    I'm finalizing the sale of one of my cars this week and going to pick up a taco. Just about all my other cars that I've owned have been Turbo AWD Mitsu's but this will be my first truck. I'm very excited. There's 2 I'm currently looking at but I have some questions.

    My first pick is a Silver 08 AC OR Rugged Trail w/39k for $23K and what looks like a 3" lift but I'll confirm what kind tomorrow. Are there any other differences between a OR Rugged Trail and a regular OR besides wheels and the unpainted fender flares? Are there TSB's out for the 08's?

    My second pick is a Black 05 AC OR w/39k all stock for $20k (I'll def be checking the engine mounts and that the TSB's have been done.)

    Which would you go for? Both of these trucks are pretty far away so is there anything else I should keep an eye out for? I don't want to make 7hr drive and find something I missed in the adds.

    Thanks in advance

    would def check the silver one for off roading damage, but from what i see, both are great. id go for the newer silver one.

    wait. come to think of it, check em both for off roading damage (if you see both)

    also check for frame rust and any tsb's that could be done. the tailgate on the 05 pops into my head, as well as suspension.

    The 05 seems a bit high on price, I bought a 08 AC Sport with 23k for 22,500 and it had custom rims.

    Cool thanks guys. What are the differences between the OR RT and a reg OR? Any other differences besides the wheels and flares? I really like the silver one cause there would be limited things I'd have to do it. (ha I say that now) I'm pretty sure I can talk the 05 down abit though.
