Default Bit the new truck bug

Well I decided to go and buy a new truck I have a 2011 Tundra with 277k on it. I looked at many vehicles but kept coming back to the Tundra. Iíve had two of them with great reliability so I bought a new one. This is the first 4x4 and already put a lift and 33Ē tires on it. Hopefully Iíll get the same reliable experience as I did with the other two. Here is a before and after and also my 2011 just to show it off, it still runs like a champ. Thanks

Is the upside down one the old truck? Did you trade it in or for sale?

No I didn’t trade it in, and yes it is the upside down picture. I bought it new and has always been maintained by Fred Hass in Spring Texas. Still undecided on selling it because it is a great truck, as you can tell I like the color. I put the 3/2 lift on it today along with the Fuel rims and pro Comp tires. It rides really nice no road humm or anything. Thanks

Yessir, you done good sir! they are the only folks that touched my 1st one and now my new one! I leveled mine and also went with bigger tires. I absoulutely am happy with my 2nd Tundra CrewMax, it is my first with 4x4.

Traded my 2008 in towards a 2018 Sequoia for the Mrs. I got her 2015 4x4 Tundra. Both nice rides. Mines the chick magnet though!

Have had my first tundra for a year. Hit 14k miles on it going to Oklahoma last week. If I get half the reliability others have got I don’t think I’ll switch back to Ford or Chevy

Just remember to do the oil change and tire Rotation and the regular intervals of service and it will last forever.

I've had my 2017 since it was brand new. I'm in every 5k miles. Other than replacing the battery this past year, it's been great. Nothing fancy. Just solid. My only complaint is the stupid radio now drops my blu-tooth connection on my iphone when on a call. This just started happening this past year. Other than that, I love my Tundra.

Look at your front tires. If the bottoms are at all toes in you need to get it aligned again. With a 3/2 on a tundra it’s really hard to get a proper alignment without doing upper control arms. Tundras are super heavy and you will kill the outside edge of the tires very quickly. Just been my experience.

Duggys garage is the place to get a proper alignment in your tundra in Houston. I have had several tundras all lifted, etc and unfortunately have experienced all of these issues. Tires are expensive!
