You've come back!! :D :D
figured I stop by and say what's up to my long lost tundra brothers.

I live near chi-town and I am pondering going to release, but it's a PITA to deal with downtown in the big city. I hate crowds

I hope they don't FUBR this thing,

I don't want to be driving a GMC...they give those things away..

I couldn't believe the discounts when I was shopping in 2010. My tundra is now worth WAY more than the GMC I was looking at. Have to pay the piper sooner or later

General observation here, but everyone that echoes this sentiment, are you saying you bought the wrong truck to begin with? IDK, it seems like the cool thing to say as of late. Diesel in this town is over $4.25 a gallon while gas is about $3.25. I don't see the benefit of diesel with the extra costs of ownership. There has to be something better on the horizon no? I'm not downplaying diesel at all as I know it's fantastic for mpg and pulling power. But here in Vegas, it seems it costs more to drive one.

I just want to understand more about diesel and it's allure as a DD. I know in other countries diesel is cheaper but I'll be damn if in Vegas it's liquid gold.
ya this really seems to be going around of late. But, I don't think I would fork over an extra 4-5K and spend up to 1.00 more per gallon just to have a deisel.

If you tow that heavy, you need a 3/4 or 1 ton truck anyway, so the 1/2 ton deisel doesn't really work from what I have seen. I guess the RAM will be the ginny pig and maybe it will be the best thing ever, of course,

you'll have to buy a ram to get one though:eek:

and then you have to factor in extra repair costs as well:lol5:

I still can't get over the single beam headlights. Dual filament lights suck! We should be seeing standard projector halogens, not a move backwards!
I find my current tundras headlights to be very good. i really don't need any upgrade there.

yea my stock headlight are pretty good! I am always haveing people flashing their lights at me bc they think my lights are on bright and then I put mine on bright and their like oh....
same here, I have to dial them down a bit.

I think i run them at 2 or so on the level dial in the cab

still to this day, when i drive at night or in weather, I think damn the headlights do a good job. Plus I have never had to replace anything so far.

so they can keep any new fancy headlights off the new truck IMO

I guess i'm in the minority but, I like it, especially the interior looks really nice. I will be checking out a crewmax maybe at the end of the year

I like it more and more.

i'm thinking of a platinum grey metallic with color match grill surround and then flat black the insert. Add flat black or gunmetal colored wheels, cooper st maxx tires, and we have a winner.:lol5:

love that interior.

don't know if I will be able to afford the platinum though, and a limit will take more effort to color match it looks like.

can anyone confirm this??

Tough new image, added power ensure the 2014 Toyota Tundra continues as a top pickup truck - NY Daily News

"Powering the new-look Tundra is a choice of three engines, which are re-calibrated but have not received significant hardware changes"

"The V-8 exhaust is retuned to help with engine efficiency, and during acceleration emit a throatier sound than the previous model."

"Performance figures for the 2014 Tundras haven't been announced, but "slightly improved" fuel economy is expected"

"Retuning the suspension -- including changing the shock absorbers, springs and spring rates"


I don't recall seeing these before? the only change I saw before was shock absorber valve change. I never saw anything regarding fuel efficiency and especially V8 exhaust sounds, ect

could these and more small details be coming??

I know that someone asked about this earlier in the thread, but are there any guinea pigs here on the site who are planning on getting one, this year? While I'm currently not a fan of the new style, I have a feeling that the front end will grow on me, and there's no doubt that the interior is an upgrade, though I like the version we all have. I think the new grille will look better in the SR5 style, meaning a chrome surround with the black middle.

When envisioning a lifted Mag Gray (or whatever they call the new gray) 2014 with black wheels and a set of 295/70/18s, I can't imagine it being *totally* hideous. As much as I really want to not like the new one, I'm wondering how much of that is biased (not that there's anything wrong with having two asses) because of the fact that I just bought another Gen 2. I effing love my truck, but I have a feeling that I might eventually want to get in on the new action, once they've tweaked a few things and ironed out any potential issues.
I am likely going to look at one and I may buy one if the math works out.

I am also thinking of a mag grey platinum crewmax with flat black wheels or dark charcoal wheels wrapped with ST Maxx tires like I have now, with the grill insert painted flat black. That will be sweet looking...

does anyone know if there is a paint durable (professionally done of coarse) that you could use on the plastic portion of the grill insert that would hold up?

Even as much as people have bashed the truck, you've got to keep in mind that there are a lot of people out there who HAVE to be the first to have something, even if it isn't very awesome....like the Jones's :D

Then, the Smith's down the road can come in and buy the Jones's used truck, 2-3 years later, at a reasonable price ;)
I also think that there are some that can't afford a new truck again this soon and so they have to bash it because they are stuck with the truck they have already and don't want to admit it. (not saying you personally).

someone can buy my 2010 at a reasonable price;):lol5:

ps. love the sig pic
