    I just sold my 1994 Pickup for $2K one day after putting signs in the window. Never even listed it anywhere. I had 8 calls on it today just from passers by. I could have gotten more out of it I think but it got a good home.

    I'm going to miss that little pickup! :(

    Wow. Great shape for a 1994. Something like that would fetch over $5K around here. :rolleyes:

    Man! I wish I had $2K. I would definitely have given you $2K for that truck. Hopefully I will find a 4x4 truck for ~$4K in the next two years (I need a toyota).

    Congrats on selling your truck! :)

    Very impressive. I would have paid more for that. It looks like it is in excellent condition. It would have made a perfect DC road car. It wouldn't look the same after 4 months here.

    Nice pickup. Definetley worth 2000 .

    I remember when I sold our 89 SR5 4x4 22R-E, I was bummed for a while.
    The 22RE motor was bulletproof and returned over 20 mpg. That was with 32" tires.

    Hope I don't get flamed for this but I think the build quality of the Pre-Tacos was better then the current Tacoma pick-ups.

    It was a 2WD/4cyl/5spd reg cab. It had no power anything, no A/C, and a 144K miles on bald tires. But yes it looked and drove fantastic. Other than a couple small dents and a cracked 3rd brake housing from an ice sheet this winter flying off a semi.

    KBB was putting at $2400 with good tires, and Edmond's was putting it at $1400.

    I was going to list it in the paper and on Craigslist for $2600 but this guy kept me from having to field numerous phone calls and race home for test drives, and I never did anything but put signs in it a day ago.

    If I could have seriously gotten $5K for it I am kicking myself right now.

    I agree, that truck was bullet proof. I drove it hard... as if it were a WRC car, and it would just ask for more. Part of the reason I didn't buy another manual transmission. Too temping :D

    Mine got 28mpg if drove properly... I usually got 24mpg :D

    I'm sure I'm weepy because I had this truck for 8 years. Longest I ever had a vehicle before that was maybe 2 years. They just didn't last beyond 80K. I never had anything major go wrong on this truck. I changed a starter, brakes, and a thermostat, and besides oil, that's it. If the engine and paint last that long on my new TACO... I'll be one happy permanent Toyota patron.

    I agree. This is my first Tacoma also (see sig)

    I am hoping for the best but I would love to be able to go back and buy a solid-front axle 22R or 22RE 5-Speed 4x4 Toyota.
