Long time lurker here. Currently trying to get out of my 2nd gen PreRunner and into a 1st gen 4x4 manual. Any meet-ups happening anytime soon?

I still try to post in the forum when I have the free time. I hope it becomes active again.

I'll be a lil more active once I get my money tree growing again :D..

Hadn't been able to do any mods or any wheeling in a while, so I lurk as well.. but I'm hoping we can reignite the good Ol days :cool:

Has anybody noticed that the 2wd trucks are no longer called "Prerunner"?

Not much. There were more posts on TTORA when there were less than 100 members nationwide restricted to only Tacoma owners than there are today. The more commercial it got the less popular it got to be. Now with all the streaming ads there is rarely anything to see and no useful information. It's in the tank. I'm about to remove it from my desktop.

Bummer.

But on to the good news.











Brought it home tonight.

Like my last two Tacomas, it's 90% street ride, and weekend warrior when I can get out there.

Like my last two Tacomas, it will be modded very little if at all.

It's a 2017 OffRoad with a real locker in the back and all the computer traction stuff.

It's damn nice, and drives really good on the road.

I'm happy, and I'm going to keep right on having fun offroad regardless of whatever becomes of this site.:winking:

No Comment?

Wow. This place IS dead, isn't it?

Oh well.

I put a set of BFG AT KO2 tires on it. Went from 265-70-16 to 265-75-16. Just a little taller. No rubs so far and it doesn't look like stuffing a tire is going to make it rub either.



It seems to like it.
I like it.

Like I said before, I'm going to continue having fun regardless of what this forum does. :winking:

Un-Believable!

No comments from anybody at all?

O.K., Screw You Guys, I'm going wheeling.

I put an LED lightbar in today.

O.K., I was out and about a little bit tonight.

So, when I got to an empty and dark section of road I turned the light bar on.

HOLY CRAP! That thing is badass. It was aimed a little low, but I easily adjusted it and it puts out a big, broad beam of bright white light that makes the stock headlights look like a punk.

This thing is totally the best offroad light I have ever driven behind.

It lights up the ground, the road in front of the truck, and even the trees around the road.

If you run up on a surprise using this light you are going WAY too fast!

I got the bar and mounts from Rough Country, and I recommend it two thumbs up. I like the discreet way it tucks up inside the grille, too. Looks like it's supposed to be there.

As if any body was reading this...

Well since you didn't post pics of the lightbar, it didn't really happen and this thread is all bullshit.

The new Tacoma's are nothing more then a chevord with a Toyota badge.
But will likely cost the buyer more coin to purchase then the equivlent detroit iron.

But I'll suppose it's purdy to look at... if that makes yer day !? :dunno:

Would seem the old TTORA users are running amok with nowwhere to post !? Lol
I think every purposeful forum has lost out to the FB/twitt 'tard users.
sad really

Must be due to the popular e gizmos installed on 4X rigs these days
obviously instant e gratification is more valued then needing any serious off road capability.

My 1st gen Tacoma is the last Tacoma I'll ever buy from Toyota.
'cause now Toyota just produces another detroit copy.
And I have no "L" tattooed on my forehead.

Tho' I did throw my money at a low mileage '10 Corolla
so's my 1st gen Tacoma isn't utilized as the dd any longer.

I think it's nearing my time to leave this crappy new world...
But I have to out live Dick before I give up ship :D

Look closer, Dick.

In the above quoted post, I mentioned that the light bar is discreet.

If you look carefully, you can see where I cut out a part of the grille above the plate holder and below the chrome...

There's a 30 element LED bar sneakily installed there.

And It's bright as fuck.
