very true... vehicles are by far not an investment.

but i was asking only $3500 more than KBB for a 2004 tacoma w/ the options and miles mine has, not to include all the crap i've welded and bolted onto it.

just a bad time for buyers and sellers

I see, I'm just trendy. Got it. Last I checked my truck does pretty well in the trails and the dunes. LT flexes pretty nice. Didn't know you had your SAS done Seth

OOoOOoO you hollister show off! hahahah... hit the next hell hole or fordyce run then we will talk about it. I gotta a wife... that puts the kibosh on SAS for the FJ otherwise that would be my next mod.

I'm not saying that LT cant do the kind of stuff we do with our IFS.. but put it against a rig rockin 37's on a set of dana 60s and you wont follow it very far down the more complicated trails.

Haha it's all good man. Now that the dust has cleared I can step back in lol. Thanks for all the complements and constructive criticism to all. And for the past hour of entertainment of reading all the posts! Just looking to get out racing and having fun. Still a ton of work to be done.

Oh and for those of you who think it's a fad when you stare at a desert all day everyday you to crazy and want to make the best of it!

The pic is of el mirage dry lake bed from a hangar where I work
