    Hey everyone just a noob question, ,not really sure how much my truck is worth as it sits, KBB just really doesnt do justice for someone who is looking for a good 1st gen taco IMO or any vehicle that someone is really in the market for what i have is a 96 tacoma 4x4 2.7l with a list of my truck as it sits:

    197k mi on chasis
    Brand new rebuilt motor with all new parts w/ one yr warranty
    Brand new Tranny (auto)
    regeared rear diff. so it drives and shifts like stock, def. doesnt feel straining at all
    Newish tires (33' Mud Star)
    3" body lift
    adjustable coilovers
    Brand new Warn premium locking hubs

    thanks and please no bashing, just trying to get some insight thanks :)

    its got 197k but everything is practically brand new, im really not even thinking about selling it cuz of all the money i just invested in the new motor and tranny. i bought it from a guy and a month later a cam shaft broke, so i had the whole motor rebuilt, all new parts, and then the tranny didnt hold up so i just had it rebuilt, its been a florida truck in its selling history and has no rust or chasis damage, just trying to get an estimated value from you guys, thanks again

    Body lift and single cab are a minus as far as value, and so is the 2.7l with 33" tires.

    The rebuilt motor could be either a good or a bad thing. How many miles were on it when it was rebuilt? If the truck didn't have a lot of miles when the motor was rebuilt, people will look at that as a sign that it probably wasn't treated very well in its life. Also, who does the rebuild work is an important factor.

    Now seeing the mods to the interior there is only a selected market that would want that. And i really don't know the prices in FL but if it were here Id say 4,500 maybe 5,000 but that's pushing it.

    I'd ask 5k and let them talk you down to 4.5k.

    in this case the mods hurt the value IMO. Also the auto paired with the 2.7L and 33's doesn't help.

    is it regeared?

    well im pretty certain the truck was abused for a good portion of its life, but the motor only has 1k mi on it as it sits, and the motor was stripped and rebuilt by a local machinest who is well reputable..i didnt go with the cheapest guy, i like to have fun, but i dont abuse my vehicle nor plan to so i wanted someone with a good name and warranty, just lookin at some rough numbers tho nothin to the penny, if someone was in the market for one, what would you pay for it is all im getting at, thanks again

    oh good, that helps A LOT. What gears are in it, Im assuming 4.88's? You could probably get 5000 to 5500 out of it with it being regeared.

    edit:
    wait just saw that the rear is welded. not too good for a daily driver. Your buyer will have to be someone looking to use it as a hunting/trail vehicle.

    not sure, the regearing was done before i bought it, but when you put it in drive it will start to coast a good 10+mph without even givin it gas, its really easy to drive and doesnt feel stallish or straneous at all

    That's not posi-track that's locked and that's not good for street driving that hurts your value a lot.

    Because driving on pavement will cause the rear tires to wear out super fast. Not to mention the added strain it puts on driveline components.

    with the rear end being welded and a rebuilt motor and tranny you will be lucky to get 3,500 out of it in my opinion, unless you find someone looking for a hunting rig that has the extra cash...Don't get me wrong it's a nice truck and all but you probably won't get 5K
