1999 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Bought the truck this weekend with 67,000 miles on it and absoutely love it, I've owned a Chevy S10 and a Nissan Hardbody and so far this is what I've been searching for. A small truck with lots of power with high ground clearance and good looks.


Favorite Features

V6 Power, Looks, Comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Better cabin layout

Review

I bought this truck thinking it was a 4wd at first sight, when I found out it was 2wd I was slightly disappointed until I drove it. I have had no problems whatsoever out of it. I have replaced the tires @70000, windshield wipers,front brake pads and headlights, thats it. A careless woman struck me and did 6500. in damage to it and now that I am driving a rental I can't stand it, I miss it even more. Only thing I would trade it for would be a 4door model of the same thing.


Favorite Features

trd package, stereo system, clearance.


Suggested Improvements

nothing, I truly enjoy it.

1999 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner V6 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Great truck. Quiet on the highway, handles nicely. It may be 2wd but this thing flies through the dessert and off road. The locking read differential is great if you get stuck. Great daily driver. Very comfortable.


Favorite Features

Oil changes and thats about it. No mechanical problems. Toyota=Relability.


Suggested Improvements

Interior could be improved. Less plactic, which easily scratches would be nice. An accessor third door would be great.

1999 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I bought this baby brand new in 1999. This is a very powerful 2.4 lt 4 cyl engine. I used to tow a 20' Commander jet sky boat 3500 lbs from Corona, CA to the Colorado river and I was amazed at this great little truck pulling avility. It has over 80K miles and all I had to replace was tires and front brakes. What more can you ask for?


Favorite Features

Reliabilty and towing power.


Suggested Improvements

Bench seat is not too comfortable.

Review

Very reliable truck considering I abused it for 145K miles. Only had to replace the battery (~100K), rear axle oil seals (~130K - only $7 each & easy to replace) & exhaust manifold (hairline crack ~140K - good excuse to get a header, another easy install). Holds up well with heavy loads. The 2.7L is real easy to maintain and practically bulletproof, except for the ex manifold. Does real well off-road even w/2wd. Lifts and other mods to improve its already great off-road ability are also easy to do. Biggest complaint is the uncomfortable front seats - could use more padding. Rear seats are for tiny kids only.


Favorite Features

Drivetrain reliability, overall build quality and fun to drive off-road.


Suggested Improvements

More comfortable front seats. Stronger exhaust manifold.
