The answer is...all of them
^^^What he said. They all have their own quirks. 1st gens have frame rot and lower balljoint issues, 05 had engine mount issues, 05-07 trucks had a bad run of rear gears, 09 ditched the mechanical LSD and 12s have the wide mouth bass face.
02 double cab with 100,000 miles on a perfect frame, and a solid axle swap. And a 5 speed swap.. Win!!!
An '08 because that's what I have. :w00t: But for real. Most of the early issues were worked out and it was before they added all the traction control garbage. Oh, and it's also BSP the best color!
Can't wait to see what the next gen has to offer! Whenever that is...
The '08 ..ching! ching! :laughing:
hey LUSETACO what part of PA u from
07-08, best 2 years of second gen... IMO. like mentioned before, most of the kinks were worked out and it was before all the electronic BS they had to add.
X2 None of the nannies on our trucks.
'06 No issues with mine. Built 6/06 :thumbsup:
Oh the dreaded 06. Many of 06 have had many issues. How long have you owned it?
About 6 months now, been just about completely through the drivetrain and no issues. All oils changed, color good, minor sludge on magnets, switched over to synthetic. Royal Purple in transmission/transfer case, Valvoline in diffs/motor. Frame is solid, no grinding in tranny, upshifts/downshifts smooth. Mechanical LSD rear grabs and takes off. Runs great. Has 51k on her, I got her with 46k. Mine was built towards the end of the '06 production run. Clutch is smooth and no squeaky. 4x4 hi/lo kicks in/out fine, no issues there. If there are any problems with her I have yet to find any. If there is I'll fix it, my 3rd Toyota P/U since '94, pretty easy to work on if you have a manual. Oh and no leaks.
A new clutch was installed at 44k and the spiral cable was replaced under recall before I bought it.
I've read all about the problems the '05/6 have had but everything works and all is tight. A buddy of mine has an '05 DCSB sport he bought new around the end of '04 fully loaded, only issue he has had was his fan motor resistor going out.
I have an 01 and I love it, but u can't go wrong with pretty much any year as long as its been well looked after.
07 is the best in my opinion mainly because I own one. No issues whatsoever

Good Grief, everyone knows the 2001 Tacoma 4x4 is the most authentic, bullet proof Taco ever built! With one of these you'll become such friends you can just walk out of the house whistle, and she will come right over to you.:thumbsup::whistling2:
Until the frame rusts out from right under you.
