    Earlier i posted a question about the fog light switch not working, along with the 110/400 inverter switch not working. Well once it got dark outside the fog lights seemed to work seemlessly. The inverster still doesnt work and i am not sure why. That is the only flaw on this truck.. I am pretty happy with it:

    2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD "Sport" (no locker :() Its Access Cab, 6 spd, 6cyl, 4x4 with only 50000 miles, got it for $17,000. CLEAN!!!

    Seems like you did well. I bought my '06 4x4 in November '09 for $18.9K with 30K miles. Mine's a stick with a shell.

    I bought it in moriarty (sp?) which is east of Albuquerque.

    And I once paid 42000 for a base model 350z haha, then sold it for 25000, LIVE AND LEARN!!!! cars suck, buying used IMHO is best. And remember: dealers usually pay no more than "trade in value" for cars.
