2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 4dr CrewMax SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
I traded in a 1st generation Tundra for a 2nd gen. Tundra. I have hauled my family + car up and down the Rocky and Cascade Mountains with both trucks. As much as I liked the 4.7L, it knew the weight was there. But as I expected, the 5.7L didn't flinch or break a sweat going up the steep grades. Some owners find the engine braking annoying. However, I find that when you are hauling and going down a steep grade it allows for the driver to have control of the vehicle + whatever you're hauling. Overall, this truck has exceeded my expectations.
Power, design and the amount of room in the crewmax. On long trips, room is highly recommended.
A minute suggestion. Would like to have the option of having the blue background in the instrumentation panel just like in the Limited models.
