    1998 Toyota Tacoma Limited TRD / Extra-cab
    $$ SOLD $$

    Overview: I purchased this direct from the dealer. It has very low miles as it was a second vehicle and eventually became a wheeler. The SAS was done in 2005. First install was a flop and then it was rebuilt professionally by Big Rocks Offroad in Vancouver, WA. This is a highly capable truck that you can still drive to the trail. Trail proven on the Rubicon and many trails in Moab. Highway driving you get used to as it has some bump steer. Engine power is amazing. There some scratches and dents. My intent was to tube the back end but never got to it. I use the truck so little anymore that I have decided to sell it. This truck is highly documented with original window sticker and nearly all receipts for parts and labor. Please let me know if you need references to check quality of work and capability.

    Free country my friend. Wasn't bashing. Opinions are like assholes and I merely gave mine.

    Some people have no clue what their truck is actually worth.

    Trying to help him price it appropriately so maybe he can make a sale.

    Id say its a good deal If i were in the Market i would give a solid offer of 15400. This has less miles and more work it seems then the 03 link. and the cage will survive a roll over considering stock tacos do pretty good in roll over but just add gusseting for a cheap fix

    Or take 4-5 years tring to bulid a truck and take up all the space in the garage
    Better off buying one
