Looking for a 1997-1999 Tacoma

Trying to stay under $10,000
Mileage less than 100,000mi.

Prefer to find one in Texas, but willing to go to Ca or Ny if need be.

Color: White, Red, or Tan (Sierra Biege)
Interior: Oak, sorry, I just don't like the gray/blue

Engine: V6 or I4 would be good, I have read too many good arguments for the 2.7 on this board.

Everything Else: Manual trans, Manual Hubs, Manual Windows, etc...

Also, would like buckets and console as opposed to 60/40 but I realize these are rare.

Any good ideas where to look let me know, been looking on Ebay, Trader online, and talking to dealers in Houston.

Thanks

I found mine on trucktrader.com, but it took me a year and a half to find it. The local dealers were a joke to deal with (usually about 4K over KBB, after haggling). I personally wouldn't buy a vehicle off ebay unless it was local enough that I could drive it before the auction ends.

Pretty much not what you are looking for, but I'll throw it out there. 99 V6 TRD Auto with SAW lift and 33x12.5" BFG AT/KOs. Clarion CD/MP3 player. 60/40 in oak. The truck has been used, I won't lie about it, but it is reliable as hell and the paint is treated like royalty. Some bodywork is needed (dented rear passenger side fender), but it's a truck. BTW, in Oklahoma.

Got pictures?

Sounds nice, probably out of my price range. Just lost out on a 97 SR5 in New York to a guy in Alabama, dealer in Houston told me he had people been waiting over 6 months for a 4x4. Seems people like to take them to Mexico and central america.

Dillon,

I like your rig, it just is not what I am looking for, can't we just be friends...(LOL)

Seriously, I am going to be driving quite a bit so gas mileage is important, so I am looking for a truck that has not been lifted.

Thanks though.
