    Do you say pickup or truck ???

    I hate to admit how often a say "car." My Taco is the first truck I've owned. So, I have 50 years of experience to live down.

    Toyota Tacoma Diesel Coming Soon ???

    Here we go. I remember when regular leaded gas was 35 cents a gallon. 29 cents when there was a gas war. Beat that.

    Whistling through my Taco

    I have a 17 TRD auto 95,000 miles. There is an occasional whistling sound coming from the engine (I think) when I accelerate between 30 and 45 mph. It only lasts for about 5 seconds. Not every time I accelerate, and it can go away for a month and then come back. Ghosts? Help.

    Best Tires

    I’m on my second set. About 40,000 mile per set. But I change tires as soon as they hit 3/32 tread.

    CB antenna tonneau cover bracket fab + clean install

    Really nice job. One reason I haven't gotten a CB radio is the lack of satisfactory (for me) places to stick the antenna. You solved that problem. Probably requires more metal work and wiring skill than I have to do the job right, but I'll study your pictures a bit and walk around my truck one...

    Questions on buying a used taco

    I'm very happy with my 2017 TRD Sport 4 door automatic 6 cylinder at 90,000 miles. That includes 3 round trips from Asheville to Southern California. The bottom line for me is that I have confidence in making these long trips and plan to make more of them. Gas mileage ranges from 18 to just...

    Seat comfort

    Can't compare, but I have a 2017 Tacoma Sport. I added 2 inch lifters to the rear legs. I drive from Asheville to California every few months. I can sit in the driver's seat 4 hours with no cramps and a comfy butt. I could go longer, but my bladder can't.

    removing the engine

    Sorry about the delay. I have to send the receipt to my son-in-law. He says that based on my description, which may not be that accurate, the engine did not have to be removed. But let's wait for his assessment. Son-in-law owns Vendetta Racing and LaFortune Motor Sports. He knows his stuff...
