    Whats going to save me is a 3.72% interest rate!

    Hopefully its a 5 speed, I didn't see it in the Ad but that's what I want.

    I don't kno y it isn't listed as 5 speed or automatic. U would think tht would be kind of important. Couldn't find Amy pics of the truck either

    You can see pics on the dealers web site. http://www.buyguess.com/details.cfm?searchvkid=750744

    Just so you know, since you commented on it, it is an automatic.

    Not quite sure what to think about the tow ball on the bumper... Pretty useless and not a tow package/hitch.

    Looks like spray on bed liner. Very nice.

    It is a 4x4 TRD (rear locker). They may not realize it since it doesn't have the TRD stickers. Looks like it includes most options, except for the towing package.

    Having 83k on it, its due for a timing belt really soon. I'd either make them include that in the sell, or plan on an extra $1000 to get that done. Recommended service also includes ATF and 4x4 fluids get changed at 90k. 60k were plugs, so you could be ok there (if it was maintained according to dealer recommendations).

    Besides that, I really didn't notice anything that jumps out at me as being anything to look out for. Of course the normal things like check for how bad the frame is rusted, and other used vehicle checks (brakes, suspension, steering, electrical, etc). Since you do have the VIN, you might also want to run a carfax on it as well, although 13 records doesn't seem bad at all if the state records yearly registration.

    Dealers website didn't have pictures earlier. So they must have just put them up.

    They actually do know that it has the TRD package talked to someone about it earlier form the dealer, but forgot to ask what kinda tranny it had.
