    I think it looks like a clean truck but a little overpriced for how many miles it has. If you could get it for like 15 thatd be a good price

    You know, I paid about $26K for my 2007 TRD (V6 auto, 4 door, short-bed) and don't have any of those extras (brand new from the dealership). From the pictures, it definitely looks good, real good. However, I understand your concerns, 121K miles is a lot. My 2007 only has 66K. However, I bought a Toyota Tacoma (1) cuz I really really wanted a sweet truck and (2) because I needed it to last forever. The best advice I can give is to (1) not rush into anything and (2) shop shop shop and compare compare compare. That's the only way you'll know if 17,500 is a fair deal. Have you checked Kelly Bluebook and the like? I hope more people respond to your question! If it were me??? I'd take it to a mechanic I trust to have it checked out, and if all looks good, yeah, I'd probably get it; assuming that it compared with what others were selling their Tacomas for... does this help?

    17200 is the loan value, so the price is fair. It depends on how much you drive. I do 40K per year so in two years I would hit 200K. I bought my 2006 this year with 35K miles. Good Luck. Stay away from KBB, check NADA.Com or get comps on Autotrader.com.

    Price seems fair for the mileage to me... personally I'd pay a little more for something with less miles on it. And I wouldnt be persueded by mods... thats the best part of owning a truck... doing your own mods. If you buy a stock truck, then you can mod it to your taste. This is assuming you have the funds for mods. If "mod money" is out of the question, this particular truck is nicely done.

    I'd say 15000 also. seems like all the stuff in there is kind of just fluff and not really worthy of cancelling out the 125000 miles or whatever:(

    for any other automobile I would say never spend that much on a truck with over 100K miles but from what ive seen tacomas will go at least twice as long as any other truck on the road and with those mods (expensive rims tires, interior...ect) i would offer 14 and settle somewhere between 15 or 16

    i would consider the price and how much money you have available, you dont want to spend all the 18k you saved up to get the truck then 5,000 miles later the truck starts having problems then you dont have the money to fix it.

    I think it is priced accordingly and its a awsome truck . With that being said, would you any vehicle with that many miles on it?

    Yes, Tacomas will last, and check the carfax for a maint history. But i would try and stay under 90k when purchasing.

    PS: maybe someone on here owns it?

    Unfortunately, that would be priced accordingly here in North TX area. It is a 4WD and if you would have found a stock truck for 15K with 70K miles and pay for the same mods(wheels/tires,lift,alarm,grill,DVD,etc..) You probably end up paying more. I would check it out in person to really know it's market value and speak with the owner regarding use history before making a serious offer. Mileage really doesn't tell the whole story.

    is it me, or does it not actually have trd seats? i mean i know theyre leather, but look at the shape. look like the base seats to me...

    and IMO the price is too high. I got my trd offroad access cab with 55k miles for $17k from a dealer. 15000 would be good though, like others have said.

    I would say that is a pretty accurate price. When I traded in my 2006 Sport it was moded to death with 114,000 and I got $20,000 on trade.

    I personally think you could find a better deal. I bought my 05 trd sport, double cab, 4x4, 4.0, 6 spd, over a year ago for 18000 and it had half the miles. Good lookin truck though! Good luck with whatever you do!

    A modified truck has a much narrower market than a stock one. Yes buying a modified truck if you plan on doing the same stuff can save you a bit of cash. But also keep in mind generally people who modify vehicles are younger and often don't take as good care of their vehicles as older people might. And for reference I bought an 05 double cab TRD off road 4x4/auto 3 weeks ago for $13,800 with 113k on it from a Toyota dealer. They had it advertised for $15,880 but upon a test drive I noticed instantly that it needed front wheel bearings. No big deal to me, but after about an hour of haggling I drove it away for $13,800. And I had just sold my 05 SR5 4cyl access cab 4x4 with 102k on it for $11,900 that morning so I wound up paying cash. I would keep looking.

    It doesn't tell you what lift kit is on it.

    It's going to make a difference - Icons with Total Chaos UCAs vs. a Revtek spacer lift. e.g.

    agreed. plus, depending on how long the bigger tires have been on there, the mileage is probably a little higher.

    if i sold my 05, which looks pretty damn good and has 87k, i'd ask 15 or 16k, and it's 4X4, 4dr, lift spacers, moto metal wheels, new tires. keep shopping around.
