    Default JBtoy's Tundra

    Hello, I'm new here and not sure where to post this question. This forum seems the most active and relevant.

    So I've recently discovered a very nice 2000 tundra for sale by a woman who is poster JBtoy's daughter. He's pretty popular poster on pretty much every tundra forum I can find. He has passed away and his daughter is looking to sell his truck on to someone that will take care of it like her dad did.

    Here is the best link I can find to detail his truck http://tundrageeks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6417

    I own a 2000 tundra myself sr5, no where near in as good a shape but a very solid truck I love to death. My plan with this truck would be to drive it moderately to enjoy the mods and maybe provide a baseline for my own truck but keep it as clean as JB has. I'm posting to simply ask what everyone here thinks this truck is worth and would be willing to pay for it. Because it's a unusual truck that is almost too nice to drive I'm not sure how to gauge the value of it.

    Appreciate any input.

    John was an active moderator on this forum. So sorry to hear he passed. His truck was probably the cleanest 1st gen Tundra anywhere. A clean 2000 Supercharged Tundra is probably worth about 10k. John's truck is probably worth a premium to that because of all the mods and the exceptional condition. Good luck with it if you are lucky enough to purchase it. Let us know how you make out.

    Oh no very sad to hear for sure.

    His truck was the cleanest Tundra inside and out I’ve ever seen. He was very picky about EVERYTHING! From what I recall his last major modification always the super charger.

    RIP JB.

    He passed from a sudden heart attack.

    Just to put it all out there. She wanted 20k for it, were at 16k.

    From what I can tell I think the S/C is the last mod he did too. She's gathering all his paper work for sale.

    I think 16 is a fair price for that truck. Good luck with it.

    I had $17k in mind but 16 sounds great.

    Guess it's a real tough truck to judge. Feels fair and truck has a lot of sentimental value to her. Just fear I might decided it's too nice to drive and down the road I can't move it without a loss.

    I've seen the truck in person but haven't driven it yet(met her through CL add for John's spare parts) but i might like it so much I decide to continue the man's build. Get the IPT valve body in, do the VLED and the 18" wheels.

    Ultimately it's my call, just wanted to reach out and try to put a frame on this thing. I appreciate the input on this everyone.

    Maybe continue your research and have a professional appraisal done on it. I’m sure there’s a car geek out there willing to pay a premium for it. Maybe $25k

    I feel this is as good a place as any for appraisal. No one knows these trucks like guys on the forum. Was thinking 25 would be the top end too. Maybe on somewhere like bringatrailer. If they'd even list it.
