    Hello to everyone. I will hopefully be buying my first Tacoma tomorrow and I wanted some advice on what you folks thought about a price I should push for.

    Specs:
    07 double cab
    v6 sr5 tdr off road
    13.5k

    Thats basically it. From what I've read on the dealers website, there aren't any fancy added options. The dealer is asking for 26,300 which is very close to the blue book value. How far down do you think I should start off at? Thanks

    Prerunner or 4x4?

    Back in '07 I had a dealer willing to sell me an '07 Speedway Blue DC Prerunner TRD O/R for $25K OTD. Should have bought that damn truck....

    In a nutshell, 4x4 has four wheel drive, Prerunner is 2wd but looks like a 4x4.

    pre-runner isnt 4x4

    Take a good look underneath to get a idea if the truck was a rock crawler, or looks in good condition.
    put the truck in 4wd, both hi and lo, and also check the locker is operational.
    If you not used to how these work, find out. 4-lo and the locker should only be done on loose gravel/mud, but if you do have to do it pavement, keep it straight for minimum distance.

    From what I have read on edmunds, it seems like around 21-22k is where I should start off, does that sounds reasonable?

    That sounds alot better! 26K seems high. for a couple more K you could get a new one
