    I am about a week away from potentially getting my first Taco, but I'm not sure if it's a good deal or not. I would welcome the advice from any other current Taco owners....

    Here are the specs:

    2005 4D SR5 Tacoma 2WD Prerunner 4.0L - 25K miles
    TRD Off-Road Package
    Bed liner, power windows, power locks, cruise control, alloy wheels, single CD

    Thing is clear title, good condition - He is asking $17,250....KBB private party value is $19,500

    Your thoughts?

    Sounds like a good deal. I paid $17,200 at a dealer for my '05 Access Cab V6 TRD Off Road with the same equipment and 28K miles.

    Can I get a little more input on this deal? Any good?

    I'm 25 years old and have done a TON of research, but I would appreciate any and all advice you can give....

    I actually picked her up on Tuesday! Loving it! Will definitely get pics up soon...I'm modding stuff now.

    The bedliner is the standard one from the factory. I did just order a Rugged Trail tri-fold tonneau cover for around $240.
