A good truck but for a few nits

Vehicle
2002 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Xtracab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Tight and well-built. Underpowered, but this may be the fault of the tall tires which raise the effective gear ratio. Driver seat felt weird at first but my bad back loves it, even on long drives. Weird and irritationg motor rap around 2K under light load, sounds like a rod knock, but can't be heard outside the vehicle. Some folks say the 3RZ motor will just keep running regardless. Bought a 100K "wrapper" warranty just in case.
Favorite Features
Fun and cheap to drive with 5-speed. Slider-type rear window helps ventilation. Styling is great -- compliments from everyone.
Suggested Improvements
Move clock to radio display. Drop ratio of 5th gear. Oil-filter location is absurd and a huge nuisance for self-maintainers, removable skid plate notwithstanding; let's have a remote-mount like the real trucks do it. Headlight aiming requires trim removal -- unacceptable!
