    Wanted to buy in or near Las Vegas, NV. a 2007 to 2012 Tacoma Access Cab, 4WD, V6, manual or Auto 73.5" bed...no short beds. I camp out in the back of the rig. Tow package if Automatic Transmission. I use it to tow a Skeeter ZX 225 bass boat. A Stock truck is OK. Not interested in something with a lot of off-road mods.

    I know...this is like wanting the tooth fairy to arrive with bagful's of money. :)

    So the tooth fairy has not arrived yet.

    I did visit 3 dealers and endured two presentations about why I should overpay for my next used Tacoma. They couldn't beat the APR my credit union offered. Only one dealer actually had a 6 ft bed and I encountered my first rig with TRD stickers but not a complete TRD package. The "tow Package" was a bolted on U-Haul class III tow bar and nothing else. Definitely an "out in the wild" experience when dealer shopping in Vegas.

    time for a bump. Found a low mileage 2005 4WD, TRD sport Tacoma in Kingman and made an offer. Haven't heard back so maybe seller got cold feet at the real prospect of a sale...waiting for counteroffer.
    -------------------------------
    Well the counter offer came back and they asked more than their original offer. Hmmm.....won't go there and deal fell through.

    Your truck is just about exactly what I am looking for. Unfortunately, Ill be buying one this weekend for less with 135k miles.

    OP, Thats a nice looking truck, Im in az and have looked everywhere.
    Does it have to be a trd sport? or are you wanting an OR version instead?

    Check phoenix craigslist. There are a couple TRD off roads 4x4 v6 auto for under 26k, depending on the year.

    Jake,

    I ask about the bed because I saw a 2005 Access Cab in Henderson NV with a 5 ft. bed.

    gb42,..That Tacoma from Wenatchee is nice. I climbed a lot in Wenatchee years ago and really love that place. My problem is to finance, the credit union wants the seller to bring the truck and themselves to Las Vegas to sign the paperwork. Also I am leery of smoke odor in the cab and whatever happened to the steering wheel controls.

    I don't especially need a TRD package. If auto then I need a factory tow package for towing my Skeeter ZX 225. If manual then I can install the class III hitch, oil cooler and connect the wiring harness. I'll can do a lift myself. There are couple local places we go to climb which are a little gnarly (washes and up to 10" diameter rocks with the occasional large boulder) to get to, but not rock crawler gnarly.

    Turns out my credit union is more ready to loan me more over a longer finance period for a 2007 and younger Tacoma. Underwriter hell and I don't grasp the logic but I understand.

    Thanks for the help and heads up

    Thanks Alexc for showing me. Distance is a problem cause of my financing. And miles are a bit high for me.
