I have a line on a mini truck, 3.0L, 5 speed, 4WD, XtraCab from a buddy. Anyone need it, work or farm truck or something? Let me know and I can get you a contact.

A 3.0 Xtracab would make a great candidate for a 3.4L swap. Easier (much) than a 22RE-3.4L swap. Depending on its condition.

Color, SR5?

OK, here's the story. The truck is not pristine, it got flopped once and so there are a few replacement sheet metal parts. The body is straight with the new pieces, but needs paint to be one color again. All the glass is just fine. He drives it daily here to work, so it's not a death trap or anything. It was originally the medium gray color and it's a 1992 (IIRC).

The 3VZ has been rebuilt once, but that's been a while ago and it's getting tired again. It is an SR5, although he replaced the driver's seat with a nice racing seat. It will come with MR2 seats if I understand correctly. It does have a center console.

He wants $2,000 for it, frame is straight, title clean, etc. It would be a fine base or basically use as-is for utility. I personally think he's about $500 high, but he's young (really a good kid, though) and is using Yotayard prices to set his. IOW, he's saying the rear axle is worth $250, prop shaft is $100, basic frame and body is $1,000, etc. and all that adds up to $2,000.

Bad pricing strategy. Yeah, he will get that if he goes to all the trouble to pull everything. And can find enough people willing to pay YotaYard prices... :lmao:

Yup, that's what I tried to hint at, it's not a relatively rare 1st gen or anything.

'Bout the same here. I looked at it and though $1500, but I like nice round numbers.
