    Having already done research and test drives, and I have learned quite a bit just lurking on these forums, I am heading out to look at a Tundra at the least expensive dealership in the area. I think I have covered my bases, tow package, CrewMax cab, off-road package 5.7 engine.

    Any thoughts on what I might have missed?

    We will be using it for a year long family towing trip.

    This is the truck I will be getting.

    Good to know, I think they use standard pics, does the doublecab ever have bench seats? Cause that is what we need.

    Welcome from NC! You might want to think about picking the Super White color. It has a few extra horsepower and gets better gas mileage...

    I like the column shifter and bench seat! See if you can get them to throw in a spray in bedliner. Maybe the bed rail system as well as anything else you can think of.

    You might consider getting one with the SR5 or higher package which adds a 36 gallon gas tank - perfect for towing.

    And Welcome!

    Looks like it is an SR5 which should include the 38 gallon tank.
