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

Thanks for all the replies. I drove the FJ today, and it seemed really tight. No rust anywhere (Memphis is a good climate for that). Underneath looked really clean - must have spent it's life on the highway, as there is no rust on the suspension as a sand-blasted truck would have. Only things I noticed were:
  1. Clutch engages near the top of the pedal travel - might this be an indication of clutch wear, or is this normal?
  2. There is a whine in the drivetrain. Stops with the clutch disengaged at speed, so not the tires or parts that keep rotating. Expected, or possible issue?
