    Hello all: My name is Jerry. I'm new to the forum and hope to find it useful. Not only to ask questions on how do I do this or how do I do that but to also offer my own experience and offer solutions. I'm no stranger to a wrench but not an expert. More like a Jack of all trades master of none. I bought my 08 Tundra 5.7 DBL cab new with 7 miles on it. It currently has 98000 miles and by far the best pick up truck I've ever owned. I live in Connecticut and as you know we get our fair share of snow storms. My truck has NEVER been stuck. I never take it off road and wash it x1 month. Always vacuuming and cleaning windows. It came with the tow package with extendable side mirrors. The only 2 problems I had was the air injection pumps seizing (which was covered 100%) under warranty. And it needed a new water pump at 50,000 miles. I notice the rear bumper rusting so I bought a new one and used POR 15 on the inside (after prep) and installed easy and it of course looks brand new. I noticed that my trailer hitch and receiver were also rusted so I used a metal grinding wheel and a wire brush to remove all rust. Prepped the hitch and brushed on the POR 15 and it to looks brand new what I had left over I put on bottom lip of tail gate. The only down side is the gas mileage 13-15 mpg. It appears this truck will out live me or I'm gonna drive it into the ground then buy a new one.
