So, the average unserviced, ignored and abused 80 series tranny probably goes about 150k miles. The problem with the one you are looking at, is that the rest of the truck has likely been treated the same way.
If this this one has a new Toyota tranny, you are $3000 ahead. If it has a rebuilt tranny, by and unknown rebuilder, I'd probably pass, since you won't get a warranty.
