I have always been a Toyota guy and have a 03 Sequoia, 01 LS430, and a 95 turbo Supra.

I had purchased a 06 5.4 XLT F150 in December 05 for our shop truck. It was nice but its time has come, I got $17,500 for a trade-in value on a 07 white 5.7 Limited DC NAV ect, sticker was $39k got it for $38k, not bad...

The F-150 felt like a toy compared to this Tundra, even parked next to it after the test drive and side by side it made the F-150 look miniscule.

My daily-d is the LS430 but I have been driving the Tundra all the time!

Meant to reply but it stood alone so very nicely!

Supra Pilot, your tradein, how many miles on the F150?, seems a lil' low to me for a 2 yr old vehicle and for 38k? guessing 2WD? If 4X4 you got a helluva deal, otherwise a good deal, congrats

A white DC LTD with NAV, that's a cool sorta working color on the outside and bang up bling on the inside. Congrats again and get some pics out. (don't baby her on break-in! Punch all six gears!) :tu:

You should have sold the Ford privatly, cruise ships are buying the frames for anchors, and paying top dollar.

As for the F-150 it had 6k miles I paid $25k out the door including the $9k off. It had a couple dings from a canopy blowing over (heli flyby) and some tail gate dings.

The Tundra is a 2 wheel drive, what is the suggested break-in procedure for the 5.7?

Nice, really nice curves on this vehicle:

The most critical break-in period for engines is the first 20 miles, got mine with 26 miles on it :cry: so ignore your manual with 1950's advise and chk this out:

Break In Secrets--How To Break In New Motorcycle and Car Engines For More Power

I've used this advise on the last 3 vehicles and it works like a charm and all my petro heads agree...
