Thoughts on 07 TRDSE 6MT with 51k miles

Hey Guys,

Figured I'd come ask your thoughts on this. I'm looking at an 07 TRDSE 6MT with 51k miles and no mods and it's only a few hours from me. It's a pretty slick looking FJ, but I'd probably do some black out mods on the bumpers and grill on top of the sale price.

This dealership is asking $20,588 and is only willing to come down to $20k at this time. They said if it doesn't sell in a few weeks, they might consider other offers.

Do you think $20k is a decent price on this? Even with the miles, I can't shake the feeling that $20k is a lot for an 07.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

PS - I've checked the blue book, and it hovers around $17,600 for a fair deal on this, but maybe the rarity factor comes into play here.

Re: Thoughts on 07 TRDSE 6MT with 51k miles

Seems like a great truck but the price is too high IMO. Maybe on a private sale with some special upgrades. It does have low miles but that doesnít justify the price for the year. I looked at a 07 TRD SE w/ 20K more miles on it for 17K. And that was a few years ago. They are holding their value but not to that extent.
You could find a 2010 or newer for roughly that price point. Check the classified section on this forum for an example. Lots of nice rigs posted to give you an idea of whatís available.

Thanks for the input!! I agree and think I'll wait it out to see if they'll budge on price in a couple weeks. I'm in no hurry to buy.

And yeah I've been eyeballing (and drooling) at the for sale section a lot lately. I was originally looking at 2010+ TT only, but I'm reevaluating and checking out some other ones.

And then there's this insanity. More miles than the other one I was looking at too:

IMO - The first one is worth the cash. 6MT in the TRD are hard to find, low mileage, I want to say that FJ new was probably close to $30K new.

After Monday and Tuesday even the calender says WTF

Yeah that '07 TRDSE is a rare one with those specs, they'll probably sell it close to that once they find someone seriously wanting it. Depends if that's the FJ you've been looking for or if you could settle for something 5k cheaper.

Re: Thoughts on 07 TRDSE 6MT with 51k miles

Well, I'm one prepurchase inspection away from a 2010 TT 6MT with 84k miles for $22k. We'll see how it goes!

I'll check out your 07 in the for sale section though if this falls through.
