    New here.

    I’ve owned (still do, wife’s rig) 2006 4Runner with about 194K miles. I just sold my 2018 ORDC long bed Tacoma that I owned since new. Hated the payment and wanted something bigger and always loved the 1st gen Tundras.

    I just purchased a 2005 Limited Tundra with about 174K miles that was really taken care of. I look forward to it lasting awhile. It just had brand new suspension done, to include the LBJ. Water pump/timing belt will hit the 9 year mark in about a year. It was last done around 102k.

    Only thing I want to do immediately is upgrade the sound system. It has the JBL audio in it, but with it being so old, it sounds pretty horrible and would like something new. I also want to upgrade the stock nav system to something with Apple CarPlay.

    First impressions of the truck:

    It’s way bigger than my ‘18 Tacoma. It has some of the most comfortable seats I’ve sat it. It drives great. I think my favorite features are the ball vent under the steering column, the roll down back window, and the grab handle for the driver’s side. I hated not having one in the newer Taco.

    Okay, that’ll do for now.
