    Hey everyone, I posted this in the new member forum also, but seeing as there are some questions, I'm gonna post here too... hope that's all good!-----------------------------------------------------------------------Original Post:Greetings, All...I have to be honest, I am not official yet. In the next few weeks Im going to be in the market for a new Taco... well, new for me! I just can't QUITE afford brand spankin....What Im lookin for: 2006-2008 Tacoma 4D, under 60k, TRD Sport Package (SR5 optional... if that can be combined?)Preferences: SILVER, Indigo Blue, White, Black (in that order)... NO Red, Gold, or that lighter blue. A decent set of OR or AT tires. A sexy brunette with green eyes and an hourglass figure. And no excessive wear and tear workhorses.What I'd like to pay: $19,500 out the door, or better. (financed with 10% down... trying to build credit score)My newbie questions:Is this price unreasonable? Could I do much better?What is the best avenue for vehicle searches? kbb? trader?What's an easy way to spot a GREAT deal, or the potential for one?Ok, I have quite a few other questions, but don't want to go crazy in one post. Guess Im just looking for tips on the used buying process of these trucks, if any.Thanks to all in advance for any help, comments, or answers to my questions you may provide... it really is greatly appreciated!~J~

    Welkommen. As for your questions, you should be able to find a nice truck for 19,500. Probably be in the 06-07 range, but that's better. Silver is the most popular color, especially in the dub cab, so I am sure you won't have trouble finding one. If the truck is a Sport, it's SR5. But, since you only want a 6 speed, you'll have to get 4x4. Hope that helps.

    Hey, thanks for the help and tips guys! Appreciate it!

    I do know where La Habra is, but spend most of my time in Orange and south.

    So how often you guys do those silverado trips? That's basically my backyard. Im up in Big Bear at least once a month, also... if y'all have any kind of gatherings up there?
