    Oh god what the hell could be worse than fake stick on vents?...


    And and those decals. Dear lord


    Although it sounds like a decent deal considering such low miles and 4x4 is a plus along with the locker

    What's with the discoloring on the intake manifold? Is it normal for the rust belt?

    nope
    looks like an ok deal.

    i paid $8500 for an 01 TRD with 96k miles in washington in 2011.

    KBB supports this being the range you should pay. excellent condition for that truck is ~$9000

    Ask him to show you receipts for timing belt change.....if he hasn't done it maybe he will budge a bit on the price......but if not, still a good deal.......just wear a mask on the way home when u buy it so no one sees you with those ridiculous "hood vents" and pinstripes and silhouette sticker of a PAC-man ghost on the rear glass

    it may just be me, but the hood looks mis-aligned and the sidemarkers have silver trim, but the grill has chrome trim. May be a sign of front end damage:notsure:

    It looks like the hood was not closed all the way on the last pic. That could be why it looks misaligned.

    I figured the hood may have been popped to see the engine after I posted, but if you blow up pic #9 of the front end you will see the passenger light is way off, and the side marker trim is cracked.

    I think if you could get him down to 9k, maybe 9.5k, it would be a pretty good deal.

    The hood alignment and gap in every picture looks funky.

    Yeah the hood wasn't fully closed in any of these pics, but I do see what you mean about the passenger headlight. Didn't even notice that when I was looking at it. I text the guy this morning asking for the VIN so I could run it. He said he'd send it when he gets off work at 1700, but he also said another guy that offered him $9800 is coming to look at it at 1730.
