New To Trucks

I've never been a truck guy, but since I started taking care of bank owned homes, I've found a need for one. First I had an old beat up 95 Ford F350 Crew Cab long bed, but I spent so much on gas that it was worth it to buy a nice truck.

I chose a 2010 Tundra Double Cab 4x4.

I put around 3000 miles per month on it because I service a 150 sq mile area. I'm here to make sure I know as much as I can to take good care of it.

Looks great man! Congrats on the truck! That is the exact truck I've always wanted (black). I owned a gray 2010 that was amazing. Like 30Plus said, keep oil in it, and change the tires, it'll last you a long time.
