BaT Auction: 2002 Toyota Tacoma TRD Limited Double Cab at No Reserve

This post was originally published on this site

This 2002 Toyota Tacoma 4×4 is a modified double cab pickup that is equipped with a 3.4L DOHC V6, an automatic transmission, and the TRD package. The seller is a Mercedes-Benz master mechanic who has personally maintained and modified the truck during his six-year ownership. He is reportedly the second owner and has added approximately 75k of the 116k indicated miles. Recent maintenance included a timing belt replacement along with the installation of new tires, front brake rotors, axle shafts, sway bar links, belts, and filters. Modifications consist of a 3” lift, Bilstein shocks, a Borla muffler, transmission coolers, LED lighting, bed liner, and more as described in the listing below. This Tacoma is now being offered for sale at no reserve with a clean Carfax and a clean Colorado title in the seller’s name.

The truck is finished in Lunar Mist Metallic with matching fender flares. According to the seller, a rear end collision that occurred last year resulted in a replacement of the tailgate and left rear spring in addition to repairs of the left side of the bed, though no accidents are listed on the included Carfax report. Rock chips and small dings are reportedly present in the finish, which is pictured up close in the gallery below.
