But the Camry is a little beast in and of itself that will do 0-60 in under 6 seconds and still get high 20s on the highway so you will be more inclined to drive it and keep the miles off the new Crewmax.
Yeah the mpg in the Camry isn't bad I bought a 12 v6 SE last year for work, (to go along with the tundra) and it managed a combined average of just over 29mpg which is actually better than the highway mpg rating on the sticker. New Camry and tundra isn't a bad combo of cars.

Have fun trying to wear out the Tundra.... Remember that post the other day about the 700,000 mile Tundra! You've got at least the better part of a decade before you wear that truck out!!!

I drove around 280 miles yesterday and 290 miles today.

You could do a commercial for Toyota. Customer tries to wear out his RC faster so he can justify a Crewmax. 200K later he is still working at it.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

Slim you've got a great looking truck so I understand why it would be hard to drive the car while the Tundra is seducing you with it's stylish looks and V8 power. My 2011 CM almost has as many miles as your's because I insist in driving it everywhere. The wife has a '10 Camry SE which is a nice car but I hate driving it much less riding in it. The only time we take the car is when the Tundra is too muddy and the wife complains about the chance she might get dirt on her clothes getting in or out of it. Just go ahead trade but swap the shocks and tires to the new CM...sounds to me like you only need to decide on a color

There is a Toyota Dealer on a service road by my work that I have to drive by 5 times a day. They have a Black Crewmax 4x4 sitting out front. It sure is pretty.

I will buy a white truck if I buy another one.

Take one of those ARs and shoot yourself in your gas pedal foot. The scar of that wound will forever be your punishment for 1) buying a PT cruiser and 2) for trying to convince us that it could ever be "Killer".

Selling the PT cruiser is the smartest thing I've ever heard of you doing....EVER.

^^^ Slim is probably too calculated for this...he's probably thinking about the smoking deal he'll get on a close out model with the 2014's hit the lots

If I went to the dealer to trade my truck in , I guarantee they would try to lowball me because of the struts ,tires and other mods.

I would make sure my wife was with me so I didn't wind up in handcuffs and tell them I would be back in four hours with the OEM struts and tires on it.

I hope okslim is getting enough sleep. I tossed and turned for weeks until I picked up my Tundra. My wife knows when I get set on something their is no use fighting me - I win almost every time.

Good luck Buddy
