Here's my new baby. Got it about a month ago after waiting a year on the new Tundra. First truck, second Toyota. I had a 2WD 4Runner that was like having racing slicks on in the snow. We took the Tundra camping in the mountains last weekend and stopped for a second in some mud in 2WD and the back wheels started spinning. My wife flips it in 4WD and it doesn't even blink. She goes, "This is no 2WD 4Runner baby!"

I love the truck. Sometimes I wish I would have got the 5.7 instead of the 4.7, although this is perfectly fine for my needs. I got to drive the 5.7 when I took this back in to get the Resist-All coating on and upon pulling out of the dealership I gassed it and threw me and my friend back in our seats. This is more than enough for me at this time. Next time...

Favorite features: de-icing windshield wipers, assisted tailgate, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, large center console, the 2 yellow lights that come on for the cup holders when the lights are on, the door handles, dual climate control, 2 large glove boxes, auxiliary connection for my iPod, the large brakes, etc. Too much to name. I think Toyota really paid attention to the little details on this one. I guess I'm in the minority, but I like the styling of the interior. And I love the room. I'm 6'5" and I fit in the front just fine. Plenty of room.

The only thing I really wish it had standard is the sliding rear window. And maybe fog lights.

The only 3 things I'm planning on adding for it are a bed mat, tinted windows, and eventually some running boards. I've only seen one Tundra with running boards and it really makes it look sharp.

I love my new truck. Years from now when I have to trade this in there won't be any doubt as to what I'll be buying next. After seeing a jacked up fairly modern Ford truck sitting in the middle lane of the road with it's emergency lights on get pushed across a busy street by 4 guys because it had died, I knew I made the right decision. Not that there was any question, but watching that sure made the sticker shock a little easier to justify.

Go to the Romik web site to see some really sharp tube type running boards. They are out for the 2007 Tundra.

Nice truck, I like the pics with the dirt on it better. That is what it is for.......using.

I hope these pics attach. I have had my truck for week today. Went to Kansas turkey hunting 2 days in the snow, 1 day in Oklahoma in the snow, went to get this 4500 lb trailer for this year's deer cabin and got the running boards and the LineX spayed in. You think maybe I have been waiting on the Tundra to show up. First couple of tanks of gas 16.5 mpg all hwy miles.

Well........I wish you would have chose black because we all know black is faster (LOL). No, seriously that is one beautiful truck. The slate metallic is awesome and I am so jealous of you living in Montana. Ever since I saw "A River Runs Through It", I have wanted to come there for fly-fishing and hunting. Your pics could be post-cards easily...congrats!!!

Yeah we were camping and I didn't have any where else to put it. I also hadn't found these forums until recently...didn't know I'd be showing it off like this. It is kind of goofy...I thought the same thing.

Montana is easily the most laid-back, beautiful place I've ever lived. I love it here.

I love the slate, but they didn't have black at my dealership. If I could have factory ordered it, I probably would have went with either the black or silver.
