    I typically flip my trucks every 5 years because they are low mileage units. When I bought my Tundra 3 weeks ago I sold my 2014 F150 with 28,000 miles. It was a win/win for me and the buyer. I had 3 people in line to purchase should something happen with the primary buyer. I have done this for every truck I have ever owned and the mileage is typically close to this number. So, with that being said, I am probably looking to keep my Tundra for 5 years.

    16 years, 285K miles and counting...can’t come up with a good reason to get rid of it as long as it keeps running this good on all the original parts. Just inherited Dad’s 2000 Camry last year after he passed; that still runs like a champ. Can’t kill these Toyotas!

    Gonna keep it till the wheels fall off, then I might put the stock rims back on and drive till they fall off. Honestly, I plan to keep it for a long time. Last vehicle was 17 years old, Harley was 14 years old before I sold it and wife had 10 years on a Honda Fit before moving her to a new Rav-4. I keep vehicle till they are just to tired and not dependable anymore. I love not having a car note. ( gonna be awhile.)

    I'm intending to keep mine for a long time, that's a big part of the reason I went with the Tundra to begin with! None of the other newer half tons have impressed me with their long term dependability.

    Just flipped 100k miles on my Tundra this week. Plan on keeping it at least as long as my old Tacoma. Had 02' Taco for 13yrs and put 300,000 miles on it.

    It’s paid off, and I love it, so as long as gas doesn’t jump past $5/gallon, I’m keeping it indefinitely

    I sold my Tacoma and bought the Tundra to pull a travel trailer. If we enjoy traveling and camping in the trailer we will probably sell it and buy a motor home in the next few years, sell the Tundra, and get back into a mid sized truck.

    Love my Tundra but I never keep my vehicles for very long. If the new Tundra is cool at all, I’ll probably buy one and get rid of this one. I hate to say it but I’m also intrigued by the new super duty’s, a huge Diesel engine would be fun too, lol. Prob won’t do it, but who knows.

    I’m a converted die hard Chevy guy and glad I went for the Tundra.
    With what it cost and the planned mods the truck will be with me until it’s unable to be repaired.

    I’m at 160,000 miles on my 9.5 year old 2010, with virtually no problems at all.

    I hope to make it to 300,000, which should be about another 10 years.

    I love my truck and I love my wife, just don’t make me me choose between the two.

    I had my 05 Tundra for 13 years and 170,000 some thousand miles. Hopefully my 18 will last just as long or longer unless i decide to get myself a retirement present which will hopefully be in about 13 years.

    No longer paying high vehicle registration fees in California! Big mod!
    Well, I did the math. Knowing how long these vehicles last, ad the amount of driving I do in it; I am pretty sure the truck will outlive me. I bought it at 60 years old and I plan to have it till I can no longer drive. Same thing with the 4Runner i bought the wife (last year). We'll both be driving them well into our old age. I'll be that old guy driving that old truck.

    I had my Tacoma for 16 years, in which I did not spent one penny on repairs; only tires, brake pads, wiper blades and oil changes. I believe the Tundra can be the same, but I use it for work (Tacoma was not for work), so I am putting about 35,000 miles a year on it. I will probably not keep it that long. It will be 4 years old when the new 2022 generation comes out. So I will probably wait one more year and get a new one when this one is 5 years old. I think it will be at an age and mileage then where I can still get a decent trade value for it.

    We will colonize Mars before I'm done with my 2017 Tundra. 59,700 miles right now.

    She sits each day/night next to her older brother. The 1997 T-100 4WD that has 260,000 miles and just keeps going and going and going (did I say "factory 5 speed?" I thought I did. 3 pedals on the floor!!!!!).

    I'm planning to keep mine as long as possible. I'm hoping to get 15 years and about 150k kilometers/100k miles (I don't drive much) out of it before it's time for something new. I'm basing that on how long my dad has kept his vehicles, most of which he replaced due to worn out interiors, rather than mechanical issues.

    This "How long will you...' question assumes that you bought enough truck in the first place, and that your needs have not changed.

    Maintain, repair, restore and modify is my long term plan for these trucks.

    I've had mine coming up on 7 years. Just a little over 90,000 miles right now. Getting rid of it this year. Too many hassles for too little capability. Time for a heavy duty.

    Same here, I made the mistake of trading my 2013 Crew Max for a 2017 Sequoia, Keeping the 2020 Cement CrewMax as long as possible. Next upgrade will be a tonneau.

    Plan on keeping mine for a long long time. It's the first new off the lot vehicle I've ever bought and plan on running it til it wont anymore. Me and the wife both bought brand new 17's from the dealer (my tundra her 4r) and are both of the same mind. Modifying/building them up and keeping them forever haha

    Just picked up a 2020 platinum. The plan is to keep it for a couple years until the Tesla cyber truck is built:p
