This 1999 Toyota Tacoma has the kind of robust reputation that we wouldn’t be surprised if it went through Armageddon and still started on the first crank

And when this 4×4 is also loaded with features and has the XtraCab’s versatile rear seat, it makes for an irresistible deal on something nearly indestructible.

Not only is the reputation of this truck tough, but its looks are quite intimidating, too. It has been upgraded with a lifted stance. And the polished pieces show off even more robustness like the upgraded 16-inch wheels and added Westin step bars. There’s even a proper trailer hitch with a wiring plug so you can properly tow the toys. The body looks good and has the kind of panels that look like they were forged rather than pressed. The factory green paint shows some signs of age and use. The price can leave room for you to invest in a respray, but let’s face it, on a 4×4 like this, you’re probably looking for the kind of finish that makes you eager to go off-road.

Inside, the door panels, dash, cloth seats, and so much more look original and well preserved for this truck’s age and full mileage. So the overall condition tells you this is a Toyota that has been treated with respect. You get high-back bucket seats up front and a center console in-between for easy driver comfort. The XtraCab means useful rear jump seats and a nice place for added secured storage. There are all the right modern features, like cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a tilt steering column, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and a sunroof. And a modern classic pickup also means the safety of dual airbags.

Toyota’s 3.4-liter V6 is from a long line of robust powerplants. These are great all-around motors where the fuel injection, multi-valves, and DOHC give you good acceleration around town. Plus, the big torque gets you through the rough terrain. And speaking of off-road, the two-speed transfer case gives you true go-anywhere 4×4 ability. But more than just good on the trail, a truck like this was built to be comfortable in any situation. Power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive make this as comfortable as a commuter.
