The only thing that scares me is the 132K miles... What do you think?

Appears to be well cared for. Fuel mileage might not be to good, but the truck may go 230,000 miles ok. I would ask more questions about it. What did he use it for?
etc

I sure wouldn't let 130k worry me on a newer truck. Just get a feel for it. Right about that time is when odd parts start to go bad...blower motors, window motors, etc.

If a Ford is half the truck everyone claims they are 130,000 miles should not be an issue. That being said, if it was a Tundra I'd jump all over it.

i would look into a 4x4 if you ever want to expand to plowing in the future. other than hat the truck looks good. just make sure you look it over real well or have a mechanic look it over

Could you please name the problems with Toyota trucks please? These are the best trucks out. They're still better than the rest an they're still using the still power train from 5 years ago while all other truck companies powertrains are brand new. Imagine what toyota could do if they came out with some new stuff.

He's talking about the throttle sticking issues created by our govt to railroad Toyota.

It's funny. A domestic truck can have the transmission fail at 75K miles regularly and it's "rugged'. But let a Toyota have some bed bounce or the brake rotors warp and it's a POS. They're not heavy duty trucks, but fine for light hauling and towing. I'd rather own one of them at 132K than a domestic. But I don't drive trucks that old, I need as much reliability as possible and at that age things just start to break down more often.

I drive a Chevy now. But I've owned four Toyota trucks over the years and they were essentially trouble free. An 02 sensor went out on one and I crawled under and popped a new one in. No big deal. And resale has been phenomenal. Very cheap to operate.

One problem is they can't work for crap... If I were using a half ton truck for the work that I do, it would snap in half...

Other than that, they are nice. :laugh:

The 04 Sierra is a good deal. But it's not 4x4. Then again some things you can't pass up. I bet he would take $6,500 for it. Just play the broken tailgate and dent well...

The first post isn't working for me. Maybe the guy sold it.

Just because Toyota's aren't made as heavy as a 3/4 or 4/4 ton pickup doesn't mean they're crap. They're designed for a purpose and if you need a heavy pickup, then a Toyota isn't for you.

I don't go call every vehicle that doesn't fit my needs a piece of crap. If there's a vehicle that doesn't fit any needs, then we can argue about crap.
