    Just 'inherited' my wife's 04 TRD Tundra after blowing head gaskets and God knows what else in my GS300. Like the truck a lot, its been in our family since 'new', but the nerve damage in my back doesn't. Thought I'd start here looking for suggestions as to better/more supportive replacement front buckets (just started thread in Marketplace) and how to shore up the ride a bit.

    Welcome! I almost purchased the IS300(?) S version. Fun car, but just isn't practical and I would rather drive a truck as an everyday.

    The GS was practical in that the wif & I (she has her issues too) could ride it all day and not have much, if any, issues getting upright after getting out. We love the T but lately we're both having to wear tens units if we spend even 1/4 of a day in it.

    Welcome Roger. You can definitely lower the tundra to get it to the right height for you and I'm sure there are thousands of aftermarket seats for you to choose from. Sorry but I am not able to help you with either but I am hoping that we have a member(s) on here that can point you in the right direction.
