New 2010 CrewMax, All Mine...............(in my best Dr. Evil voice)

Traded in my 07 Crewmax Limited for 10 Crewmax SR5 loaded up.

Decided to drop down to an SR5 as it was not important to go with leather (will miss the power fold mirrors).

Pyrite Mica, grey int. 5.7L TRD, pwr seats, bedliner, bed step(not a huge fan and might sell it), stainless step rails, upgraded radio, cold kit, carpet mats with sill protectors (might sell the carpet mats and buy weathertech's), and few other goodies.

MSRP was $39960 and I purchased it out the door for $33K. Not to bad.

I shopped the Ford F150, F250/F350 diesel and the Chevy. We kept coming back to the tundra for the fact it drives great, tows great and gets pretty good milage (if you don't exericise you right foot to much). The Fords just didn't do for me, Had a 2001 Supercrew and the same things I didn't care for seem to have stayed. The superduty diesel's are bad ass, but we didn't need to spend that amount of money on a truck. It would be over kill towing our travel trailer and harsh ride on my commute (65miles each way). Didn't care for the Chevy at all.

We are happy and staying a Tundra owner.................:first::):)

Congrats, rare to see someone buy their vehicles with cash as it should be. I assume when you say all yours that's what you did.

Pet peeve of mine when for example, people say they are homeowners then the truth comes out, they are glorified renters staring at 30 years worth of payments.

Anywho enjoy the truck.

This is a dumb post. 99.9% of people probably pay a mortgage vs paying cash. I guess my wife and I are "glorified renters" and proud of it!

your pet peeve is when others use mortgages to buy houses? Get a life.

Sorry bro but thats a steaming pile of bull****. Huge difference between being a homeowner vs a renter. Starting with TAXES and equity. Unless you were born into money or live in someones shed there is no way you could have paid cash for a house.

I guess I'm a "Glorified Renter" living in my 4th house at the age of 30 of which I was able to put 100k down on... name a renter that was able to do that? Equity, equity, equity.... actually the word of the day these days in this market is negative equity, but thank God I bought when the market bottomed in my area... or so I hope... lol

Your credit score must be very low since you (ideally) pay cash for everything. Well, I guess that is a lifestyle choice, and I do accept your choice as a viable one. When you disrespect others' choice (e.g., 'glorified renters'), they you will get unfriendly responses, not due to your life style, but due to your intolerance of others.

But if you pay cash for a house, which is probably $100,000 at minimum, you had to live somewhere while you were making the cash, right...? If you didn't rent then I'm assuming you lived with a friend, or with your parents - that's more like freeloading (worse than renting, IMO). So, I'm not sure I understand your logic? :confused:

I think you're probably actually aware that mortgaging a home and renting are still very different. A mortgagee is legally and financially tied to the property, and investing in it. A renter is only bound by a loose contract, and usually for a short period of time. Not really the same thing at all.

Yes, paying cash most of the time is preferable. However, at least a home is (in most cases, but not in the past few years as much) an appreciating asset. I'd relax a bit and not let other people's financial affairs get to you too much. Aside from the past couple of years, mortgages have worked pretty well for people that pay their debts :tu:
