2006 Toyota Tacoma 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.7L 4cyl 5M)


Outside some flimsy door panels that dealer said he replaced and didn't, just glued reinforcements in door elbow rest, I'm fairly happy. Installed a 2.5" front lift via Bilstein adjustable shocks & a 1" rear lift via blocks with matching Bilstein 5100's. I average 23- 24mpg on summer fuel, 21-22 on winter fuel. Light in the rear on wet roads, but thats to be expected. Also alot of driveline noise from day one, but my 93 model had same thing. I plan on another 100,000 miles, I love it that much.

Best Features

Looks, roomy interior compared to my 93, fuel economy isn't bad for a 4WD, bed tie downs & composite construction have proved handy.

Worst Features

Arm rests, driveline (fixed mine via flipping rear drive-shaft, found this at tech forums) takes a pair of 14 mm wrenches & 1/2 hour.
