    Let's see some of those great deals on Toyota pickups. I just picked up a perfectly healthy 1986 2x4 with a 22r for $200 dollars! The only thing wrong with it was the muffler was rusted off.

    Here she is.

    That's what I said! The guy I got it from only used it for bowhunting and it sat for the rest of the year. I just couldn't pass it up... It even came with a full tank of gas!

    My girlfriends dad. I have been wanting it for about a year or so and he finally gave in and sold it to me.. Drives like a champ too. Not to mention it gets about twice the gas mileage of my other trucks. I figure it'll pay for itself in about a week or so :)

    Oh my god. Now that's a great deal. I haven't even seen a 1st Gen Tacoma for under a couple thousand.. To be honest, I'm quite jealous. Nice trucks!

    That does make more sense.. But still. That's a hell of a deal.

    Here's another truck that I paid next to nothing for.. I traded it for a quad that I paid 800 dollars for.

    Some great deals you guys are getting. Around here a rust free 80's 4x4 is still worth 4K.

    No pics but my buddy bought an 82 2wd longbed for 700 bucks. 70K original. Only bad thing was the previous owner hacked the wiring all to hell. My buddy asked what he should do to the truck for maintenance. I told him to put gas in it and drive it until it saved him 700 bucks. LOL

    Acouple of my buddies bought a 85 ext cab 2wd with a custom flatbed on it than ran good for $100. Took it to mudfest and drove the shit out of it and ended up smashing it with an excavator and high lift at the end of the day. It was pretty awesome.

    I've been on Craigslist constantly in NJ NY and PA looking for a reasonable price on an 80's or 90's project pick-up. Everyone is stuck believing their pickup is worth $3000-$5000 no matter how much rust it has, because "the engine will last forever!" :facepalm:
