Just bought a well used 5.7L

I just upgraded my tow vehicle to quit abusing my little Sienna minivan. Since I still needed the passenger space, I went with the 8 passenger Tundra, a 2008 Sequoia. 😁

There's something about turning my own wrenches on my vehicles that makes me feel more confident about their reliability. I've been a Subaru fella for the last couple decades, but the need for room and power has been converting my garage to Toyota recently. I'm new to towing as well, but I learn things quickly (even if it's the hard way, lol).

Nice to meet ya,
Roy

The 5.7 is a great engine! How many miles are on it?
Mine had 270k when I bought it 2 years ago.

It has 177k miles on it. Since I plan to use it mainly for a vacation/fun vehicle I'm hoping it'll last me quite some time.

My 07 has 255K on it and I used it as a tow vehicle for the first time in it's life last weekend. Round trip from Houston to San Antonio, 4runner on the trip there, RX350 on the trip back. Roughly 500 miles because I had to go pick up the trailer. Did an excellent job going and coming.
