    So really have liked the 1st gen for years. Thinking about picking one I found up if the deal works out. 2005 sr5 double cab. 120k miles. Leveled, new wheels and tires, canopy...super clean inside and out. All maintenance records. 2 owners...one currently has had since 20k. Always garaged. But it’s 17k...go for it or no? Appreciate the opinions.

    Rust shouldn’t be an issue then. I would check the maintenance records for the timing belt replacement(sticker on intake/engine cover), coolant flush and that there’s no play in the ball joints. Is it 4x4?

    Coolant flush at 100k. Timing belt and water pump recently done. Ball joints seemed fine as well. It is 4x4.

    Let is know how it goes. Loving this resale retention. Might be able to get back half what I paid for my 2002 Tundra 17 years ago and roll it into a new one. Yes!

    Sounds like a good find but $17k is a little much, imo. If it were a limited, maybe.

    A pic would be nice. Somewhat high but then again it seems to have been taken of. The new rims/tires and canopy can add to the value depending on what they are.. IMO

    New leer canopy...new Toyo mts...not sure on brand of wheels but fresh powder coat. Thought about looking for a limited but honestly wanted cloth seats. Heated seats and sunroof aren’t a big deal...have that on my ‘16 lol. But what do you all think would be more of a fair price?

    Thats your call bud. That looks like an access cab in the pic? 120k miles is low. Blown away on these resales prices. Let us know how it works out. I would not go more than 10k, but thats my area pricing. Maybe pay a premium on the mint condition? And if ALL the maintenance is up to date.

    If its a double cab they are wanting 15k around here. No way I’d buy it. Rather get two access cabs for the same price. People are paying the high prices though.

    I was replying to an old post, he may or may not have bought the truck he was looking at...but yeah, resale prices are high in my area, but the truck was mint and all services records...deal done

    I picked up my basketcase 02 for the price of free! Granted, if I tried to sell it I MIGHT get $2500 for it.
