New Tundra in Baton Rouge

Have three month old twin boys, and sadly their car seats would not safely fit in my 2010 FJ Cruiser, so I needed to get a new vehicle. Minivans were not even a consideration for me....

Snagged a great deal on a 2012 still on my dealer lot on Friday. 5.7L CrewMax, 4x4, 20" rims, BFG All Terrains, Entune. Only thing I wish it had was power seats, other than that it exceeds all of my expectations. I can already tell this is a great truck.

I hated to see the FJ go, but this is a worthy replacement for me.

NICE Truck. Is it true the FJ's are nearly impossible to back up because of the blind spots?
