    For that price, I'd imagine you could probably buy a totally new truck.

    I just paid that for an '09. It was the TRD OR with towing package. New on the lot they are listing for 35 in iowa. I'm not sure where you guys are getting these deals but they aren't around me. kbb for mine listed 31,500 and nada was 29,000.

    You should be able to get that truck for $4000 less than invoice on a similarly equipped new one. Offer 26,000. Edmunds has the trade at $22,400 which is reasonable for a 2 year old truck. There is no way they would offer more than $24K Actual cash Value on a trade for an 09.

    I would not offer anymore than $26,000, If they don't take it, you should be able to buy a new one for less than 30K

    KBB has retail at the Market value for a NEW ONE!!!!!

    Bottomline is buy a new one if you are prepared to spend $28K and I am a huge advocate of buying used. but not at that price....you are saving nothing!!!

    Honestly if i had know i could get a brand new one for under 30 with every option available, i would have got a new one.

    When kbb and nada showed my truck for 29k to 31k, i thought 28k was a good deal.
