    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    The suspension looks shot, especially the rear end. You'd likely want to dump about $1k into front and rear springs and shocks.

    Is it Manual? Auto? SR5? Power everything? AC and cruise indicates a decent trim package.

    FWIW, AAA gave me a hair under $5K when they totalled my 93 ("Pickup," not Tacoma) 4WD Xcab 4-banger (22RE) with 200k miles last year...that was fair market value out here in California for a super duper clean stock truck. In NM, I think prices are generally lower, but also the trucks are not rusted out, so that is good...

    It is also hard to tell without better pix of the interior and exterior condition.

    Where is steve-o? He needs to chime in on this for the NM market....
