    So I think I'm gonna try and find a slightly used tacoma and save some cash. I found an 08 Access cab TRD Offroad with the 6 speed. Basically better then what I was looking for but a different color (which really isn't that big of a deal for me).

    Is there anything I should look out for in an 08? Its got 35k on it.

    Nothing I can really think of to look out for. Just look out for stuff like any other used car. Try and get a carfax for it to see its real history. 08' is still a fairly new truck so there shouldnt be any issues with it.:cool: Can we ask how much they want for it?

    23k. Which I think is a pretty good deal since I was gonna spend almost 28 for a brand new SR5. Now ill have the rear locker!!

    23 is not bad for that truck, plus you get the 7 yr 100k powertrain warranty. I would check new first, see how much difference there is.

    I was looking at a 2011 Access cab SR5 4x4 for 27. Saving 4,000 and getting the TRD Offroad is worth it. Plus its already had its engine broken in.
