    Ok, I've gotten bugged enough on other boards that it's time I put together a list of mods and details about the truck ;) However, work calls right now and I will have to postpone the details for later.

    As far as $$$ goes. I have not researched enough to figure out going rate....hence trying the trade. If I can lock down a number then I will post it for sure. Otherwise feel free to email me if you have an idea.

    You can check out tons of pics of my rig as well as others at kumar.criuzer.net. The latest pics of my truck have the tundra rims on it with 37" trxus tires (don't get confused with my other pics of trxus 35" tires on stock chrome rims).

    I have an old carfax and such for when I bought the truck about 5 or so years ago. Trying to dig it up. Will make a web page with all the info on the truck as soon as I get a chance. Carfax was clean when I bought the truck (originally California truck, sold at a high line auction in Utah...I bought it at 163k miles. I do have the original Lexus service history somewhere too...it was continually serviced past 100k miles by Lexus...hence I bought it with so many miles. It has about 201k now...which puts it at about 7.6k miles per year...which is mostly long runs to Colorado and other wheeling destinations....as I travel for a living and rarely drive the truck as it sits now.

    later,

    if I needed a rig, I'd be more than willing to...and most likely very happy with spending $15k on that rig.


    good luck on the sale.

    :cheers:

    Thanks! I was hoping that price would be a good sell point. I've even gotten a few emails on the side saying I could probably ask for more. But what I want is for the rig to go to a fellow member if possible that will enjoy it. It's never let me down. I'll probably give it a few weeks on a couple of forums before ebay see's it.

    later!

    I'm sorry, no. I've been traveling all afternoon....once work gets me a long enough break, I promise to provide details...interior pics will have to wait until I get back home. There should be few interior pics on my website of my storage solution. Otherwise the interior is in AWESOME shape...ask anyone here. I've had wet okole (two tone) seat covers on for about 3 years now. before I put them on I cleaned the leather with a rotary buffer and Zaino products...leather should be awesome still.

    ...work calling..will ping later.
