    Hi.
    I'm Tor, 39 years old, located in SW Florida.
    Have had several Camrys though the years, but no trucks. Currently have a -92 and a -15 Camry.
    I still haven't got a Tundra, but I'm currently looking, and will hopefully find one to buy once I'm back from work overseas in 2 weeks. I'm trying to stay within a budget of max $20k, so looking at Gen 2. Preferably under 150k miles, but might consider one with up to 200k.
    Just can't find many 8' bed trucks available. Seems like there are a lot less of these available. Is this because their mostly commercially owned, or are there just not very many delivered?
    I've searched craigslist, autotrader and facebook. Any tips on other sites with a wider selection?
    I would prefer to find one in Florida, but might travel for the right truck at the right price.

    Appreciate all tips.

    Thanks

    I brought this home yesterday. 2008 with only 202k miles on it
    It’s got a few issues, as could be expected for the mileage and price of 9,5k out the door, including taxes and tags, but hopefully I’ll be able to resolve most without throwing the same amount in on repairs.

    I’m open for any suggestions on replacing headlights.
    I’ll do some searching on the forum, but the P.O. apparently put too bright bulbs in the turn signals and burned the sockets. Still working, but the right one has burned the plastic on the inside of the light as well.

    lol
    Plastidip that’s peeling off now. Doesn’t even look that bad underneath, so not sure yet if they were into modifying or trying to refresh.
    New wheel will be coming on though.
    Right now she’s in the shop though. Brought her in for an alignment, as she seemed to be pulling a little to the right. Turned out someone had the steering wheel off at some point and didn’t even attach it properly afterwards. Resulting in both the steering wheel and steering column needing replacement. If I would have had any idea of what that tiny play I felt in the steering wheel came from, I would never have drove as far as I did the first day...

    Anybody who has got any idea on this?
    Just pulled service record from toyota.com
    What kind of warranty work would they have done at 140k miles on a 6-7 year old truck?
    I mean the stuff that’s quoted as sublet repairs?
