    So I'm looking to buy a 04 4x4 with 90k on the odometer. Its a TRD Off Road SR5.

    Its a one owner truck but what types of things should I look for when I go check it out at the dealer? I own a FJ so I'm familiar with Toyota's in general, but any tips would be great.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Frame rust on the INSIDE, check the oil see how it looks, check body lines see how well they match up, test drive it see if it has any major pulling when you let off the wheel, ect. I cant really think of any common problems, manily because they dont have any problems haha. Good luck! :cool:

    Well if it's a 5-speed manual, the first thing you should do is take out your center console/cupholder/shifter trim and send it to me
