    Just bought a 2001 SR5 4x4 dbl/cab, 5 spd, for $6800. Only has 45,000 miles on the truck. I'm the 3rd owner. Aside from a slight dent in the front bumper the truck looks almost new. It was always garaged so paint is in very good shape. New tires & belts . Seems like I got a good deal.


    I have owned toyota's for the last 12 years(Corolla/Camry) and wanted something to take out in the woods & haul firewood, as well as
    navigate the snow/ice on our country roads.

    One of my other hobbies is Stihl pro saws with a few Husky's thrown in.
    Hope to get great advice here. Will most likely keep the truck stock.

    A former client of mine...& a divorce that had the usual asset split. She was going to put it on Craigslist. But after hearing about the condition/miles of the truck I literally bought it over the phone. Good thing , as I was on my way the next day to a Ford dealer to look at a few
    Rangers/F 150's.:eek:

    I'd say Iowa as well. Unfortunately w/i a 15-20 mile radius of Champaign/Urbana it's all basically corn & soy. It's possible to find patches of rolling country/trees though...but we're wayyyy tooo flat around here:(
