    Very nice!

    I love the look of the first generation Tundra. So much the better when they look this good!

    What is the inside width of the bed on the stepside? I'm considering one; but wondering it it limits my camper options (like a 4-wheel pop-up).

    I generally search manufacturers sites, determine what I want to buy, then snag them by part number on Ebay. So far I've never had an issue getting what I ordered in a timely manner.

    As far as maintenance, I would prioritize that timing belt unless you have records of it being replaced within the last 90k with OEM parts.

    Nice come up!
