I'm new to this site, not to forums ..>
I have a taco with over 333,500 miles so far, and I joined here to see how much different the tundra is as to the taco.. :wink2:
I have a Home-Pro snow plow, I tow a 2Horse BP steal trailer and a two axle trailer ( for mulch/dirt etc. )...
I'll spend some time and do some reading ..>
Just stopping in to say Hi to the forum members. I just acquired a positively mint 2009 SR5 and I really like it. There are some things that I'm wanting to update so I'll be spending a lot of time wearing out the search function:
1. Auto head lights - already found a DIY thread on this.
2. Install a different Factory head unit so I can use a backup camera and get internet radio if possible. Still looking for threads on how to do this.
3. Try to program the headlights to come on when I unlock the doors with the FOB like my F150.. Is this even possible?
Visited the site many times, but never registered.
Greetings from Los Angeles, CA.
I drive a 2003 Tundra Long Bed. Great for plywood and full sheets of Drywall.
The only powered thing I have is power steering. Windows and locks are manual; and I don't mind because my AC and stereo still work!
It's only a V6, 3.1L engine, 6 speed manual transmission. It's a work truck and I've owned it since 2006.
Currently working on adding a new stereo; Jensen 6.2" Double Din Stereo and convert one of the cigarette lighters into USB charging plugs.
Joined TundraSolutions after finding the most comprehensive conversations regarding the frame rot issues (kudos to those who got drug through the trenches and staying (mostly) sane.) Can't believe how well my 2007 TRD crewmax handles a full truck bed or 5 adults. It's been awhile, but after a 1968 and 1969 Ford F series, things have changed
Howdy. New member signing in. I just purchased my first Toyota, it's a Tundra SR5 6 Cylinder extended cab. I has 192,000 miles on it, but from what everyone tells me, that's just getting started for this kind of truck. The guy I bought it from took good care of it, though he did have all of the lug nuts on backwards... Anyway, everything seems to work in the truck except for one small problem with the mode control cable, which I'll be asking about in the forums in a few minutes.
New guy here. I've been driving my 05 SR5 v8 4x4 for a while now and have managed to drive around the world 8.6 times!! (215K) with her. I recently moved to a location with a garage where I can start tooling on the old girl myself so I thought I would go ahead introduce myself to my future tundra tutors.
Long time member, first post in a while. Proud owner of 1st gen Tundra. The time has come for it's replacement. It still runs decent but want to upgrade. Bittersweet because this truck has been so reliable and has sentimental value. It was the first auto I bought with own income back in 2000.
Looking at the SR5 Double Cab 4x4. I'll be perusing the threads the help guide my selection.
Hey guys and gales, I wanted to touch base on the 2012 Toyota tundra super crew max platinum that I bought back in early 2019, this truck is what I've been searching for, I've owned 2 Tacomas in the past,really good trucks, but this crew max is the sh-t, it has a pro comp 6 inch lift with 37 1/2 altrain tires on 20 inch wheels with the 5.7 v-8 , I new before I bought this truck that it would be tough on gas, it gets about12.5 per gallon, highway or town or pulling boat,camper.well this past week I decided to take it to a alignment shop, before putting new tires on it, they were wearing on the outer edges a little bit, so when I was at shop,1 of the tech's came to me and we went and took a look at the rack and pinion, and it had good bit of play in it,so I told them to crunch the numbers to fix it, well the parts wasn't as bad as 1 would have thought, but when they told me labor price I about passed out,the 12,13,14,15 models they have to pull the engine out to replace the rack and pinion, man I have never had a problem like this out of Toyota before.but to let you Toyota tundra fans a little secret it's all worth it. This is the best towing truck of any, I would wager bet on that.I haven't bought any American vehicles since mid 90s , I'm truly sorry to say that, I'm American, but my past experience has been very costly with American vehicles bought brand new. Dodge,Ford Chevrolet all let me down before half paid for. That's why I started buying Toyota, very dependable automobiles. First major problem.but its behind me now.
I am new to this forum, because I feel that this forum is great to discuss with others about the Toyota cars.
But why others informations are about 10 years ago ? now it is 2019, December end to 2020.
