Deal or no deal?
So I have been trying to sell my fj cruiser trd for about half a year. I'm trying to get a good price out of it being I'm not rushed to sell it and i don't owe anything on it. It has an arb bumper, warn winch, lights, 3.5" adjustable lift and 33" bfg all terrains that are almost brand new. The mileage is 88,000 and its in pretty good condition. Few parking lot door dings and minor scratches that would probably come out with just some wax. Anyways I've had a few offers of $18500 and I thought I had it sold last weekend for 19700. I'm really looking for 20000. Ive got the itch to get a 05-07 f250 4x4 crew with leather interior with 120k or less. This weekend I had a guy offer to trade me his 05 f250 with 150k on the clock. It's exactly what I've been wanting, but I feel the milage is too high. I'm getting ready to apply to med school and it will be at least 5 years before I have any good income, ill mainly be living off student loans. I'm looking for pretty much a straight up trade or to spend very little. My main question is, would this truck last me 5 years with out having to pretty much rebuild the engine. I plan on doing the egr delete, gauges, exhaust, banjos, fuel spring, stc fittings, switching to cat elc and Sct with custom tunes. Over the past 4 years I've averaged 18000 miles a year. So I'm thinking in five years it'll have around 240k or so on it. What is everyone's input? Is it a good possibility ill be throwing a lot of money at it towards new Injectors and what not? Should I hold out and see if I can get 20000 or a little less for my fj, then find another truck with lower miles? Just looking for some advice cause I've got the itch to get a f250 real bad. I've always wanted one. Thanks in advance for your input! Oh and I do all my own mechanical work so anything id be doing to it would be only cost of parts. I also just sent my scan guage off to have the new firmware installed so I can hook it up and monitor ficm voltage and oil vs water temp so I know those will be good. This is one of my.first posts, but I've been religiously reading posts here for a while haha.
