TAP did me right..

I wanted to install a TRD rear-end on my non TRD 97 Tacoma, got the whole thing from the third member out to the drum brakes for only $800.00. I thought it was a good deal.

Looked pretty funny stuffing it in the back of my 94 Martix with the seats folded down.

I went there looking for parts for a 62 caddillac and they were asking a rediculous price for the parts... we ended up driving in in a 75 cutlass droptop and out with a tranny from a 64 chevy shoved into it.. (the tranny made the olds look small. ) granted Toyota parts are cheaper but I still wasn't too pleased withTAP.

TAP is the biggest rip off ever, and they have some real a$$holes working there. I think the name means Toyota Auto Parts btw.

I'm definately going to have to check out cal mini, I didnt know it was so close to me.
