    what lot is that? they have trucks for days! ive been looking for a 1st gen.

    If you get that im jelly....lol

    Looks clean, go for a test drive and see how it feels. find a dirt lot (if they let you) and test to make sure the 4wd engages rights and runs smoothly. and check the frame for rust.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    For the price, sounds like it's true.

    Didnt even see the white one :spy: Idk, just trying to be careful with talk of odo rollbacks and whatnot. It does look pretty clean though. Only problem is that it's like an hour and a half away, and it's a little out of my price range, honestly. Idk... :confused: Maybe I'll go test drive it... when I have time...:ballchain:

    Crap... :(... just had a thought. Do I 1) grab this for around $12k.. OR... 2) look for something around $5k and spend the rest on mods :D decisions, decisions....

    Snag that one up for $10k if you can. That looks super clean. The interior and engine bay looks like one with only 40k. I don't thing anything funny has been going on with that truck from what I can tell in the pics.

    It looks really great. It is a rare find with those low miles, but I have seen it before - maybe an old dude who used it only some weekends to get a bag of mulch at Home Depot etc...
    I think the price is a little high though for the year model, regardless of the mileage.

    It's a Toyota truck only guy. He has a shit ton of 4runners too. He's a dealer, but he's private. So he buys these things cheap and sells them overpriced. I'd go somewhere else, personally.
