Officially the new owner of a 2010 Toyota Tundra DC! Got a pretty good feel for it on my 800 mile test drive back from Texas to Kentucky. The body has maybe 5 extremely minor cosmetic defects and the interior was pretty clean as well. Truck drives and handles great. Everything feels tight and it has a lot of power. I averaged 16-17 mpg on the way home and I am quite pleased with that considering it has 295/70r18 (34") Nitto Ridge Grapplers which are a mud/all terrain hybrid tire. The a/c click mentioned in previous post seems to only happen the first time you move it from vent to floor. After that it doesn't make any more noise when changing where the air blows out. I believe this could be something that has gotten past the filter considering the cabin air filter was filthy and had gotten a hole in it. I replaced the filter and vacuumed the duct out best I could through the cabin filter access hole. I plan to remove the blower and vacuum down stream of the fan as well. The only other issue I had was ants. I noticed them the next day after getting it home. This truck sat quite a bit so I guess they found their way in and got stirred up on the long drive. I put out an ant bait trap that captured quite a few and I haven't seen any in the last day so I guess that trap took care of them. Overall I'm very pleased with the truck and look forward to many miles behind the wheel. Pics to come this weekend!

Nice looking truck! You'll definitely want to check out all the fluids and see if anything is needing servicing. (Oil, transmission, differentials, transfer case, power steering, coolant.) The plugs should also be replaced at 10-years with OEM iridiums. (Lots of fake ones out there so I just go to my dealer to get them.)

Thanks! So far I've replaced the cabin air filter, wiper blades, and greased the universals. I plan to swap all the drive line fluids to Amsoil synthetics in phases. Engine oil till has about 2500 miles before it needs changing so ill probably do the diffs and transfer case first since they all use the same fluid. Engine oil after that and then replace trans fluid at 100k. I saw the recommended interval for spark plugs is 120k so ill plan for that unless I start to see any issues. I also considered doing a coolant, power steering, and brake fluid flush at some point just for good measure.
