Toyota's have a model identification plate which is located under the hood on the firewall. The models are identified by a code. These codes explain exactly what your truck is and has. For example; model number VZN170L-CRMDKAB is a 1996 Tacoma 4WD, 5 speed manual transmission, Xtracab Deluxe V-6. When you walk into a dealer or your local parts store to purchase a part for your truck, and are not sure exactly the type of vehicle you drive, the model number and vehicle identification numbers are the key.
