    I saw this truck @ my company's sister dealership and I decided to pull up beside it and snap a fast pic.

    it's sitting on 37"s and it clears them by at least a foot! I think someone was building a show truck and ran out of money because it's there on consignment and it's missing a few vital parts like shocks and a front drive shaft.

    It's probably missing the front drive shaft because they couldn't make the angles work.

    I would say that truck falls into the 'unusable abomination' category.

    Ugly, useless, probably unsafe. But hey I'm also of the mindset that a 6" lift on a Tacoma is useless and brotacular, so there you go.

    Yeah sorry about the crap pic it was on my Iphone and the sun was really weird. They are asking $37k for it. I go by there usually on thursday's if it's still around I'll take some pics of the rear springs (they look like a half moon)

    $37k?? I hate places like that. "Here, stick this stupid high price on it, some idiot will think it's worth it and buy it". They're the same place that will sell some innocent person who doesn't know anything (ie my sister), and BS them into thinking it's a good vehicle. Some people deserve it, but others are just being taken advantage of.

    That being said, you'd have to be a moron to pay $37k for a truck that isn't drivable.

    I'm thinking more like 10K or less. Probably more of the less part.
