    None.
    I've had my 2001 Tundra for 3 years so far. I bought it from an older gentlemen for 10500 when it had 84k on it. It was a great find for the area I'm in and have been more than pleased with it. It's the V8 Access Cab 2wd. I haven't made any mods to it at all, it's bone stock, even has original steel wheels and smaller tires lol. Hey, I don't like the steel wheels either, but getting new wheels and tires is expensive and the gas mileage is good :). I've been catching up on some regular maintenance lately. I change the oil every 3k to 4k. The oil barely looks dirty when I change it.

    Stuff I've done and what I have planned to do:

    Tinted the front windows to match the back ones
    Replaced front headlights, easier than trying to de-yellow the old ones, it was cheap anyway.
    Replaced 2 O2 sensors
    Replaced the radiator about a year ago now, it had a hairline crack along the top, never lost much fluid and I replaced it quickly so no damage done.
    Replaced front brake pads with Akebono pads. So quiet now. Old pads still had life, just got tired of constant brake screeching. I replaced them and the rotors when I bought the truck, I should have used quality pads like Akebono in the first place.
    Bought a fuel filter replacement, just haven't got around to it.
    Bought 8 new plugs, again haven't got around to it, probably this week or weekend.
    I currently have no bed protection and would love to get it line-xed.

    The truck runs like a top except for what I think is an exhaust leak, probably cracked header. Makes a ticking sound for the first 30 seconds or so after start up and then goes away. I've had a car in the past that had ticking valves, doesn't sound the same to me. It doesn't seem to have gotten any worse in the time that I've owned the truck so I haven't tried hard to diagnose or fix.
