    This Taco was my late son's. He put his heart and soul into it. He passed at the age of 16 in 2007 10 days before his 17th birthday. He did not get to enjoy all the mods that he worked so hard for. I've been looking around on the interwebs for a similar truck with no luck. I found one 1996 with no mods for $11K. I am considering selling it but need to know what a fair price would be. Any help you kind folks share would be greatly appriciated. Here are the particulars:

    • 1996
    • 257K miles
    • SR5 extra cab
    • New off road clutch
    • New Magna Flow exhaust
    • New timing belt and water pump
    • New wheel bearings and seals
    • New calipars and breaks
    • Recent top end service
    • 3" Fabtech Suspension system with coil overs
    • 3" Performance Accessories body lift
    • 33x12.50r15 Maxxis Bighorns
    • 15x8 Incubus Offroad wheels
    • ARB bumper with custom brackets to accomodate 3" body lift
    • Allsouth Customs full front end 1/4" skidplate laser engraved
    • 8,000lb. Ramsey winch (never used)
    • Optima red top battery
    • 2 Hella 500 Offroad lights
    Every thing works on this truck except the cruise contol. I've been trying to teach his sister to drive it and she just can not get the hang. Allsouth Autosports in Buford Ga did most of the mods. Here is the link to some pics.

    First off im sorry for your loss,


    as for a value of the truck, this one seems to be a great collaboration of parts and vehicle. Unfortunately the mileage is beyond what most what to invest in as a "New to me" vehicle. When it comes to selling a truck like this you can get a good amount, but only when the right buyer is around. Others will chime in on what they paid for there higher mileage trucks, also what engine does the truck have.

    I gotta say this truck has pulled out other trucks twice its size. The motor and tranny perform like new. Both have been fully serviced. The first owner put 250K all highway miles. It was totally stock when it was purchased from the original owner.

    Thanks. There are not a lot of 96's for sale. Could be they are all in junkyards by now or they are real keepers. I'm a huge toyota fan. (even with all of the recall crap). The best I can see is between $7500 - $11000. That's a big spread.

    stock for now
    i hate to burst your bubble but your not going to get anything close to that unless the person who buys it from you realizes the value of the extra parts. lots of time mods actually decrease the value of the vehicle. and with that many miles i cant see you getting more than 4 or 5 grand.

    i only paid 7400 cash for my 1997 with only 88k on her. I dont think you will get more than 3,000-6,000.

    You might get lucky and find somebody who realizes how much work has gone into it but you would probably be better off finding a stock bumper and wheels on craigslist for a couple hundred and selling the bumper, winch, skidplate, and wheels seperately.
