    this is a 2011 toyota tacoma 4wd that was traded in to our dodge store. this truck has not passed NC inspection since it has the following issues that are needed: tires are below required specs, exhaust is missing the muffler, the right rear tail light lens is broken, power steering is inop, the suspension has been modified, rear bumper is twisted, and the clutch needs adjusting to be 100%. Despite these issues this is a great price and reduced due to these issues.

    It's crazy that it's still on the market. It's been on here a bunch of times.

    Since it's local to you, go and do the world a favor and light that thing on fire... needs to be put out of its misery :pout:

    Even if it were in perfect condition, I'd hang my head in shame each time I got into that mini-monster truck. That is just silly.

    I just clicked to read but damn I love you guys. To the naked eye that truck looks okay. Pricey as hell, but it is a stealership.

    expect your tires to wear unevenly for the life of the vehicle. "run away simba, run away and never return!"

    I must have scored on mine! 2007 manual 4 cyl 4x4 with 47k for 13000 clean title 100 percent stock and practically new. One tiny ding with touch up paint over it on the tailgate. I did a 4 hour inspection on the whole thing before I pulled the trigger. Steal of a deal
