Tacomas are great trucks as long as it's not beat to sh*t... I love/loved both of my rangers though so I say just get another... and you can negotiate price... but at the end of the day it's up to you...

now... pics of any of these trucks??

You would rather but back a base model truck that you have to fix than buy a truck with more options?

if you know what you're doing, you can save a ton of money by adding those options to your current truck and not having a truck payment just because you want power mirrors/locks/windows.

It needs a new bed, rear bumper, and left tail-light, which wouldn't be that much. But the frame is also bent, which I don't know how much that would cost ot how hard it would be. And anyways, I really want a 4x4 and i love Tacomas.

Nope. Some guy offered me 75 bucks for it a little while back, so I sold it.
