Thanks for the welcome!
I had been watching for a Toyota 4x4, had almost pulled the trigger on a early 89 long bed but decided I wanted something more comfortable with a place for the granddaughter in the back, came across this one on Craigslist and once I saw and drove it had to have it. Very comfortable on the freeway, it will be my daily driver and surf check rig. Like having the hard cover so my boards are stowed securely. The interior is original and in great condition.
Came with full documentation on maintenance, window sticker and even the 97 T100 sales brochure. Hard to believe these had a $30,000 sticker twenty years ago. The tow package, hitch, alarm and CD player were added at time of purchase by the dealer.
Last time the timing belt was done was in 2004 at 53K, needs new shocks, its weeping a small amount of oil (I think from the valve covers) and most likely needs some new rotors and pads up front. The rotors are the originals. The speakers are worn out too. The auto lock/unlock is not working on the passenger door. Windows are a bit slow at the very top of the cycle.
I will get to know it more this week and see what it needs. Great forum, plenty of good info!
