered ALL my questions about 01 to o4 changes..... Thanks....
I thought my 1year and a face lift was super helpful.
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!
