hello all, new guy here. I've been wanting a Tacoma for a long time now and have finally found one to my liking. It is an '04 TRD 4x4. It has about 46k miles and is absolutely gorgeous. This will be my first one so I'm not too familiar w/ them, but when I popped the hood, amidst the immaculate engine I spotted what seemed to be a rusted header. Is this typical on Tacomas, even that new?

Yes, it is perfectly normal for the cast maifolds to rust up. They start rusting as soon as they roll off the produciton line. It doesn't matter though, those maniflods will still be around long after the body and frame rust away.

...oh I definitely am! I was wondering if you could put decals/stickers on the rear window-the middle part that slides. Will it scrape the decal/sticker when you open it? Sorry, random question.

I've got a sticker there and it's holding up fine.
