    Hi guys,
    I found a 2004 2wd, Auto 4cyl crew cab Prerunner for sale at a local dealer for $14500. Has the TRD offroad package and a spray-in bedliner. What do you think about the price? Not sure if this has a rear locker or not, do they come standard with the TRD package? Also wondered if anyone had Carfax availability they'd be willing to hook me up with. I really like it. I test drove an 05 Prerunner DC but I did not like the low seating position...

    Congrats & welcome to tw!

    Try edmunds.com if you want to see if it was a deal. The dealer can pull the carfax report free of charge.

    Not sure what you mean "low seating position on the 05". I love my 05, it sits up high. I had an 03 before this. But the truck wasn't roomy enough.

    Sorry I didn't check that before posting. KBB value is $16770. But I also thought you guys might have knowledge of what similar trucks have been going for... This was a leased vehicle, and I'm wondering if this is good or bad as far as maintenance. Truck is clean as a whistle except for just a tad bit of grime at the head/block. Do these 4cyl engines have any trouble with gaskets?

    As far as the low seating position on the 05, I mean simply that the drivers seat sits low in relation to the dash and I found the visibility somewhat lacking. It didn't help that it was a TRD sport with the big hood bump... But I will say the 05 was very nice, inside and out. I really like the placement of the oil filter on those. A little out of my price range, however...

    Cool, that sounds like a deal. Less miles and with a V6. Good to know, thanks...

    Congrats and good luck with it!
    BTW, Does it have the rear locker on it?
