    Skepticism on my impressions of reliability would certainly be justified, since the product Toyota was selling 30+ years ago is not the one being sold now, and neither is the GM product. But, I believe Toyota has maintained their standards in all their product lines, even after being compromised and limited by US suppliers. Resale value is the key; if people are willing to pay a premium for used Toyota products, it's because their reliability has become legendary.

    No complaint on the Coverking seat covers. My opinion is they must be "breathable" because I have never noticed any feeling of "sweatiness" or clamminess". The material has a fabric covering laminated to the surface of the neoprene; its like a thick (1/8" - 3/16") sandwich. The Coverkings fit well, too...some purchasers say they are tight and hard to install, but I didn't find that to be the case.

    Good luck with your Tundra...you're going to "love what your Tundra does for you".

    Thanks for the feedback on Toyota vs GM long-term reliability! :-)

    I noticed your signature mentioned "Coverking neoprene seat covers".

    I always thought neoprene was not "breathable". Do those covers make you feel sweaty or clammy? Or are they comparable to cloth fabric?

    Hey Brudder. Where did your "reply" go in the guy looking to buy a Tundra and found three with various cam tower leaks?

    Hey it's all good brother, I'm just bustin' your balls. It's the internet I'm not offended, besides that my mom isn't a member here and will never know that she has a reservation in Dragos' horse trailer. As far as call outs, yeah it's more fun to quote the post then @ the user in it, that way they get two emails in their inbox. Unless they turned off notifications lol!!!

    Hmmmmm saving puppies. Well that just came about because of the way the site does the thumbs down, being that it doesn't show the user that did it. For some reason some people get all worked up over that and because it is the internet, well that is like asking for gas to be poured on the fire. I'll copy this to a PM in case you don't get a message that it is here. Just remember, lighten up Francis!!!

    Hey OldGuy,

    Nice to see someone else in this neck of the woods. I'm near La Grange.

    Got my truck 2 months ago. Want to use Lost Pines dealership in Bastrop and was wondering if you've got any experience or knowledge of them?
