    hey guys i have a problem i bought my 2004 tacoma double cab about 10 months ago for $10,000 and i love it. it has 93000 miles. This past weekend and our deer camp a guy told me he wanted to buy it for $14,000. i don't know whether to sell it or keep it. And if i sell it should i buy an f-250, Z71 or another tacoma. I love my truck but would also like something bigger. Im looking at a $4,000 profit. What would you guys do in my situation?:confused:

    I would say sell it, $4000 is $4000! Especially if you would like to get something bigger anyways! I just got my Tacoma a few months ago and really like, but I also have a Duramax and that is a nice truck. The Tacoma is my trails and running around town truck. The Duramax is not the best trail truck, but it does tow my camper and anything else I would ever own! Would a bigger truck or diesel truck fit into your price range?

    the only real essential mods for a new car (in my book) are the WeatherTech floormats

    I would otherwise focus on putting the cash towards paying off the car :cool:
