    Hey guys, I found a 08 tacoma 4x4, double cab, trd off road, with icon coil overs and 33in bfg all terrains. I found it on ebay..It has under 80k miles, body isn't in perfect condition, some scratches..ect. Clean title. I think I can get it for 17k. Is that not a deal of the century?
    Thanks for the input

    the thing is, normally scammers don't post flaws. He said that there are some scratches, and the front bumper is a little lose on one side. It could just be a good deal

    I would assume something like the title isnt as "Clean" as its stated. Or it could have some major engine-tranny problems. Or it could be a BS post all together. But like i said man, I paid almost 19 with new tires for my 06 with 110K So an 08 with 80... for 17k With 2000 dollar coil overs... It sounds WAY to good to be true.

    a 08 TRD DC 4x4 would go $24-28k near me, so i say buyer beware

    He says he is he is the 2nd owner, used synthetic oil every 4-6k miles. The lift and upper control arms/AAL were all put on professionally 15k miles ago. Not going to put the link up right now haha

    is it in your area, Can you go and look at it in person? I think that will save you a great amount of time determining if you should purchase this vehicle.

    It is a few hours north of me..which makes me a little weary. But if I can get it for so cheap and say it needs a 1000 dollar part that I cant tell while looking at it, it would still be worth it.

    If it needs a $ 1000 part walk away. It would already be fixed and charged what it is really worth.
