Looking to see what a good price for this might be. I may be in the market for a new Tacoma if I can get enough! That's about the only way I can stand to sell this, it is a fantastic truck that has carried me through a few tough spots. It has devoured mud puddles, snow banks, and rescued people effortlessly in both Snowmageddon and Snowpocalypse. It's dragged a couple other trucks out of trouble and has never given me reason to second-guess it. I'm looking to sell both it and my Chevy so that I can use one truck to tow and get through snow and mud, and a new Tacoma would fit that bill perfectly.
It is a push-button 4wd SR5, automatic, v6, xtra-cab, sliding window, moon roof, AC, power windows/locks/mirrors. Drop-in bed liner, not sure what brand. I installed a hidden hitch. I use it to back my trailer into the yard since I got my Chevy stuck in the clay and had to pull it out with the Tacoma. Don't really tow anything on the street with it. Not sure what other options are important to note on these guys. 144k miles.
Not lifted or modified besides stock-spec repairs.
Interior is in pretty good shape, with a couple minor issues like the deteriorating steering wheel, broken ac vent, stuff like that. The fabric is in really good shape. AC blows cold, heater works great. Original stereo still sounds good.
It has non-toyota leaf-springs (had to replace broken ones) and stock-sounding cat-back (the muffler finally rusted out from condensation). Had shocks put on all around about 2 years ago.
It got a water pump before I got it (the dealer I took it to actually had a service record on file from a previous owner, and they told me about it). I have put in a steering rack and had them fix a leaking gasket. I think it was the intake manifold. Hasn't leaked since then. Had all the diff fluids changed when I bought it and it's had oil changes every 5k miles since. Tires are currently about 80%. Brakes were done about 10k miles ago. Just had it smogged and registered in VA last week, it passed with an easy margin.
It starts easy every time and drives great. Push-button 4WD and low-range works great for the few times I use it.
Cruise doesn't work (it looks like some squirrels got to it before I had it). The broken wires are accessible but I just haven't cared to fix it since I don't really use cruise. Power antenna is stuck in the up position, but receives signal just fine. It has some surface rust in a few spots, but the frame is rock solid. I don't know if it had a frame swap before I got it. If there's a way to tell, I can check.
I have 114 fill-ups tracked on fuelly (26k miles). 17.7 mpg average, 22.1 best.
I'm hoping to get $12k for it since I think it's in pretty darn good shape with all the right bits and hasn't been screwed up. I really do love this truck and am posting it here to make sure someone who appreciates it will get it.
