    Hey guys i just wanted to say hi.

    Im looking to purchase this week and im going to need some advice. i really wanted to purchase from an actual toyota but the model im looking for seems to be REALLY rare.

    V6
    Double Cab
    6-Speed Manual
    4x4

    The only one i have found semi local is an 07 for 25,600 out the door. 32,000 miles on it. Seems to be really clean.

    What do you all think?

    23,991 is the asking price. they "kinda" have me by the balls because it is a rare truck. im really in no hurry to buy but playing the waiting game sucks


    What would be a good price?

    My advice for you is to keep looking around. With the price they are giving you, you might as well look for an 09. Good luck :thumbsup:

    None... yet. Well unless you count window stickers :)
    It'd be tough to find a dbl cab w/ the 6spd (I couldn't find one w/ all the other specs I wanted), but an 09 could be a steal right now. I'm a bit partial, admittedly

    Welcome. If you decide to go with an 09, let me know. Most of the dealers I have come across in the Chicago area will only do dealer trades within 150 miles and with the truck you are looking for being so rare, it might be tough. I ended up buying from a dealer in Mattoon (about 200 miles south of me) who was more than willing to "order" my truck, gave me a killer deal, and even delivered it to my house. Like some have said, you may find an 09 is hard to pass up at the prices they are selling them at now.

    Welcome, I had the same dilemma and waited then the truck I wanted popped up. If you're willing to wait and maybe travel a distance it could be worth it. I flew to Nashville and bought my truck from a toyota dealer. It was used with a toyota warranty but worth the wait. If this didn't appear I'd be driving an 09 without a doubt those are sweet. I did a Edmunds.com pricing and then took a percentage off to negotiate.

    Have a great holiday.
