    Hi, i recently bought this 2008 5-Speed, 2.7L, 4-Cylinder Toyota Tacoma in May of this year(2011). Things are unfortunately not working out for me here and i have decided to move back to Hawaii. The drive to a California port and the cost of shipping it are out of the question due to finances right now.

    Since i bought the truck i debadged it and have installed aftermarket headlights, an aftermarket Dual XM8150 Mechless Head Unit, tinted the tail lights, installed LED lights in the footwells to see at night. Also installed a Push to Start switch, a Clifford 2-way Alarm and Keyless Entry System, aftermarket Smittybilt bucket seats, a Cherry Bomb Extreme Muffler dumped before the axle, aftermarket fog lights, a hurst T-Handle shifter and replaced the stock rims and tires with some MB 72 wheels with 235/75R15 Hankook Dynapros with less than 1,000 miles on them!! im only the second owner.

    The truck has less than 30,000 miles on it! it has lots of power too! when i first test drove it i thought it was a 6cylinder because i was going 80mph in 4th gear! that was stock! now with the muffler on, i found an increase in HP and MPG! Body has no dents or rust, interior is great as well!

    i bought it for $16,000 4 months ago from the dealer and put a ton of money into it...so much money, that im pretty much broke now! hahaha. but just trying to pay off the loan that i took out to purchase it and get me home to hawaii. $16,000...THATS ALL I ASK!! need to sell ASAP! hate to get rid of it but letting it go is a must......:(

    i can be reached at 702-403-8131 - TEXT PREFERRED. (NOT 720!! ITS A VEGAS NUMBER!) able to send more pictures my email and/or text on request!

    and also emailed at the anonymous address above
    please include something unique in the subject bar so i know its not spam! thanks!!

    will consider offers/trades. no lowballing tho!
    thanks for looking!

    Unfortunately doing mods to your truck actually bring the value down as it gets harder to sell. If you do end up selling it I hope you get close to what you want, good luck.
