Before I get into the CNG info, let me just tell you up front that I have added a lot of extras to this truck to make it awesome. I will be including them all for the right price, but if I have to come down in price, I will have to pull some of these extras. The extras include: Factory roof rack, Yakima roof cross bars, yakima cargo box, yakima bike racks, tonneau cover with rack and cross bars, Blue Tooth /ipod cable system for hands free phone calls or and blue tooth music, a 2-2.5 inch level/lift, nice wheels/tires, a K&N filter, Weathertech floormatts. Oh and it can run on natural gas if you want it to. In all, there is more than $10k worth of extras in this thing.. So if those extras are interesting to you, then this is a screaming deal. If not, then there are plenty of less interesting trucks listed with similar miles for around $15k..
The truck is a 2006 SR5 TRD Sport 4 door Long bed. It has 154,300ish miles on it. I purchased at 98k miles and had the CNG system added to it shortly after that. It has run perfectly for me. I have had to fix small mechanical issues here and there and I have done regular maintenance on it, but other than that no issues! But if you are looking at this truck most likely you know that about Tacomas. They really do "go forever"
So, here it is: First off, this truck is a long bed. The long beds are more rare, but much nicer. The CNG tank sits in the bed, so room wise, it is almost exactly the length of a short bed. I had the CNG system added because I drove back and forth from St George a lot and it is REALLY nice to pay $1.65 when unleaded is around $4. The CNG tank has a range of between 130-180 miles. The truck runs on CNG (natural gas) or unleaded. If you are running CNG and you empty the tank, it automatically changes to unleaded. Yes, you do loose some pulling power with CNG, but for around town you really dont notice it unless you are hitting it off the line. All it takes is a push of a button to change between the two fuels. The system was installed by a professional CNG mechanic. There is not tax credit available with this truck. For those of you that know what CNG system you are looking for, this is a "sequential" CNG system. For those of you that dont know what that means, you can google it and it will pretty much tell you that sequential is the better and more expensive of the two systems. Anyway, this is an awesome Adventure truck. There are GNC stations up and down the Wasatch Front, the I-15 corridor, Park City, on the way to Jackson Hole, Moab, and St George..
Is the truck perfect, no. But you will not be disappointed in its condition or its potential.
