    That would be the "clean retail" value. You're not a dealer, so you can't use retail price to justify your price.

    You're missing a federally mandated piece of safety equipment that belongs on the vehicle.

    This is the killer. That averages out to 30k a year. Most people look for 10-12k average annually when buying used.

    Again, you're referencing retail prices. What's that $7700 value hidden at the top of the screen shot? That's probably more inline with an accurate price.

    Of course "they" assured you he was meticulous, they had you as an interested buyer and said what they could for you to buy. Did it come with a folder with all the maintenance records? You'd need a folder to hold all those records since the glove box wouldn't be big enough to hold them all. If the previous owner was how they claim, surely they could provide any and all records of service they performed on the truck to put prospective buyers minds at ease.

    So you paid $9k +T&L from a dealer, added 20k to the odometer, used it for 2yrs, and expect to turn around and sell it for the same price? o_O Granted the Tacoma is a desirable truck and retains value, it's not that desirable or equitable in the condition yours is in.

    As others have said, you'd need someone with a pocket full of cash to sell your truck to as no lender would approve someone to purchase an 11yr old truck with 300k+ miles. If you can provide assurance in the form of documented service history, that can help your price, but without it, that leaves a lot of unknowns and worst case scenarios to be assumed.

    IMO, $5k would be too low for me to sell if it where mine, and realistically $7-8k range would possibly help get someone to at least come look at it and make an offer. Even here in the Seattle area, where the Tacoma tax is insane, you'd be hard pressed to get more than $7-8k for it.

    Here are a few comparisons in my area and what the sellers are asking for price wise.

    This is the closest in comparison, but still shy by 100k miles.

    One more but slightly different

    Im not basing it off of clean retail, I'm after 9k for the pickup. The 7,700 "hidden" value is ROUGH trade in...this pickup is not rough and its a private party sale, not a trade in. Thanks on the realistic price point tho. I sold the shell last night so now Im willing to drop the price some...but here $5k is way too low...I sold my 95 single cab 4x4 tacoma with 210k miles for that.

    Magic number.
    List it for $7700 and you'll probably get $7,250 within a week. :thumbsup:

    I would take the words "stranded" and "off-road" out of the description. The truck looks clean and remember your first offer is usually your best. I'd be patient and wait for the right buyer.

    As people stated above, its worth $6000 to at most to the right person $7250

    High Miles, only 20k of them are yours
    recent purchase of the truck now reselling (I would question why???)
    Seller states he has taking the truck off road, pics to prove it.
    Its too old to get a loan for so you need someone to have the cash to buy it.
    I'd use $9600 toward a newer Tacoma with lower miles and a warranty.

    This is alot of miles even for a Tacoma. The condition of the truck cosmetically isn't going to matter much when the truck is that high in mileage. Like others have said 7-8K.

    The high mileage doesn’t make me nervous, the lift, tires, and wheels make me nervous because it means the truck has had to work harder those miles.

    Why do you want to get rid of it?!?

    You will find the vast majority of people will not want a truck thats burned through most of it’s reliable miles.

    I’m not sure why you want to get rid of it.

    1. You paid to much for a truck with over 300,000 miles to begin with....sorry to say.
    2. You are getting some of the best opinions on Tacomas anywhere you can find.....the people telling you your truck is overpriced are for the most part "Enthusiasts" that know everything about these trucks. Also they are willing to pay top dollar for a great one.....yours is very nice....but....with 324,000 miles even the enthusiasts are not going to pay 9,500 for it...WAY TO MUCH...just my opinion.
    3. You need to find a sucker to sell it for that:spending:

    The tires have only been on the last 6k of its life, and the little lift has only been on the last 4k. I want to get rid of it because my plans are for a slide in camper...on top of which I still plan to haul dirtbikes and possibly a boat. If you know the 2.7L, its not a known powerhouse so Im selling for something with more room (cab and bed) and more power. Thanks

    If money is no issue, hang onto it for a bit and keep doing what you are doing.

    You might find someone to appreciate the truck for what it is and grab it.

    It took me a long time to sell my F250 because I wanted 3k over KBB for the mods it had. Found someone who appreciated it eventually.

    The whole, waiting and you will find a buyer is kinda like this: Wish in one hand, shit in the other, see which one fills up first.
    Ask yourself this: Is there a unicorn buyer out there looking for a 10+ year old 4 cylinder access cab with 375K miles at a price of 9K ?

    The wait and the buyer will come is shit advice OP, just sell it and move on.
