You should be able to find some in your price range. Broaden your search area if your immediate area lacks quantity. In most cases, they will be listed above kbb so be prepared to expect that. Sometimes it takes a long time to find what you're looking for. I looked for months before I found my truck.

not to discourage you but these trucks get harder n harder to find. These have always been popular trucks, and now you have alot of full size truck guys wanting a more practical pickup wich will make it even harder. If you find something decent jump on it cuz they fly like hotcakes.

You just have to be patient. I spent months looking before I found this truck:


2000 Regular Cab DLX with 85k miles, 2.7L, 4x4, manual. It's got new paint and they frame just got treated by Toyota. It's also lifted and running on 31's and has a tool box and the interior is perfect.

I paid 6,525 out the door for it. You have to be patient though with these trucks if you don't want to get hosed. Quite frankly it almost doesn't make sense to buy used with how high the prices are! KBB on my truck is like 8k, Nada is 9,250$.

I got mine for 3k and my uncle bought it new, so I know it wasn't abused. Talk about getting lucky
