    I am looking into buying a tacoma from a buddy of mine. He bought it new, it is an 06 double cab 4wd TRD. It has a 6 inch procomp lift with 35" BFG MT and train horns. It has a westin bull bar with two Hella lights too. He has taken good care of the truck. It has 100k miles on it which are mostly highway. I can buy it for around 14k. Any thoughts or advice. Thanks

    It may even be 13,500 not sure but 14,000 highest. I checked edmunds and nada they both say the truck is worth around 16,500. I am driving it tom. The truck is a head turner. 100k is nothing for a Yota right?? Thanks guys for the input. Is there any issues that I should be looking out for?

    That's a good price. If the truck had average mileage, it would be worth at least 4-5k more. 14k is more than fair. Out here, it would be sold in a day for that price.
