Trade offer fell through, unfortunately- His wife wouldn't let it happen...
Have 2 other trade + cash offers, but really want straight cash...need this gone, now it's only 4700!!!!!


The truck sits on 35's, with a 6" Rough Country suspension lift and a 3" body lift. It handles well for it's size.
It is very clean overall and the legendary 22re has just recently been refreshed.

I considered taking the body lift off and putting 33" tires on it to give it more "mass appeal" for a quick sale...
But it gets so many compliments with the current setup that I decided to try to sell it as is before doing that. But it can be done.

I started with a running, lower mileage motor (for a Toyota, under 150k I was told).
But we decided to pull it apart and replace whatever it needed before putting it in.

(I have receipts for most of the parts).
-The block was repainted.
-Every gasket in the motor was replaced. From the valve cover gaskets down to the head gasket, and even the oil pan.
-New head bolts (of course)
-Timing Chain kit with new steel rail
-Head resurfaced at machine shop
-New Oil Pump
-New Water Pump
-New clutch kit- disc, pressure plate, throwout bearing, flywheel resurfaced and
-New clutch slave cylinder.
-New fuel pump
-New plugs
-Upper ball joints on driver and passenger side
-Outer tie rod ends on both sides
-Newer alternator
-Newer radiator

-The paint was redone in it's original color in the winter of 2012 and any rust on the body or frame was removed (there are a few spots bubbling now).
(The 4th picture is what it looks like after a wax/detail).
-The frame was rhino lined at that time as well and is still in great shape.
-New fuel and brake lines were run.
-The valve cover is a custom painted chameleon deep red color and looks great.
-It has an aftermarket header
-Offroad lights (that work!)
-Roll bar
-Fender flares
-A Rough Country 6" Suspension Lift.
-3" body lift spacers.
-4 piston brake caliper kit (nice with the bigger tires).
-Ball joint spacer lift kit.

I have some performance parts that can be negotiated into the deal as well.

What does it need? Not much really, no need to hold your breath, I'm not about to tell you it needs a transmission or anything extreme like that.

-The tires are drying out. I still drive it on the road, but they would be better preserved in the mud. The tread is around a 50% average.
Again, if you wanted to put smaller tires on, and remove the body lift, that is another way to make it look just as good.

-There is some rust on the passenger floorboard.
I've gotten quotes to redo the entire area (unnecessary) in the $350 range,
but decided I'd see who was interested before I put more $ into it.

-The muffler needs to be replaced as well as a small section of the pipe between the catalytic converter leading to it.

If you have any questions about the truck, pm me and/or I will give you my cell #.

Price was $6500. Now $6200. Especially with the recent motor work and all, this is a great deal. I am losing out big time though.















Here are some frame pics. The red is overspray from when the truck was redone. It's peeling off the frame because they didn't primer over the rhino liner (of course).

Bump. Price is slightly negotiable, even though I'm losing a lot on it.

May be open to vehicle trades of same value (car/bike) as well.

$6400. Considering trades.

Maybe I should take the body lift off and put on 33's, so it's more obvious that it would be a good daily driver...

I dont want to be a jerk on your sale thread, but you do seem confused about no offers so far.

You are asking about 3 times the book value for this. It looks cleaner than most but that seems pretty high.

You should also get a bunch of detailed close ups of the frame, particularly at the front leaf spring mounts. Toyota guys need to see the frame-A LOT.

Hey, I appreciate the response. Not confused really...The problem is, I'm realizing the market for this is a little further south, se & sw.

I looked for 6 months before I found anything this nice for under $5k originally. As far as front leaf springs, toyota went to IFS after '85, so there aren't any front spring mounts to rot...good point though, I will have to grab some frame pics.

So I guess this is as good of a place as any to stand behind the price...

For one thing, late 80's-early 90's Toyota pickups don't go by the kbb at all. They go for way more. Ironically enough, the one's that are rusted out, need a motor rebuilt or put back in, have a ton of miles, etc are the ones that go for about the kbb

Problem is, I'm realizing the market for this is a little further south, se & sw. I looked for 6 months before I found anything this nice for under $5k originally.

You can check eBay to see what they go for in different condition (stock, lifted, low/high mile, etc) or do a craigslist search and see that way. If you find a really nice one with low miles and it's super cheap, email them. from experience, I'd bet it's a scam...

A few things that cause the price to be lower:
-No bed/wooden bed/rotted bed
-200k+ miles with tons of rust
-250k+ miles, clean body, tired motor
-Salvage title
-Not running :poke:
-Non Toyota drivetrain

Here's a couple examples of trucks going for about (or under) the kbb. There are lots more, but for the sake of time, and many listings without pics, here's a few:

Same year, 240k miles, body is more beat up, does have top and x-cab, $2700
http://columbus.craigslist.org/cto/5086847736.html

Same year, 270k miles, no top, $2500.
http://dayton.craigslist.org/cto/5055249740.html

92, needs trans, 180k on this motor isn't a ton, but it is closer to needing a rebuild than not. $2400
http://zanesville.craigslist.org/cto/5078149140.html

94, looks nice, but doesn't run. $1500.
http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/cto/5098557066.html

94, bad frame, $1500.
http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/cto/5083595112.html

92, needs trans, $2700.

A few similar to my price...

95, clean, looks nice, doesn't have all the extras but definitely looks good:
http://toledo.craigslist.org/cto/5081869590.html

Same year as mine, I think the price is high even though it's the SR5 model with all the power accessories. Clean though. 236k, new timing belt, same v6 that eats head gaskets, $8k.
http://columbus.craigslist.org/cto/5100763135.html

92, really clean, has an x-cab, but it's a v6, looks nice though. Closest I can find to mine. Mine is better in some ways imo, his in others. $6k
http://southbend.craigslist.org/cto/5085711576.html



With this post, I am also lowering to $6200.

Price down, see top of original post.

I meant the front mount of the rear leaf springs looking from the inside. Right at the gas tank. GLWS
Saw this, forgot to respond. Looked over this area, it's solid. Didn't grab pics but it's in good shape.
