    So here's my story..... About a year ago my wife and I decided to sell our 08 4Runner to get rid of the $500 a month payment and kill off some credit card debt. We bought a 96 4Runner that was a total piece of crap for about $3300, I put about $1500 in parts over the course of a few months and have been driving it for a year with no payments. Well my wife is tired of driving my Tacoma and has been talking about buying a new 4Runner. So on Thursday I noticed a 03 at work that had been traded in and not inspected yet. It's 4wd Limited fully loaded, 78k!!! on the odometer. I can get it out the door $15,500 as-is no warranty. I work at the dealership as a reconditioning tech and inspected it myself. Needs a cv boot, new muffler (smashed) and tires. Would you buy it?

    Looks a lot like mine. I bought mine for about the same with more miles a year almost two ago. You can find cheaper but if it's clean it's tough to pass

    just noticed where you're located. Since you're in AZ check the paint. I didnt really look at mine and now the clear is starting to fade on the A pillars and the door window belt area. Hood constantly has fade that i polish out.
