My 2008 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport **SOLD**!

Recommended Posts

Thank you for all the interest, Forum members.

 

OK, new truck is about to be delivered, no room in garage for 2 trucks.  Now asking $12,500.

I purchased this truck when I bought my first Pathfinder, it is a 2008 model. Asking $13,500.

This truck was purchased in early 2009 and has been meticulously maintained by, some would say, an obsessive owner. A one owner truck, this vehicle has every service record from the day I drove it off the lot. Serviced every 5,000 miles, has used synthetic oil from day one. The truck has the tow package with transmission fluid cooler and oil cooler, recent new tires, bed liner, thick rubber pad over the liner and a locking UnderCover truck bed cover. There are custom made gray sheep skin seat covers and the leaf springs have been beefed up with an additional leaf in each spring for towing, there is a chrome exhaust tip as well.

I strongly recommend this truck for towing a boat. This truck tows my 22 foot Pathfinder Bay Boat with ease. The vehicle has deeply tinted windows, chrome running boards, a full cover (for the black vultures at Flamingo) and a very nice fake hood scoop!

As the photos show, this is a very nice looking truck.  ZAINO FOREVER!

I see it is a V6 how about 4WD ?

2-wheel drive, rear wheel drive.  I've never met a steep boat ramp I couldn't get up and we go to some really primitive ramps.  This is an access cab model.  I got it because the 4 door model has more room in the cab but they take the room from the bed leaving a short bed.  This has the long bed ( 6 ft, 3 inches ).

The jump seats are just OK for two full size people, mostly younger people, don't try to put your Mother-in-Law back there.

I just polished the head light lenses, they had fogged up some, now they look like this...

how much does it weigh with the 500 coats of Zaino on it ? 

I don't know but it looks like a million bucks.  A Forum member from down the Coast is coming up to look at it this afternoon, I want to keep it within the Forum Family if I can.

Your question reminds me of one that interests me...you know I use the boat for wildlife photography.  Lets say I start a trip to Flamingo with the 2 SD cards in the camera empty (re-formatted) and I return with 500 images on those cards...DOES THE CAMERA WEIGH MORE WHEN I RETURN OR THE SAME?

That's easy. Less cause you have used up some memory. Wait it might weigh more cause you have more data. I am not sure which weighs more.

One thing for sure...if Ron owns it....it is in better shape than it was brand new. No expenses spared....

if I were in the market for another truck, I would already be driving that one back home.

I was a competitive long distance runner a long time ago (and many pounds ago!).  I recall once during the middle of a long training run while listening to music on my iPod wondering whether it got heavier the more music I downloaded to it! :)

Funny story.  A Forum member from the other end of the state wanted to buy the truck for his college student son.  He wanted him to have a reliable vehicle.  

The off road riding, rugby playing son shows up in a dented, mud-splattered old truck, takes one look at mine, which looks and runs like it just came off the new car showroom, politely asks a few questions, then leaves.  Dad calls the next day and reports that son said that truck was, "just not his style" "too clean".  We both laughed.

The next time a Georgia 20-something comes to look at the truck, I'll throw a bucket of mud on it first:).

See above, price reduced to $12,500.  New truck is almost ready, no room in the garage for two.
