    Ok picked up a used 2008 4X4, CC, V6, AUTO, SR5, OFFROAD, SILVER last night. 20,000 miles from a private seller.

    Here is the photo of the old and the new together.

    1998, 4X4, Extended cab, 2.7L, SR5, 5spd, Black. (Going up for sale) have owned the 1G since 1999.

    Not whole lot of difference so far. The 2G has more cabin room which is nice. I really like the powertrain of the 2G, very smooth seems pretty robust. I notice a little cabin shake that I didnt feel with the 1G. suppose the door pillars stiffen up the 1G extended cab significantly over the 4dr extended 2G.

    Overall I am happy so far.

    I put the 1998 on CL for a little while this morning @ $7000. I got bombarded with phone calls. I had 2 dealers offering me $6500. I need to find the title...its around here some where. I guess I am asking too little for my area.
