Re: My 01 S-runner
I've found that one shouldn't rely on using the name 'S-Runner' to search AutoTrader (cars.com, etc.). If you search on the name, you'll miss the SR's that are mis-listed as 'PreRunners' (happens all the time) or something else.
It's more reliable to search on 'V6' and 'manual transmission' and '2WD'.
The ultimate test for resolving ambiguities is my 'Steven-Stick' rule. SR's are the only 2001 - 2004 models whose VIN's begin with '5TEVN' ('Steven') and which have manual transmissions.
'5TEVN' means a US-built Tacoma extended cab, 2WD, with a V6. A 2001 - 2004 '5TEVN' must be either a PreRunner or an S-Runner. All PreRunners during that period were automatics. All SR's were manuals.
