Advice for an aged truck

I am wondering what to do with my truck, so I am turning to you guys whom like yota trucks as much or more than I do. It is going to be hard to let this one go.
I have a 1991 yota PU ext cab 22re, new KYB shocks, stanley springs, nokia tires and new alum rims from a 2002, engine is 30,000 miles old, new timing chain kit installed. Truck has 240,000 miles and now the clutch and center bearing on the drivetrain are toast.
My question is what would you do with this car? Sell it? Fix it? Upgrade? Part it out?
Taking any offers and I can send photos. I am going to ask around but I will put up a formal classified soon.
?

fix it/up grade.

Why would you part out a perfectly good vehicle just because the clutch went out?

I've never seen one with anything other than a standard cab that didn't have the v6. Hmm.

I'd definitely fix it as long as the frame and body are in decent shape.

weird. 22re ex-cabs are pretty abundant up here. Its the 22re powered 2nd gen 4runners that are rare here.

fix that bad bird! or give it to me......

Seriously though, clutches are not that hard to do on our trucks (try a front wheel drive mx6 v6 if you don't believe me!) for a few hundred (for good oem parts) your truck will be purring right along again! and for what you might get if sold it in non-moving condition, you would just be buying someone elses problem, so just fix yours lol

Nice ad, but shouldn't it be posted in the for sale section?

I'm probably going to sound like a dumb @$$ but what center bearing are you talking about? The drive train consists of engine/tranny/t-case/front and rear diffs and there are probably quite a few bearings in there near the middle.
