Might join the family

Hello all,

I have a 98 black 4Runner with 292k miles and she is tired.

I have dreamed of a Tundra for years.

Now one is in the budget.

But I'm having trouble finding the exact used one I want.


Also can I live without the things my 4Runner has like interior storage, and not so aweful gas mileage?

I made a longer post in general seeking advice.

It was moved to offtopic for some dumb reason, so hardly anyone sees it.

Thanks for reading.

Looking forward to being able to post freely here.

My general section post is still not showing up.

Really need some feedback from Tundra owners....

Thanks for the welcome!

Yes i intend to get a camper shell, or hard bed cover once I finally find the right truck.

Its amazing how slim the pickings are here in the mid-atlantic with all these people and car dealers you would think it would be easy.

Anything but lol.

Still looking at trucks 200-300 miles away .........

Questions choosing between Platinum and Limited model

I am tired of tying to post questions on this stupid ass forum lol.

Every post I make in general never shows up.

So, I am forced to post it here where the right people will likely never see it, but here's to hoping!

I really want cooled/vented seats the Platinum model has, but they are hard to find with my options.

Is it reasonably easy/affordable to convert the limited Seats to the Platinum cooled ones, dash switches and all?

Has anyone ever done this?

I hope so, finding a Limited is MUCH easier at this point.

Also, what other differences are their between the Platinum and Limited that I might care about, I really am unsure other then interior pieces and the vented seats....?

Does any Tundra come with an optional rear locking differential like the 4Rrunner's do?
I have not seen any listing on this when searching for trucks.
Tell me Toyota didn't leave this out of their full size pickup truck......?

Thanks for any feedback, trying to narrow this down and choose a truck so I can move on from the anxiety of searching for months in frustration lol.

None of your posts belong in "General", therefore, they will not be approved.

You already have a thread discussing buying a Tundra. There is no reason for you to make any other threads about buying a Tundra. You chose not to post that one in the correct section, but since it was in off-topic, it was just left there.
