Well last week I had a 2006 Limited Tundra with only 8k miles on it... I purchased a Weekend Warrior for my Motox Photography business and last weekend was my first trip in it loaded.. Trailer is 4500lbs and loaded close to 6300lbs. The truck was 3200-3500 rpms for 3 hours , wasted 175 dollars in gas to get to the event yada yada...
I went looked at a Chevy 2500HD.. I had a 2001 Chevy and it was an outstanding truck. The dealerships were not doing squat for me and was offering me like 21k for my still new limited Tundra.. I had looked at the 07 Tundras right when they came out at a big Motocross event since Toyota is the Primary sponsorship for AMA racing. I fell in love with it instanlty but the price way too much...

Ok so here I am 4 days to go before I have to get on the road again to the races, I went and checked out the Tundras again (thank god) and they had like 30 on the lot so walking around I looked at a bunch and wanted 4 wd but when I saw this one truck that was it.. I said "is that 4x4?" umm nope' thats ok I want that one.. I said make me an offer I cant refuse so I can drive her home... Im not going to mention where I got the truck because people will probably get mad saying im advertising so anyways... I went on a killer killer lease program got into a truck i thought was not possible and the truck is absolutley a dream to drive.. I cant say enough about this hog, I towed the trailer around yesterday and it towed it like it was not on the truck... Im stoked, ive had 9 toyota trucks and one Chevy since I was 16 yrs old and they all bee great to me with care and maintence but this new Tundra is down rite sweet.. Well here is a few photos, its double cab SR5 with tow pack, tow mirros,back up camera and some basic other options..Also a set of Toyo tires with 22" Momos lol I didnt even know momos were around still .

ONE THING I DONT LIKE: Why is there no foglamps on the trucks? The cut out is there but there capped off unless you have TRD package?? I dunno that is sorta cheap. I also think suck a beatiful truck should come with a bedliner like my 05' Tacoma did. Overall the thing is a beast and I am very happy especially with the lease deal I got..

I think i just found the wheels want for my beast when i get it. Any idea how much the wheels were? I would get 20's and wrap them in bigger rubber but i love clean five spoke chrome rims. I know you can get the foglights with the TRD package but i have seen limited non TRD's with foglights so i think its a limited option.

There are a number of post on how/what to add for aftermarket fogs. Also, you can get the OEM Toyota fogs and switch, and use the factory wiring (that's already in place), but it's expensive ($150 each for the fogs, $80 for the switch-a headlight stalk replacement, and about $100 for someone to pull the airbag and steering wheel to install the switch).

Great combination of wheels and color! Looks great! I ordered the 20" carved wheels for my truck when it comes in, but I may consider getting some chrome rims...I dunno :confused:

Nice quality pics. The Pyrite Mica looks great and will be my choice, also. The wheels are outrageous!

lol My neighbor is in aww over it... he said "wow these things sure came a long way".. I saw on some site that Tundras are American designed and built so maybe that explains there larger size.

The rims and tire combo was like 5k I think... I wanted a 4x4 but I got a screamin deal on this one with rims so I said screw it. The back up camera works like a charm , I usually get in and out of my truck about 15 times since I am horrible at lining the hitch up lol now I do it with 2 tries hehe... The info center is cool too shows you ave mpg and how many left you have in your tank.. Temp and clock...The y have made a very nice truck I liked my 06 alot and still do/did but this baby has so much power

Awesome, love the wheels. How far do they stick out? Could you get a straight on shot showing how much they stick out?

Great looking truck! :tu:

I got the TRD Package so I have the fog lamps. I was told by too many Toyota truck owners here in Alaska that if I got a new Tundra to make sure it had the TRD Package. Up here the TRD option is a must have.
