2007 FJ > 200,000 miles - $11.6K - should I?

I've been looking for a low cost FJ - seems like an oxymoron :-) So, I've found a 2007 FJ with MT, 4X4, A-TRAC with just over 200,000 miles for $11,600. So, I'm wondering if I'd just be buying something that's at the end of its life. I don't want to have to continually dump large quantities of cash into it to keep it alive. And I need the truck to be reliable enough to pull a MC trailer (2000 lbs total weight) on trips (500-1500 miles each way). This truck has a very good history of oil changes every 5000 miles, so it obviously seemed to be owned by someone who cared a bit. But, there are a lot of things that can go wrong. I plan to go test drive it later today. Anyone have any thoughts, like things to look/listen for, or expected longevity of a well-maintained FJ? Thanks!
