Hey so since my trucks been stolen i've been looking for something to replace it incase i don't get it back, i wanted something newer and this just showed up. So what are your opinions for a price to offer and just what do you think from the description. I emailed the guy asking for some pictures and a price he wanted so if he replies i'll post the pics.

sounds pretty good, low mileage for it's year that's for sure. I'd bite on it.

Ya i was thinking that was pretty good mileage. How long does the 3.4 usually go for mileage wise?

I believe the 3.4 is one badass motor from what I heard. I couldnt see why you couldn't  get 250,000 miles or better if you take care of it. I know they don't have problems like the 3.0 did.

 Sounds like a keeper. My uncles buddy had a 3.4 runner with over 300,000mi on the original engine!

Previously owned a T100 with 3.4, bought it used with 60k and sold it with 240K. With 240k, it still ran like a champ! You'll be very happy with that motor. It definitely has whole lot more balls than the 3. slow.

ya it's got a little bit of body damage but not to bad. the kid dropped down to 5500 real quick but he wants money for college. it needs a better front driveline, brakelines, to be lowered about 4 inches, move the axle forward about 2-3 inches. im going to look at it again tomorrow.

I hope so.
Nope none at all, it's been 4 days and if we were going to find it the best chance was within 2 days so pretty low chance now sadly

i hate thinking about my truck getting stolen!!
but years ago, my uncle had his 79 stolen out of bonney lake....they ended up finding it a couple weeks later and the people put new 35" tires and wheels, a tool box in the bed full of tools and my uncle got to keep it all!

He's lucky. Been searching and talking to some buddies and apparetly my truck was the 3rd to be stolen in the past month, all the others were built yotas.
Went and lookednat the 94 again today, met on a price and picking it up tuesday if he doesn't back out, didn't put any money down but we shook on it and he said it was ours.

ya i think it's a good deal. i'd probably have to part out or sell my truck if i get it back to compensate for the new truck, it's most likely completely gone by now though, it's been 5 days without a sign of it.
