What a great truck!

2000 Toyota Tundra SR5 V8 4dr Extended Cab SB
Bought in 2004. 68,000 mi.
Now 160,000 mi. Contemplated trading for '07 Tundra, but couldn't. Love it too much, plus its paid for. Drives like a Camry. Comfortable. Quite too. Only had to replace radiator and valve cover gaskets. No other issues. Only gripe is the front brake rotors warping every year. I can switch out the front rotors in 30 minutes I've done it so often. Interior has held up very well. Known to have transmission issues with OD gear.
I never tow heavy loads like my 30' RV in OD, but I tow a 12' cargo trailer full of tools and sometimes cabinets all the time in OD. No issues so far. Needs paint job, but that's my fault. Never once washed or waxed it.
Quite and comfortable ride. Plenty of cup holders. Adequate power to tow 30' RV trailer. Can't even tell I'm towing my 12' cargo trailer. Cockpit layout is nice.
Do the brake upgrade procedure and add some extra tie down points in the bed.
