    So I traded in Ol'Blue 52 miles away and I'm on my way home from work and what to hell there it sets for sale a 1/2 mile from the house.
    I guess Carmax sent it to auction or something.
    I know the tranny was hosed and the rear main was leaking oil Bigtime.

    Same thing sorta happened to me. In 2009, I traded in my tricked out 2006 Mustang GT in Austin, TX. In late 2009, it shows up parked outside an adjacent office building on Lackland AFB. Later found out, some USAF civilian worker had bought it. It was so strange seeing it driven by someone else--still looked great!

    Seems sort of weird< made me realize I do miss it, It was a sweet looking truck. I have a whole display case full of trophys I won with it.
    About 30 in all out of 33 shows.

    Hey gunner76137, I just drove past that truck 2hrs ago. I thought that was a good looking Xrunner. Believe it or not, I bought a 1985 CJ7 from that same dealership back in 2002 for $4200. They didn't know it had a 350V8 in it. They told me it was a inline6 :D

    Did you stop at the chinese food place next door called "Ho Ho Kitchen"

    Oh, I live in the 76001 area

    One sold at NM auction (blue 05 x-runner with 105k) in below average condition for $9,100 on 6/29. Could it be this one?

    I stopped by there tonight and talked to him, he bought it from Carmax not knowing the tranny was screwed up and he paid 1000 to get it fixed, Its an 05 with 109,00 miles on it an he wants 14,000 for it
