Well actually got it yesterday. Clean, one owner, 4WD,2008, 90,000 miles, had sat on a lot in Somerset for nearly 3 months, wasn't snazzy enough for most folks, white. I was up there on some business yesterday, went by for a drive and ride. I gave him a lowball offer, said that was what I could do, and left him my number. He stated he could not do that, I said that it could sit there another 2-3 months then. I got down the road about 4 miles and he called me, said it was mine! I have a 2000 Tundra that has 265,000 miles on it, and drives as good as the day I got it 15 years ago. Only had to do 100,000 mile up keep, and tune ups, brakes, and replaced 4 of the 8 coils that are on each individual cylinder. This truck should do me the rest of my life, no more miles than what I put on one each year!

Nice acquisition....

My neighbor just got a nice 2005 Seqouia and was wondering about the second rocker switch in from the left on the dash at belt line,I think it’s traction lock.Perhaps you Toyota guys might know.Good luck on a well made truck Sam.

Looks good!
I got a sweet deal from a dealer with my last truck. End of the month and the salesman was being promoted to a sister dealership starting in 3 days.... He just wanted the best commission check he could get before he left. Trade-in was well above book value, and new truck well below.

Tundras

I had a 2012, that was a rock solid truck...The only issue I had with it, was the dealer kept whining about a slight leak at the water pump, so I told them to fix it. It was around 65k miles, so they thought I was paying the bill. When they found out it was on Toyota's dime, because of a extended warranty, they were less enthusiastic about fixing it...But they did. Not another issue with it until I traded it at 95K. It was clean, and I got a better than average trade-in. It was a 4.6L V8, that they said some old farts liked for better fuel economy. I never saw that, but pulling my tractor, and other gear, on my flatbed, to my hunting property, was expensive. The little V-8 drank fuel pulling that load. So when a 2018, with the 5.7L, and a 40 gal. tank, was being advertised at a dealership 75 miles away, I took a drive. I LOVE my 2018 Tundra. Just enough tech on it to make long trip driving less stressful(it has been from WI to TX and to WY already), plenty powerful for the heavy loads, and the larger fuel tank is appreciated, on long trips, or towing on medium trips. I think I will have them bury me in this one.

I'd hate to be driving 1 of those here on some of the tracks as they're too big and too wide and you'd get hung up real quick on some of the mountain tracks and as for doing the Cape they'd be comfortable but a handful being so big,heavy and wide.

These are starting to show up in Australia along with the Dodge RAMS,Chevs and F trucks and while they're a great tow wagon for caravans and mobile home type stuff and work vehicle in a lot places off road they'd sink quicker than a politician's promise and it's hard enough getting a 2- 3 tonne Landcruiser or Nissan 4wd out of a bog little less 1 of these.
