I am looking to buy a 92 fj80 with 214456 miles. It has been well keep. Everything but the motor, tranny, and transfer case have been rebuilt or replaced with all toyota parts. The guy is asking $5000.00. Do you guys think this is a fair price?
Fair price is what someone is willing to pay. You say everything but drivetrain has been replaced, but what does that include? Alternator, power steering pump/box and related arms, tie rod ends, radiator, water pump, birfields, etc.? Any modifcations to speak of (suspension, bumpers, stereo, wheels/tires, racks, etc.)? Does the owner have receipts and/or service records (depending on whether or not he maintained the rig himself/herself? I personally would be hard pressed to pay that for an unlocked, stock, 92 in fair condition, but then I haven't seen the vehicle and you don't mention where you are so the local market is hard to determine from your post. I probably over paid about 1K for my 95 though,and would do it again tomorrow if given the chance...I love it.
Rick, i paid $3k for my 91 a year and a half ago in Knoxville, i wouldnt pay much more than that in your area. I have seen quite a few come up in that area in the last 2 years. Of course it is always a personal decision. Make sure you have been through the FAQ's so you know what you are looking for, and good luck
