    Anyone hear a short and low "clunk" noise after about 20 seconds of driving right when you turn on and warm up and drive down the street? Within 15-20 seconds hear this low clunk. Looked on other forums and others are saying that Toyota is saying it's abs pressurizing and totally normal. Anyone else have this happening? Doesn't appear to do doing anything different or bad. Just strange. Sound is coming from left bottom of truck or at least it sounds like it.

    from another board

    "I took the vehicle to the dealer and a mechanic looked at it. I was told that this is completely normal and that every Tundra makes this clunk noise. He said that the ABS is getting pressurized. He explained that once the ABS has been pressurized once, it does not reset until the vehicle has be restarted. Which makes sense because once I hear the noise, I never hear it again unless I turn the truck off. "

    Mine does. I have seen the other thread too but just forgot to post in it. Happens right about 13-15 mph. If its normal i wont worry. But it is kinda annoying.
