    So I was searching the net and I found a clean 2004 DC 4x4 OR Limited with 65000 miles and they want 17900. Has a clean Auto Check. Its local and without rust. What does everyone think? Good deal? Cant get the pictures to upload.

    They are expensive everywhere, but cheaper in some places. Just keep looking, low mileage first gens are out there for a decent price. Traveling a ways to get one could save you some $$.

    Depending on where you're at, they can go for a lot. I looked for months before I found one I would buy. It wasnt 4x4, but it had everything else going for it so I bought it. I didnt NEED 4x4 at all, just thought it would be nice to have, just in case.

    If you find a clean truck that meets your specifications, I would consider buying it. '04 DC TRD with 4x4 is the most expensive combo when it comes to the 1st Gens.

    Don't settle for a 2nd gen. If you like it and plan on keeping for a while? Buy it.

    they made a few 4cyl double cabs with the 5 speed.

    and I agree, way too high of a price. Offer 14k.

    I just like the styling better and wish they would go back to smaller trucks. And I am a bit of a smart ass.
