Interesting. So who got the pushbutton shift 4wd? Is yours a TRD? Was that a TRD/Non TRD thing or did it come with some other package? I have seen DC tacos with the push button on the side of the T-case lever, but I didn't make note of what trim level it was.BogusBlake said:Not true. It's the 4runners from around the turn of the century that have that T-case. My '04 DC Taco (only availible with AT) has a fully manual T-case. In fact, that's one of the many reasons I bought it.
I could be even more pedantic and point out that the first Toyota truck sold in the US was the Stout, circa 1965, so the '79-'84 was probably at least the 3rd gen of small trucks. But I assume you meant the generations of 4wd trucks. But yes, I agree that it's silly to divide the 95.5-04 Tacos into 3 different eras based on the "facelifts." They were essentially the same truck.Also, this "Gen" thing you guys have been getting wrong has been bugging me.
1st gen= '79-84
2nd gen= '84-'88
3rd gen= '89-'95
1st gen= '84-88 (looks like 2ng gen pickup)
2nd gen= '89-'95 (looks like 3rd gen pickup)
3rd gen= '96-'03 (looks like 1st gen Taco)
4th gen= '03 and up
1st gen= '95.5-'04
2nd gen= '05 and up
