View Full Version : 100 series, who wants one.

09-11-2007, 11:32 AM
I looked at a 1999 100 series over the weekend. I have not decided if we will get it yet but is there much demand on this board for 1998-1999 cruisers?

I say 98-99 just to keep the price down. Anything newer than that is a little pricey for my normal customers (this is even pushing it).

Anyway just want an idea of the interest here.

FYI, the one I looked at had 90K, gold, rear locker, average condition. Probably sell for around $18,500. If your interested PM me ASAP, I could probably catch it before it goes to auction. Book:

I've been looking and that sounds a little high. I've been looking at 2000s and 2001s and they are selling for between 19-21k with about 90k on them. The 98s and 99s I've been looking at have been in the 13-17k range. Granted Idaho is a little different than Colorado but I haven't been looking exclusively in Colorado.

according to my national auction reports they are a little less expensive in your region Eric than here in Colorado. Also more abundant.

I'm always looking for deals to offer to the Cruiser community. This particular truck I would have to "step Up" to get as we would say in the business. Not that it would be a bad deal according to the book. Keep in mind I'd also have the 90K service done along with any other repairs that would be necessary.

But is it a steal, probably not. If it was I'd just buy it anyway.

I'm mainly trying to get a feel for the demand here for 100's. Or should I just stick to 80's?

I think 80s are in the sweet spot in terms of price/value. The 100 series is awesome, but still a little pricey for many of us. IMHO, YMMV, etc.

There's a 2000 uzj100 in the Vail Daily today. $14K 115 on the clock. No idea who or what kind of shape, mearly sharing what I saw. You know you want to join the 100 club. All the cool people are doing it. OK maybe only Lexusben and Me. Who knows more about Toyotas than Ben. Me I just wanted something nicer than a '78 fj-40.

I'll admit I've been looking out of my region. CA, NM, TX, and AZ, any place I have Cruiser contacts and that I could make it home in a weekend drive. And TX is really pushing it but I have a lot of Cruiser friends down there. We actually have a 98 for sale right here in the tiny little town of Mountain Home. That is the first wagon I can ever remember being for sale here. Ocassionally a rotten 40 (parts rig) trades hands but otherwise folks don't sell them locally. I've been kicking myself this week. I bid on a 01 Green with 43k on it in CA. It sold for $20600. But until the 80 sells I'm not in a position to spend that much.
