    An acquaintance at work is selling his truck. Tell me what you think of the truck, the price, and anything I need to be aware of or look out for. This is my first truck.

    2008 Silver AccessCab V6 Auto PreRunner SR5 TRD-offroad w/ tow package. AZ paint protection, 6CD changer, ladder rack in bed. 20,157 miles. He offered it to me 6 months ago for $24k, he offered it to me yesterday for $19k. Blue Book Private Party is about $21/22k. He said he's had it on Craig's List 4 times at $20k. Paying cash doesn't matter to Private Party right? Either way he's getting the amount upfront yeah?

    Here's a pic - http://yfrog.com/j8f4ljj

    He's the second owner. The first owner sold it because it was his wife's and she died. They're selling it now because they're downgrading.

    Nearly everything looks good cosmetically; they barely drove it. There is a big swooping line on the tailgate where it got keyed- he was told it would take $300 to fix. But that can't be right..? There is a mark on the roof about 6" long from running into a tree probably.

    I haven't test drove it yet.

    Thoughts?

    the paint protection is an extra coating because it gets 120 here in the summer
