    Luv the old hilux's but the 3.0s are not a fun motor to work with. If you get it make sure to plain the block, heads and use updated head gaskets like Felpro.

    I'd definitely check it out. Show up with $475-500.

    Keep an extra $50 in your back pocket just in case.

    This is not a '96, and not a Tacoma.... if they are advertising it as a '96, I'd be suspicious. And I would never buy a Toyota with the 3.0L V6, but that's just me.

    a friend of mine had a toy pickup with the 3.0, rolled from 200-300k miles no problems at all , maybe he got lucky , not close to as good as a 22r though, sounds decent to me at 600, i'd say listen to lex

    Honestly, for 600 Bucks I don't really see how you could go wrong. I think it is all in the way you drive it and mine had problems before I ever bought them and I knew that up front. I guess I should have said that
