    Yeah timing belt and water pump should be done. Ball joints replaced and grease everything often.

    How does it drive? Any tire shaking or steering pull? Are the shocks original?

    Timing belt/water pump are the most important. Aside from that, swap spark plugs if needed with Denso or NGK and keep your fluids fresh, that's it. Enjoy and welcome from Ventura!

    it has original shocks trd tow pkg,Limited slip in the back everything feels solid no play anywhere. the brakes do make this click clack noise when im about to brake gently but ive been told by a couple of toyota people owners and at the dealership that thats a tundra thing still not sure if its bullshit or what.def needs a tuneup i feel like im getting 11 or 12mpg street and 13 hwy ummm kinda of sluggish on the pedal but when punched WOW Buddy!!!!! lol. the guys at toyota said theres no indicators showing the timing belt or water pump being replaced even after i pointed out that the timing belt still had its branding on it in crisp white letters and they told me that 140xxx on the odometer is nothing for a tundra engine and that wasnt good enough of a indicator to say it was replaced.overall i bought this with the idea its mine 4ever and i want to build it up right and solid for the kiddos u know 5yr old and 6month old.
