    Hello!

    I recently inherited a 2005 Tundra SR5 4x4 Access cab from my father who passed away.

    It was a well used work truck with 90k miles, a brand new shiny frame rebuilt a year ago (recall from Toyota) and all of the ~90k maintenance was just done to it including belts, pumps, etc. It is a great truck! I am here to learn about them and see what people have done with them.

    Thanks in advance!

    Wow, thanks for the warm welcome everyone! What a cool community. I helped him work on it a bit installing trailer brakes, stereo stuff and what not, so I have a good connection between the truck and him. I plan to take some solo road trip adventures in it to process the loss and to kind of pay homage to the guy. I am actually looking forward to that.

    Here is a photo of the truck, minus the black Leer commercial cap that I took off temporarily.

    Welcome from San Antonio! Prayers for you and your family in your loss. I lost my Dad 15 years ago and to this day still find myself picking up the phone to call him about stuff. Great looking truck you got to remember him with. Those solo trips will not be solo if you are in that truck, he will be with you.
