Toyota Convert

Hey, as the title suggest, I'm new to Toyota. I've always been a Chevy man but my father-n-law is big on Toyota. Long story short I sold my Chevy and picked up a 2012 tundra DC. I am very happy with it.

Welcome to the Forum. You won't regret leaving your GM vehicle behind.

I have an 08 Tundra and considering the service life its been pretty good so far. 87k and overall not many issues, a rear axle bearing failure which was completely covered under warranty. A couple of nonsense recalls, other than that just normal maintenance. This truck has given me far less issues than the vehicle it replaced that I only had for 2 years and spent more time being repaired than I did driving it. The only other issue with my tundra is the IFS sucks for any actual work in rough conditions. I've had 2 alignments done as a result of nothing more than driving down a few gravel roads hauling firewood....something that I've never had an issue with any other truck...then again my previous trucks were all solid front axles. If Toyota ever gives us a 3/4 or 1 ton with a solid axle I'll be standing at the dealer waiting to buy one...until then I'm gonna run my 08 tundra till it won't move any longer LOL.

Tundra was also my 1st Toyota truck, though I have had several 4Runners. Welcome
