The bed bounce would be extreme situations I believe. If the bed is too bouncy then it would indicate bad shocks. There is a video around that shows the Tundra bed bouncing on a course designed to produce the bounce. However that video was shot with a Tundra that did not have the TRD package which would have changed the outcome tremendously due to the better shocks on the TRD.

Tires are likely the issue if your getting the beat the death feeling, or jarring feeling, try adjusting tire pressure. You could also try adding some weight over the rear axles to see if that helps. There was a TSB Toyota released back in 08 I believe that did address the bed bounce issues.

Now I find that pretty funny, I have driven the same roads and I actually switched from my 18" TRD rims and tires due to being to soft and smooshy, Limo type ride. I upgraded to 20" limited rims and Toyo proxie IIs tires for a stiffer ride and less body roll. My truck rides great, no jaring, no complaints it rides better then the 2012 Lexus gx460. I'd guess it has more to do with tire pressure then shocks. If I crank the tire pressure to max it can ride like a tank for sure.

Coming from an 89 dodge 1 ton diesel, my truck rides like a 4 wheel drive cadillac. No matter what road surface it's on, it's a million times better than that tank.

My truck is smoother than my g37, but not as smooth as my lexus. The thicker the side wall the less noise and smoother ride (Sacrifice handling a bit). Rims and tires can make a big difference.

2008 Tundra limited.

Here in Vegas on the 215 before Warm Springs my 2011 DC would buck like a bronco. I have a 2012 CM and it bounces no more than wifey's C-250.

I guess we really need to say which cab version truck it is that the issue arises most in...


I put the Laughter in Slaughter

KTM 450xc QUAD, Baldwin head, Ti valves, 8/06 cam, motoworks, goldspeed tires...

2010 CM RW, blacked out, Led's,Hid's bhlm, 315/60r18 Grabber's, XD wheels, Aero turbine exhaust, more than meets the eye.

I like weapons.
I dont capitalize, use spell check, or punctuate properly...
and you can call me Power.

2011 TRD DC Tundra here, I personally think its the bed bounce issue.

I can also probably guess exactly where on I-5 its happening. Wouldn't be right at Shoreline and 205th/Edmonds Ferry exit would it?

I experience it in the same place, terrible joints in the freeway in that spot. Never noticed it in my Mustang but the shocks in that were mushy as shit before I sold it.

I had a buddy in the truck the other day driving through there and he sad what is that? I said It's a truck is what it is.. I just stomped on it and he forgot about the 1000 yds of bouncing lol

i had that same feeling when i had my double cab in certain places.tried adjusting the tire pressure in the limited 20's i had on there,didn't make any difference.it didn't go away untill i put the sand bags in the bed for extra snow traction.now that i have a crewmax,i don't get that feeling anymore.like someone else said,the shorter bed doesn't have as much bed bounce.i drove through PA. one time to pick up a tool cart and it drove me nuts till i got off the highway.

Same issue here. 2009 CM TRD, 5.7L (limited). 55K miles Had it three months.

I had the TSB done and it helped on lighter sections but does nothing where the bounce is jiggling the crap out of me. Tried more and less PSI in the tires no changes.

Going to rig a headrest mounted camera to show the huge amount of bouncing. You should see the rear end hopping up and down even with a topper (210 LBS) and as much as 250 LBS of sand. I have no idea why the frame needs to flex this much. Never noticed it with the test drives as they were on brand new asphalt. Does the same thing empty without the topper.

Getting ready to try some different shocks. We will see what happens if I can get the video camera mounted and catch the real impacts.

To me it is the same with it on / off. Maybe a touch better on. I added that after about a month of owning it.

yeah 5.7 and 4x4. Never happened on the 22 inch TRD nor the 18inch forged TRDs with the original tires and 275/70/18 BFG all terrains now. I took the front swaybar off when I put some King coilovers and it got even better. The rears are still stock. Gonna install some King shocks with Coachbuilder's shackles.
