calling all TW members!

Don't know much about the 1st gens (and yes this is posted there too as a cross post) but my bro and I are going to look at a truck for him (hist first)...we are going to take a look in about an hour and i wanted to see what you guys thought about this:

http://maine.craigslist.org/cto/1712008816.html


I have no clue when it comes to first gens....what should we look for and what are some common problems that we may want to check out before we make an offer...and or what should have been or should we have replaced/fixed

thanks!


* the reason i posted here and in the first gen section is because we need some suggestions and quick info beofre we drive to see it.

Look for frame and body rust. That looks like a real clean truck.

Well for starters that isn't a Tacoma.

It's a Toyota Pickup.

And not to sound like an ass, but I don't think this should be in the 2nd gen section at all. It has nothing to do with 2nd gens. And there is no need to post the same exact thread multiple times.

check to make sure there is no oil all over the place, no frame rust, body rust and if you have the chance take it to a mechanic and get his opinion on it.

Calm down. My response included information pertaining to the truck in question. I told you it was not a Tacoma. I also said "Not to sound like an ass..." meaning I was just informing you. The reason there are specific sections on this site, is so that you can get the right answers. So calm your shit.

I had a 92 that was almost identical. They are built like rocks. As long as it runs good and dosnt make any weird noises it should last forever. Line had about 25000 on it and i beat the shit out of it and couldnt hurt. My neighbor bought it from about 5 years ago and still drives it alot.

And even though I shouldn't help you after your rude remarks, $400 for a roll bar and 2 lights (which look like KC daylighters), is a rip off.

3.0L V-6 is a fuel sucking anemic pig ~ .... but the 5-spd is a bonus!

head gaskets ~

and at 150k keep a good ear out for transmission bearing noise.

Pitman arm & idler arm joints

CV's / CV boots

But I'm guessing your hr is up and you either do or do not own the truck by now...

Looks like a great deal to me, the major parts have been done already (timing belt etc.). He's selling from Rhode Island (from his phone number) and they salt their roads in the winter so like mwild said look for rust. If it's solid I'd buy it myself at that price.
