    I actually had a 2010 Tundra. Bought it new and ended up selling it after about a year. Too big and build quality was not the same as the 1st gens. Found this low mileage 2006 Double Cab and still love everything about it.

    Before and more recent. Bought my 2008 in 2009, crewmax 5.7, it's big and maybe not what I should have bought but got a great deal on it.Tundra Envy-img_7440.jpgTundra Envy-img_2371.jpg
    Only action photos of it are hauling firewood or parked in a camp site. Boring stuff. Has 127k on it now and still runs like a champ. Just updated the audio with a Sony deck, woof, amp, door speakers. Thumps pretty good. No mods, just changed wheels and brakes.

    Relative to the size of the trail (or parking lot) you're trying to navigate. LOL

    They were really inexpensive, got them at America's Tire Store - great place, great service. Get what you pay for, I could have went with a premium brand paying four times as much. I think tires and wheels at the time were under $1,500.

    America's Tire is great. They'll match most reasonable prices too. Just try an time purchases with their twice a year big sales to stack discounts and keep on eye on the Discount Tire Direct eBay site for crazy deals (up to $200 of tires, no tax, and free shipping) too.

    I was debating at a tacoma before I got my tundra. Friends and I used to do a lot of trips to tahoe and when I sat in the back of the tacoma I knew I couldn't put my friends through that. Wayyyyy to cramped in that back seat.

    True, parkingís a biatch... but not an issue when shuttling Díville. And 19 mpg Diesel isnít too bad for a ďReal TruckĒ

    Apparently so do I.

    There is a new Tundra in my area that is nothing short of badass. Iíll try to get a photo next time I see it. Best one Iíve ever seen.

    Some nice rides in here.

    Yeah, it was fun as it was a very basic work truck when I bought it. Added the all black Fuel wheels, black step bars, tow mirrors, backup cam (can't live without it), stereo, fog lights, shell, etc. Cool thing was Toyota builds the truck with ALL electrical wiring installed so all the OEM adds were easy plug and play.

    Also removed all the chrome I could. But ran out of money and motivation before I figured out a decent way to replace the chrome rear bumper and front grill.

    I really like that 1st generation Tundra. It shared some character of the classic (79-81) mini truck. If I didn't want a 100 series Land Cruiser so bad, I would want an early 4wd 4 door Tundra.
