Good pics! I love the beach. Iíve driven many many trucks and jeeps on the beach and dunes, and the Tundra handled admirably. Not as good as my CJs, but good.

That is a badass truck if I have ever saw one. Fun for the whole family

I have a 2014 limited and had 8000 miles when I bought it, if I had to do it all over again I would buy an SR5 and put all the off road mods I want. The best mod I have done to my current one is king shocks all around, that being said tundras need a locking diff but you can get an aftermarket one preferably a rear locking diff if youre trying to choose between front and rear. The only thing I like about the pro is the bilstens (not rebuildable though like kings,fox,icon,ads) and the skid plate, other than that its a mediocre performer that any other model tundra can do with the right mods.

I'm here for the gangbang?!

LOL. I love my mediocre, poor performing truck. Kinda sad I bought such a POS.

Haters will be haters.

^^^ Yep, I guess so. Will make myself enjoy mine also. Lol. This truck is amazing. Was going on rough section on beach, lots of big bumps, etc at 45 mph Sunday morning. Most folks going 10-15, as did I in areas with other vehicles, 7 mile section of beach so had it to myself mostly. Cruises on highway like my previous Escalade. Interior space is cavernous, with my kids in back, and 95 lb german shepherd in floor board. Had her up to 110 mph today on way home from ordering my ARE Z cap. This truck is, terrible, nobody should buy them. Ever.

Yep, I had heard the rumor online. My dealer said the TRD PRO I bought will be their last. Said not being made in 2018.

Man...you might have fallen for the "this is the last one" trick that car salesmen try to pull. Not that it's not a great truck.

The Fast Lane Truck (which is typically full of crap) is the only site I could find that said the Pro wasn't going to be made for 2018. I couldn't find anything official on Toyota's pressroom or any other reputable site for that matter.

You could be right. The only official press release Iíve seen is for the new TRD Sport with the additional hood scoop, 20Ē wheels, new TSS safety system (translation: more electronics to fail), etc. When I went in and had my brake controller ECU updated, I asked about the new model year Tundras. They showed me some 2018 dealer promotional info which did not include the Pro.

Then again, that doesnít mean it wonít be made. Time will tell! That being said, the cement Pro they in stock sold in 5 days. Last one for them for 2017 (they were allocated one per quarter). They have 58 remaining Tundras in stock.

I don't know for sure that the Trd pro tundra isn't offered in 2018 but I did read that it's not coming back in 2018 in the recent edition of 4 wheel parts magazine.

Who knows. But they told me after I bought the truck. So there is that.

Sounds like a great truck that fits your lifestyle to a tee.

Have fun! Life is too short.

I talked to a Bilstein rep and he did say they are rebuildable and they also have an Internal Bump stop that allot of people don't know about. I asked him what an upgrade would be with what the Pro already has he said nothing. I was hoping he would say the 8000 series so I would upgrade. But no. I know King's have to be rebuilt quite often. Well sand car experience. My cousin had king's on his sandrail and we decided to take them off and check them. Blown out but was able to rebuild them.
