Nice! Bet you wished you woulda asked more if it went that quick, huh? Was it in pretty good shape?$6,500 with 185,000 miles. Ran an ad on Facebook market place and Craigslist for one day. Had over thirty people asking about it and three that said they had cash. The first one that said he had cash ended up buying it.
I measured the tail gates when down from top of gate to ground. Baja 28" & Santa Cruz 31 1/2" The seat is (guessing) 8" to 10" higher, the Baja you sat down into and the SC I just slide my butt onto the seat (I'm 5'6"). The SC is a larger vehicle all around than the Baja was, but still much smaller than Tacoma, Ranger, GM. Much smoother ride than the Baja and WOW! the tech difference is unbelievable. 15 years newer is a huge jump in engineering from Baja to SC.How does the bed height compare, SC vs Baja?
Would you want to share your 3D printer design file? Looks like a great addition to the truck.Thanks for the compliments on the Baja. It was a great little truck. Was a happy/sad day to watch it drive away, but I’m really enjoying the new Santa Cruz.
There is so much tech in the Santa Cruz that I don’t know how to use, but it will be fun figuring everything out. Thanks to all the people that post on this forum I knew more about the truck than anyone at the dealership.
Have added a couple of accessories already, first a water bottle/dish for our little dog and then an organizer tray for the console, otherwise the console compartment is just a big black hole to toss crap into.
Note to RoadsterDoc: Check Facebook Marketplace, Ebay and Craigslist for pricing info when selling Baja. The Baja’s are selling for some crazy prices!

Here's a tip. Be prepared to spend way more time than you ever dreamed it would take to get comfortable with a 3D printer. I thought it would be a piece of cake being an old IT guy and having a degree in ElectroMechanical Technologies. But... I was sadly mistaken.Now THERE'S a good excuse to finally get a 3D printer! Just have to figure out a reason my wife needs one so I can pretend that I'm doing it for her, not me....
It's about 16 hours of print time and no one is going to pay a reasonable amount for one. Hopefully someone in China will see the tray and do a knock off for $4.99. I'm retired and I don't have time to be making the trays to sell for what little I could sell them for, I'm too busy doing the fun things, like flying drones over some streams and lakes this afternoon.Should sell them on here, could prolly make a bit of profit that way.
