Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but I will explain all the details about the truck and the transaction.
The truck is already at our Military Logistic Department in Fort Lewis, Washington Army base, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the truck to your home. The shipping is free for you. Since the truck is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because it is in their custody. Shipping will take 3-4 business days to the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the truck.
For the payment I would like to use ebay as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the truck and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep it. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the truck before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 10 days to inspect it. If you decide not to keep it ebay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. But I assure you won\'t be the case. I think this is more than fair for both of us.

I\'ll start the official procedure, and ebay will contact you about this you\'ll receive important guidelines + instructions from them. You ll be contacted by ebay in the next 4 hours. So just e-mail me and tell me if you received the payment invoice and how long will take till you proceed with the payment as ebay instructed you.

PLEASE NOTE!
If the truck is not how I\'ve described it, you have the unequivocal right to refuse acceptance of the truck (return postage on my expense) and you are entitled to a full and complete refund of the truck\'s purchase price. It will be insured during transportation and will be delivered in front of your door.

Hope to do business with you soon!

Hello,

This 2004 Toyota Tacoma TRD Lifted 4x4 runs and drives excellent. It has been extremely well maintained with a full service history, 70.000 miles! The transmission is 5-Speed Manual, shifts smoothly and the 4x4 operates perfectly. The truck has all of its original floor mats, all books, complete set of tools and keys. Everything works in the truck lights, gauges, radio, seats, windows, locks, a/c blows ice cold, etc... clear title free of liens. I bought it when i was serving in Fort Lewis, U.S. Army base in Washington. The truck will be delivered for free from WA, US.
I have dropped my price to $2,400 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before February 17th, when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.
If you\'re interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your: Full Name and Shipping address, to open a case with ebay. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the truck. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.

Hope to hear from you soon!
