Well.. some people prefer the 2nd gen and some prefer the 3rd.. most 3rd gen complaints are from the funky shifting auto trans. I'd buy the manual trans if I ever got one.... and that huge screen door of a grille is not for me. They should have fitted the 4runner front end on it IMO.

Its all in what you want. I used to drive a 2nd gen as a work truck, was actually the reason I chose my 3rd gen for my personal truck. As far as 2nd gen vs 3rd gen they both have their +'s and -'s. I love my 3rd gen and wouldn't trade it for anything unless it was I just wanted a new truck. Of course the dealer is going to try to get you into a 3rd gen, especially with the 4th gen just coming out, gotta move that leftover stock. Me personally, if I was interested I might consider it if I was interested in a new truck, especially if the deal was just something you couldn't turn down. If you like youre 2nd gen, it's serving you well, dont want or need a new truck, just say no thank you, I'm good.

Personal preference. If you want more bells and whistles make the trade. If you want a dependable truck that you're happy with that's paid off (maybe, I dont know where you sit) then keep what ya got)

Are you itching for a new truck? Lol
I was looking for a 15 when I bought my 17 after driving 3 other Tacomas...
That being said, I love my Turd gen but it is a manual and OV tuned... haha
I guess I'm saying "if you're happy with your 15, you can keep your 15..."

But frealdoe... how many miles? Paid off? Any problems? You seem intrigued... what gives?
