    Lost track after #1.
    At least until the true gen 3 comes out in 2021 or so. Then probably a year or two after that for Toyota to get the kinks out of the new gen before trading it in.

    Some people get new trucks like every 5-6 years. I keep mine for long time. My other Truck is a 03 CTD "towtruck" 16 years now, still going strong. Just did 840 mi trip over the weekend. As long as some Idiot:homer: doesnt wreck me, I might still be driving my same tundra in 2035:fingerscrossed:

    I will consider something new at 500,000 miles. Maybe
    Traded my old 01 4runner at 475,00 with minimal repairs.
    Still ran great .. I regret losing that rig

    Until it is either stolen or it dies. I realize that, in keeping with the title of this post, “until it is either stolen or it dies” is not a duration, and, therefore, I’m not really answering the question. However, this is the only answer that I have, and I’m sticking with it...

    Been lurking on this forum for a while. Always been a fan of Toyota trucks and SUVs, even though I'm a BMW fanatic. Currently working on my forever fleet, which consist of:
    2008 BMW M3 Coupe, Sparkling Graphite with 6MT
    2007 BMW Z4M Roadster, Alpine White on Red with 6MT
    1999 BMW M3 Coupe, Techno Violet with 5MT

    Also have a 1997 4Runner which I use as a beater car and I love it. As a new homeowner, I've been considering replacing it with a 3rd gen, which I'll keep forever since it won't be a daily. The miles won't go up too much and I'm good at keeping my cars clean.

    I'm waiting to see when the Gen 4 comes out to see what that does to 3rd gens on the lot. I'm set on either a Platinum or 1794. Option 2 would be to get a 2017.

    These are truly wonderful machiens!

    I bought my 2010 with 108k miles and would like get up to 250k before I even think about trading it in for another Tundra. This truck has everything I want and need so unless it falls apart, I have no need for something new.

    Only 80k miles on my 2013 I bought new so it’s not even broken in but contemplating trading it in this fall when the 2020 comes out. Would like a true crew cab to better fit the car seat and a sunroof. Would also like the Apple car play and push button start which is why I’m at least holding off for the 2020. I also really like the new Sierra AT4’s but not sure they will have all the bugs worked out they’re having with the new models. So I’ll likely end up with another Tundra.

    Unfortunately, I'm leasing mine. But I'm looking forward to a purchase in 3 years.

    Initially, I thought 200,000 miles, but that is going to be too easy.

    I'm at 142,000 and virtually nothing has gone wrong with it...one drivers side front axle.

    Now I'm wondering if I have a chance at 300,000 miles.

    Which begs the question, which will live longer, my truck or me.

    My previous truck was a Chevy 3500 crew cab that I bought new in 1994 and drove until 2017 when it had too much rust damage to be safe. It had over 300K miles on it. I expect the same from my Tundra, or better.
