    Looking at this truck tomorrow. What do you guys/gals think? I want to put coilovers on to level it but I saw that the cv boots fail and I don't want to deal with that(when I was younger had to do that a bunch of times on a ford)

    Any info to help me decide if I should buy it would be helpful.

    I am fighting myself not to buy a left over quicksand SR5

    It sounded like a well maintained truck. It has low miles and no rust. I would buy it.

    2017. I figured I could put the 18 headlights in it and be good to go.

    Dang, that looks nice! If I didn't need a bigger back seat and saw something like that when I was looking I'd be all over it.

    It looks like what I need but I do like leveling all my trucks and it seems that its kind of 50 50 if the cv boots will leak. The other trucks I am looking at are 5.8 liter mid 90's gas F150 or F250s

    No kidding. I paid $15,000 Canadian pesos for my 2005 double cab TRD off road with 128,000KMS (79,500 miles) a little under 2 years ago.

    Currently has 160,000KMS and if I were to lose my mind and sell it I wouldn't accept a penny under $13K

    You must be a big dude to feel cramped in an AC. I don't feel cramped in my RC and I'm not a 'petite'. :cheers:

    Sweet. Love these stories of Tundras holding value. Heard a Yankee say they can’t find any of the older Tundras up there due to that rusting issue. He said one could get top dollar up north compared to down south.
