The bad and the ugly:
While driving during snowstorm went into a ditch and rolled. Was going slow, the airbags did not deploy. Unfortunately, because the truck rolled, the cab suffered damage all around (front bumper, roof, windshield, both doors, left side window, left quarter, left side mirror, some damage to left side of the pickup bed, some scratches/dents on left fender -- a lot of body work would be required. .). The wife was in the truck at the time of the accident and said she will never ride in it again -- sell it, don't fix it.
The truck is drivable and mechanically overall is in exceptional condition. The title is clear. Up until May of ‘17, it spent all it's life in CA. Had no rust whatsoever anywhere, exceptionally clean and mechanically as perfect as a 2003 Taco can be. The engine is perfect -- not a drop of oil burned between oil changes. Since I bought the truck in May ‘17, these are the significant things I've done to it:-- lifted/upgraded suspension (Front: Total Chaos UC Arm, Fox 2.5 coilers, diff drop; Rear: Fox 2 shocks, Firestone airsprings, extended brake line)-- new tires (BFG TA KO2, less than 500 miles)-- new battery-- LineX spray-in bedliner-- rustproofed the underside and frame (inside/out)-- complete engine tuneup (replaced spark plugs, harness, PCV valve, etc.)-- replaced all fluids (transmission, differentials, t-case, brake, clutch, steering, coolant)-- replaced fuel filter-- new Toyota headlights
The truck is in CO 80487
