    Was actually higher than I was expecting. It's a very generous offer, until you start looking for a similar replacement (1st gen Xtra cab 4x4 TRD Off Road).

    There aren't a lot of after market items on the truck, but is there anything I should take off of it before they crush it? I only had the truck for a few weeks, so it's pretty much all stock.

    Do you have round cup holders in your center console? I would be interested in that, the square holders are useless.

    She's gone but not forgotten.
    Pull the seat belts out if they're still working. 1st gens have an issue with the return springs getting weak, making you slam your belt in the door every friggin time you get out of the truck.

    I'd strip anything you could sell - even if cheap. That's a little more cash for your new ride. Radio and HVAC controls might be something you could sell.

    I am looking for the circuit board on the back of the ac unit that the light bulbs mount too. If you would PLEASE take that out I would buy it for sure. Its easy to get to if you are going to take the radio and stuff out.
