Meticulous Maintenance Notes & History Available – I tracked every single thing I did on the vehicle and was able to pull the previous owners Dealership records.

Sale include Various Equipment from TBD Projects, Toyota Coolant, ATF and some misc spare parts included.


• 4WD System INOP – Will not kick into 4LO without tricking the ECU with pushbuttons
• System actually works fine except the limit switches in the Transfer Case (HL1 broken)
• You can fully operate the 4WD system – if you understand the pushbutton logic
• Frame Rust – I’ve spent years working restoration and having pieces welded on and fixed. For what it was, its in great shape. But it shows signs of its age in the East Coast Winters. I wouldn’t tow 5500lbs with it but a trailer or basket with a cooler on the hitch, no problem. While above I call it in good shape, every one will have their own evaluation so please take time to review pictures.
• Tires – Tires have been absolute champions but they need replaced as they are starting to dry-rot
• Dash Crack - has the typical dash crack but it's worse than most - see pics
• Wheels –Show their age, they aren’t perfect but they aren’t pretty. For 20 year old wheels they are in good shape.
• P2445 CEL in Winter Temps below Freezing – The Secondary Air Injection Bypass is installed, never figured this out but the code clears with no issues
• No idea what CarFax reports, but I claimed 2 accidents, Side Swipe Passenger Side (replaced the door and blended paint) & a rear end at slow speeds, only some bumper scratches. Nothing major, was accident free before I purchased.

I consider this above average pricing wise as it has new suspension, headers, rust mitigation among many other non-cosmetic upgrades
Asking $12k
