Default Tacoma Purchase Advice

Hi All,
Got a friend who's looking at buying a tacoma (hopefully) soon. He's still torn between an early 2000's or one of the newer generation, but either way it will be a quad cab. Any advice or links to threads welcome, but I did have 2 questions:
  1. Does anyone know of a guide like slee has on his website for purchasing cruisers, but for tacomas? Like what to watch out for, things to check, etc?
  2. Any south-siders have a recommendation on a shop/mechanic/dealership that's familiar with tacoma's that could do a pre-purchase inspection? (After spending many thousands of dollars on my cruiser in the first year I have determined I am not sufficient for that task )
