I'm looking for your wise counsel before I make my first Tundra buy. I was wondering if there were any particular components or things I should check out of the vehicle when performing my inspections. I am specifically interested in the 2005 year range. You guys undoubtedly have a ton of advice on maintenance or important things to look for when buying, so I wanted to start this topic to see if I could get any help in that area.
My target vehicle is a 2005 Toyota Tundra Limited, which is a great beauty. This automobile REALLY matches my budget, however because it has a salvage title, I'm a little hesitant. Salvage title, according to my uncle, doesn't actually matter that much, but other friends claimed they would back out of the sale. Let me provide some information in the hopes of getting your feedback on whether or not this is a decent offer. When inspecting this vehicle, is there anything I should check in person or with a mechanic?

Since the front end has been advertised as being completely new, I'm wondering whether there is a method to view the previous automobile problems or damages. I'm in love with this model and need to buy by the end of the month because using rideshares right now is awful! For this price range, it's the one I found that is the cleanest, so please advise if you guys would pull the trigger or negotiate with the seller a little more in this case.
