    Richmond, VA – local pickup (or you organize shipping)

    Hit a deer a few months back which all but destroyed the 2001 front end I put on there. I used the truck primarily to take my dirt bike and motorcycle up and down the east coast. I don't do that stuff anymore. I did most of the work on the truck since owning it, but I just don't have the time or patience to deal with this one. Owned it since 2010 and got it from the original owner w/ 140k in New York where it was his wifes truck. I'm told they sometimes pulled a small open trailer for runs to the dump. I also just put brand new (less than 1000 miles) Toyo tires (~$800, have receipt) and had the frame serviced / protected at Winchester(orioffroadsupplies.com) along with new rear Bilstein shocks and leaf springs (~$2300, have receipt). I'd say everything is solid except the front suspension, which are the original Bilsteins. They felt bouncy and I was going to replace them myself before hitting the deer. Otherwise the motor has 0 issues, as *did* everything else. Maintenance was religiously kept up with. New axle seals, rotors, brake pads, catback exhaust, ALL fluids... all done in less than 1k miles. The Check Engine Light is on because of the commonly known emissions canister issue. The ABS light is new, that started after the deer. Feel free to bring a code reader (I'm not sure what codes are being thrown since hitting the deer). Feel free to bring a compression tester as well. A rough list of parts needed will include a core radiator support, radiator, cooling fan, hood, grill and all the front end cosmetic pieces. I'm sure some cutting and welding will be needed. The radiator is actually jammed into the cooling fan on the front of the motor, which is causing the motor to spudder. I therefore do not start it up. If you want to see it run, then it really just needs to be that last consideration. Including pictures of before and after. Comes with the alloy rims etc. I just need to get back what I recently put into it, so $3000. She has the potential to be a beautiful truck again. Sold as is.

    Here in farm land farmers would be all over this. It wouldnt take much to make it drive able and it's cheaper than a side by side / ATV.. Good luck OP I hope you get it sold soon....

    That’s a fair price for sure. It’d be a fairly easy fix. If I had an empty garage bay to put it in I’d be all over it..... good luck. I’m sure it’ll sell quickly.

    Does this fall under the frame recall?

    No it doesn't. I can't remember why... but I tried calling around. Both the yota dealer and corporate said negative. Which is why I had dish out the ~2k out of pocket to have it cleaned up. It was showing some worrisome rust, so they fixed it up. This was like 4-5 months ago, too.

    Thanks folks.

    Bump. Also, new catback exhaust. Probably 2-3k on it?
