I was told that the dealers aren't allowed to put in FRS (Special) Orders until week 18 of production. They are in week 15 or 16 right now, so that jives with what I've heard on this forum about April.

I dropped my hold on an allocated truck that was coming in next month. I opted to go the FRS route, because I wanted a particular configuration. Does anyone have an educated guess on how long I will be waiting for this thing?

Here's what I'll be getting in BLACK (The fastest color):

2007 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 5.7L V8 4X4 With the following Options:
FE - 50 State Emissions, CK - Cold Kit, EJ - JBL AM/FM/6 CD Changer with Bluetooth and Steering Wheel Audio Controls, BU - Cloth Bucket Seats w/8-Way Power Drivers Seat & Trip Computer, HM - Power Heated Outside Mirrors, MG - Front & Rear Mudguards, OF - TRD Off-Road Package, CF - Carpet Floor Mats with Door Sill Protectors, LU - Bedliner without Rails, SO - Front & Rear Sonar, 5K - Back-up Camera with Monitor.

IT all depends on if that configuration is normally ordered by your region.

There is a huge difference between frs change that is accepted, 4-8 weeks and a special order that is accepted 3-5 months

Thanks for the info, and the TRD config is pretty standard around here. The JBL and the Sonar would be the big changes.

My salesman said my special order would go in on April 2nd and it should be approx ~90 days or so, maybe sooner. I'm praying as well :)

The one I test drove on launch day +2 was an SR5 with the JBL stereo. I didn't like the color or I would've driven that one home.

Heya.

I'm just here reading about your trouble in custom ordering a new Tundra = (
I went to my local dealer in January inquiring about the new Tundras... they hadn't gotten in any 5.7's at the time, all they had was 2 or 3 in the lot, with the 6 and the 4.7... so I gave them my number and asked them to call me when they got a 5.7 in, I got a call about a week later, took a 5.7 DC LTD on a drive, and was impressed... so at that point he looked up on his computer to see if anything I was interested on was in the region, it wasn't , so I had him order me one... I just took delivery on it last Thursday, I'll take some pics of it this weekend and upload them.

'07 DC SR5 4WD TRD
5.7 / 6 Spd
Slate Metallic
Graphite fabric interior
JBL 6 disc changer w/ 10 spkr
Parking Sonar
Towing Mirrors
Factory bed liner w/ deck rail system


I think maybe your dealers are too lazy to get the order placed, because mine did it in a heartbeat when I dropped them a 500$ deposit....

anyways, good luck in your quest in special ordering yoiur new Tundra, it will be worth the wait. = )

Hmmm I did the same thing yesterday, gave the dealer $500 nonref deposit, and they sent me the sheet today showing me exactly what they had ordered yesterday. They told me 40-45 business days to get the truck...weird way of putting it. I got a similar truck as the one Roksh ordered, only I got NAV, bucket seats, and no bedliner. There was no Tundra with this configuration in South Carolina or the southast (nothing that had TRD AND Nav in the Southeast), so I wonder how long it will take me to have something like this made. I don't want to have to wait for too damned long....anyone have any ideas?

I dont think his dealer was lazy, he already said they placed the order for him so that cant be the case.

As you can see from the other post, it is based on what your region orders to how fast you will get your custom truck. If it just happens to be what they order anyway that you want, your order will get there twice as fast as a true special order truck. An frs is just changing a truck that was already coming in, if accepted, they already know when it is coming in, if the change is not accepted, it then goes to a special catergory and may or may not be accepted right away. Even when our system shows the special order was accepted, we still dont know right away when it will be coming in but we know it will be some day. lol

Toyota is just not set up to do mass orders. Someday that might change but that day aint today. I do have several special orders that have been accepted, several that havent as well. I have just as many frs changes that have been accepted . So far only 5 customers have actually wanted them just the way they were coming.

I dont have a choice but to do the orders, I dont have any 5.7 4x4s in stock anyway so I have no incentive to try to sell something in stock. Every one of these trucks has been sold as soon as it hits my allotment.
