    A 2010 TRD Sport 4x4 for $27,000? Come on now...Not sure where your shopping for trucks but let me know. I'll buy from there next time. For that truck the sticker would be $30-32,000 mininum depending on TRD packages.

    Here are a few listing for 2007 4x4's in my area. $25-27,000 like I said. Private party may be a little cheaper but not much...

    Even PreRunners are pulling $25K asking price.

    I agree, something is up with that rig. Either it's been wrecked or something is mechanically wrong with it.

    I'm actually kinda diggin that Taco! If it were in CA I'd probably go check it out. But VA is a bit far for me to buy a Taco...even if it is that clean...
    Then again the purple reminds of something...:)

    I'm tellin' ya...The only way he got the caster even close was to add that positive camber. That truck needs UCA's. The stock UCA's essentially give you two options...0 Camber = shitty wandering low caster numbers and the 33" or 285 tires eating at the metal cab mount deal in the back of the fender. More postive camber on the stock UCA will give you the oppourtunity to dial in more caster and pull the wheel out of the back of the wheel well and off the cab mount deal.

    Your tires a tad bowed but they arent at 1.5 positive camber like that truck!

    That truck will bald out the outter edges of the BFG's in 5,000 miles or less.

    I know because I just went throuh this saga and finally gave up and ordered a set of LR UCA's to go with my 2.5" Billie lift. The $420 cost on a set of Light Racing UCA's will save me a couple grand in KM2 replacement costs over the next couple years.

    That truck is rolling on the stock UCA's.
