    I just posted about purchasing a new 2011. While I was waiting to hear back from dealers I came across a 2006 DC TRD OR 4x4 Automatic on craigslist with very low miles and seems to be really clean.

    The only option I WISH it had was an AUX input. But I can live without that (and buy a new radio).

    The 2005s are known to be problematic. Just wondering how the 2006s did? It is JUST out of the warrantee as far as milage goes so no help if there are any issues.

    I guess the question is, would you buy a 2006 or wait to find a newer one?

    Depends on price and mileage. 2006 would be fine.

    No problems with my 06 other than the imfamous weak ass tailgates and poor mpgs. You can usually find a newer (07+) OEM aux equipped radio for $100 or less on this site. Its a plug and play.

    Stock for now
    I put 65k on my 2006 no major issues before trading it in. Things I had to have fixed during warranty were rear spring/harsh ride, brake squeal, oxygen sensor & air intake rattle tsbs.
    I purchased a Kenwood with front aux, usb & IPOD controls w/ fit kit from Crutchfield for $109. Sounded much better than the stock HU imo.

    [​IMG] I have 130K on my '06. You might get a little auto trans shutter but there is a product that takes it out.
    Front wheel bearing at 90K $400.! U joints at 90K replaced with greasable ones. Really great truck.
