    Another 1st gen?! I think it might be worth it here's the link

    http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/ctd/2406368437.html

    I want it cause it has the v6 Nd it's supercharged, automatic :/ and it's a prerunner without a lift with about 10k less miles

    Mine has a 4cyl 4x4 5spd, Im debating cause I'll loose the 4x4 I don't offroad much but it's fun and easy when I do

    Let me know what everyones opinion is I really need some help!!

    Complete waste of time/money in my opinion. You won't get nearly the value for your trade in, not to mention that the truck you're looking at is supercharged which usually means a shortened lifespan for the engine.

    Yeah, the V6 would be an upgrade in power from your 4cyl, but the 4cyl is still an awesome motor, and you lose the 4x4.

    Don't do it. Your current truck is fine.

    Dang so no one agrees...yet?!
    I might just buy it and keep my current one, for the weekends or something
    Always wanted a prerunner so I could do a spindle lift Nd eventually do long or mid travel on it
    My 4cyl is to slow for a lt kit

    Are you serious? You'd buy another truck that's pretty similar to your current one just for the weekends?

    You must have a great job and your retirement all saved up already :confused:
