    So I'm in search of a Tacoma. I'm most likely gonna go used private seller simply because of dealer mark-up. Right now my daily driver is my street bike if you wan't pic's I can post em :bounce. I've been lightly searching around for a pick up but lately all I've noticed is full size pick up's seeing how the heaviest thing I'ma haul is my bike. Any who I came across this http://chico.craigslist.org/cld/2977648130.html on CL today and at that many miles in what seems to be great condition I'd ask the die hard's what to look at when I go to look at it. Thanks in advanced.

    Check the frame for rust. Specifically where the spare tire hangs. Has the timing belt been changed? Check the quality of the lift. Check for drive line vibration. Looks pretty clean. Hopefully that guy doesnt mean 19000 dollars. 3" body lifts suck.

    I re read it and it said it was a procomp lift. I would take it on a pretty serious test drive. Speed bumps looking for noises, wobbles, squeaks blah blah blah.
