    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?

    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.
