    STOCK
    - Weather stripping / Door seals

    - Blow motor ticking (heard under glove box)

    - Do you have a spare tire under the bed?

    - If it is a dealer, make them service the transmission and change the fluid.
    There is no dipstick on these truck, so checking it is VERY much a PITA.

    -If it is a TRD - Off-Road check the Diff locker. If you don't use the locker for a long period of time, it can become "stuck" and not work. You can fix this yourself, but why? Let them fix it for you.

    - See if there are 3 or 4 leaf springs in rear of the truck.
    3 is stock and bottoms out easy.
    4 is the upgrade (TSB Springs) and are "better".

    Can't think of any more right off.....

    Hope that helps.

    Good call on the body lift. I'd never buy a truck that had one on it.

    In your searchj dont let a little frame rust be a deterent, I bought a 2006 back in September with 59k miles on it, had some frame rust, took a wire wheel and power drill to it last weekend and its like new.
