283k miles, runs great. Doesn't drip or burn any oil. I've personally owned this truck since 99' w/ 44k miles. I've driven the heck out of it and kept up w/ oil changes every 3k miles religiously. The engine has a "tick" that is a valve that cannot be shimmed enough to keep it quiet, but after 6 years of "ticking" I wouldn't be too worried about it. Transmission is strong, never slips. Few dings on the outside, but original paint. Mostly highway miles.
The truck is used and has high miles. I'm selling cause I'm in need of a bigger truck to accomodate my dog! It's not a cream puff, but to give you an idea how I've maintained it, the original Toyota ujoints are still tight and have been greased up every other oil change. Running 32x11.50 Maxxis Bighorn tires w/ about 30% tread left. Custom welded reciever hitch. Everything works as should. You'll get 17 mpg w/ the large mud tires. Best I've ever got was 21.6 w/ 31x10.50 AT tires.
This is a heck of a truck and I hate to see it go, but I'm ready to upgrade to a bigger truck. Retail is 7900, Rough trade in 4000. They are all over the web for 6000 and higher, I'm asking $5000. I'll include the balljoints and right wheel bearing but you'll have to install them. The truck does have high miles and an engine that ticks, but is still a solid running truck. I have made several trips since November 200+ miles away to duck hunt while pulling my 4wheeler. I'm pricing this truck to sell. It's as is, but of course you'll need to come look at it and see for yourself that it's a solid truck. Org eng and trans.
