"I bought this truck new in 2005. Although it is not 4 wheel drive, I have never had an issue because I have avoided driving it in snow or on ice. I didn't want the damage associated with chemical treatments, and the truck has just been examined by Toyota as part of it's recall, and it passed with flying colors, although they did do an underbody treatment anyway.
The truck has had all required services on schedule, and it has performed flawlessly regardless of it's use. It has the off-road package which I have used, as well as the tow package, and they are essential if you want full utility.
The interior is spacious, the rear seat has three configurations: passenger seating for three; seat back laid down; and seat folded against front seat backs. There are compartments under the rear seat which is where I keep my handguns when traveling. The front console is roomy and has plenty of storage.
The engine, which is a 282 CI V8 has ample power for towing, and the heat and AC is typical Toyota efficiency. It's the fastest cool down in the heat of summer of any car I've ever owned. And at 115,000 miles works perfectly.
The wheel alignment on this truck is awesome, takes a pounding and retains the alignment for a long time. The roads here are bumpy and with a full tank or a load rides and drives very well. When the tank is close to empty, with no load the ride is on the choppy side, but then it is a truck.
All in all, I have every intention of replacing it with another Tundra although with no reason for a four door anymore, I will opt for a conventional two door cab. Love the Tundra, and this is the first for the series having replaced the T-100 truck. I did not experience the new car bugs and fixes most new series go through. If I could replace it with another brand new 2005, I would without hesitation."
