    ReadyLIFT SST 3" front, 1" rear. 295/75-18 Terra Graplers,
    Bought a 2007 with 172000 miles on 5.7 4X4 6' bed in October 2014 for $15,000. It currently has 210,000 miles on it and still strong.

    Now looking to trade for 2010 with 237,000 miles on Super Charged 5.7 4X4 8' bed for $12,500. Is this a bad idea?

    Welcome from eastern CO! Me personally I'd try to stay away from any vehicle over 120k miles. But Tundras are known to run for 300k without too much issue. Post up some pics if you buy it!

    Welcome! Saw you already made the swap. What did you get for your truck? Make some money in the trade? If you had 210k miles on your 2007, the step up to a 2010 with 237k isn't that bad.

    I probably would not do that either but if it has consistent service records then it may be different but as with anything it's usually a gamble when purchasing used vehicles. Good luck with your decision. I guess I would ask if your truck has been good to you then why do you want to trade up?

    ^^^^Supercharger!!! Welcome from CO. I agree with @csuviper, not a big difference. Hopefully it was well taken care of. What you are doing is next to impossible with a big three truck. Very doable with a Tundra. :infantry::infantry::infantry::infantry:
