2005 Toyota Tundra 4dr Double Cab SR5 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

The best vehicle I've ever owned.
Smooth, powerful, comfortable, and above all else, RELIABLE.
Quietest cab I've ever ridden in.
I've got 114,00 miles on this 8 year-old truck, some of which have been very hard miles.
Like 2 yards of concrete in the bed kind of hard.
(I've got air springs in the back, increasing payload and improving handling).
There's not even a rattle in the cab after 8 years.
Tight as a drum.
This thing has never needed anything more than standard maintenance.
Ford, GM, and Dodge can say they have the better rig, but read the comments on those used trucks on this very website.
You won't want anything but a Tundra when you do.

**UPDATE @ 150K MILES:
Still a turnkey truck. Zero issues that weren't self-inflicted. Still exceptionally quiet. Truck is now 11 years old and no rust evident despite being in a road salt environment most of its life. Recently pulled 7000 lbs of trailer and equipment 1000 miles with it and it performed like a champ. Braking could have been better, but that's what you get with drums in the back. Only complaint at this point is the MPG could have been better with these engines. 17MPG highway at BEST isn't great for a "small" V8, particularly when Toyota's 5.7L with 100 more HP gets the same mileage. Progress, I guess.
