    Found one, 2008, around 100K, a limited Crewmax with all the toys. Asking 18.9K very nice truck drives great. Has a good service history, and the secondary pump was replaced.

    Only thing that scares me is this in the service history:

    Another record says they applied fluid film a few years ago...Haha..that must be long gone. I use that stuff too and it barely lasts a season.


    Being in upstate NY, I've seen vehicles turn into dust. I don't believe that opinion above will be true a year down the line, no matter what they apply to it.

    I can't find any other limiteds here, I may still go for it.

    I've found that these trucks share a trans with my Lexus GS. The GS has an all time AWD planetary TC.

    Of the vehicle
    Was original owner thinking factory rust? If it’s in NY, it’s probably true rust.

    No. Many have had the undercoating done, it was not ok & Toyota said we offered frame replacement, you took undercoating, you are on your own.

    I'd look elsewhere unless the truck is free.

    Is there a bed liner? If so lift it up and look for rust on the bed (particularly where the bed mounts to the frame) it’ll be obvious. I have the same truck and had the frame recall cover a new frame. My bed rotted out and I replaced that on my own. I’d say if it hasn’t been replaced and there’s obviously been concern over it, I’d pass
