Nice truck
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.

Make that 3 of us. Mines a 2010.

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