    Hey guys,

    I am purchasing a used Tacoma from out of town.

    The seller said a lady backed in to his driver side running board.
    Here are some pictures:

    There is a couple of small dents on the rear passenger door. The owner said he re-bent the running board with a jack. Is there any serious damage here that I should worry about?

    I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you!

    doesn't look like any damage.

    If you are still concerned, have him drop the running board and check the area around the mounting holes for any damage.

    Good luck

    Haha good point. I figured the damage isn't much.. just wanted to make sure. I did take the truck for an inspection but they didn't note any body damages on the report.

    I'd be more worried about the amount of rust that is already under there than the bent running board...

    a bent running board that can only be identified from the bottom is you main concern?
