why should i stay away from it? this truck looks amazing for 25 years old. It looks like it was well taken care of also. I am using it as a work truck and weekend play toy. It's not a daily driver so I don't have to worry about that. I have a Honda Accord for that!!!
ill post a pic of it tonight.

3.slows eat through head gaskets like nothing you've ever seen before. I wouldn't buy it unless you're planning on swapping in another motor (3.4L from a first gen Tacoma, Chevy 4.3, etc)

Thanks Thatguy18. You probably saved me a nice investment then. The guy was only asking 1650 for it and he said the motor was recently rebuilt. Idk. I might look into it further, or I might not. What would a swap from the 3.0-3.4 cost? What all would I need to replace? Computer, trans, transfer case?

the fact that it had to be rebuilt at only 160k should tell you something lol.

Well he said it was rebuilt, but I don't believe him one bit until I can see paperwork or it show signs of being rebuilt.

Yeah good call, I still wouldn't go for it though. Wait it out for a clean 4cyl truck.

ok so i have another question. If i bought it and did a swap to a 3.4. What would have to be changed? Trans, transfer case, ecu, wiring, motor mounts? I want to swap to a 5spd if i did the motor swap.

Why do you say it isn't a tacoma? It has the Tacoma badge on the tailgate? If it isn't a Tacoma, then is it the T-100?
