Nice truck:thumbsup:
A guy bought a buddy's 27 Contender and towed it back to Mississippi with a Tundra from Tampa in 9 hours. It takes me 8.5 hours to get there without pulling a boat.
Making me think about getting one, too.

Congrats.

I have and love the same truck, although its a 2011. Same color even. Has been great so far. TONS of power, drivetrain is exceptional.

4x2. I never had any problems towing my boat with my Tacoma and it was 4x2 also. I'm gonna give it a 3/2 lift and put 34" tires on 18" wheels. Gonna black out the headlights and tail lights and do a stereo upgrade.

Nice looking truck. I have a 2002 Tundra and it has served me very well. May yours provide you many years of service, fun and safety.

Good looking trucks, really liking the new Tundra's. The owner's seem to love them as well.

Nate, you'll have no trouble pulling that boat of yours. Mine handles mine without sweating.

I put bigger tires on my '10 4X4 crewmax, pretty sure that and little lift is what killed my mileage. You cannot find larger tires that are not D or E load range, they are way heavier than the P tires that came on it. I like the look and the added stability of the heavier load range tires and I drive the truck less than 8K miles a year so it is not a huge deal for me, but it does get anoying having to put gas in it every 240 miles, wish it had a bigger tank.
