    Greetings, All...

    I have to be honest, I am not official yet. In the next few weeks Im going to be in the market for a new Taco... well, new for me :p I just can't QUITE afford brand spankin....

    What Im lookin for: 2006-2008 Tacoma 4D, under 60k, TRD Sport Package (SR5 optional... if that can be combined?)

    Preferences: SILVER, Indigo Blue, White, Black (in that order)... NO Red, Gold, or that lighter blue. A decent set of OR or AT tires. A sexy brunette with green eyes and an hourglass figure. And no excessive wear and tear workhorses.

    What I'd like to pay: $19,500 out the door, or better. (financed with 10% down... trying to build credit score)

    My newbie questions:

    Is this price unreasonable? Could I do much better?

    What is the best avenue for vehicle searches? kbb? trader?

    What's an easy way to spot a GREAT deal, or the potential for one?


    Ok, I have quite a few other questions, but don't want to go crazy in one post. Guess Im just looking for tips on the used buying process of these trucks, if any.

    Thanks to all in advance for any help, comments, or answers to my questions you may provide... it really is greatly appreciated!
