    So, I went from some general poking around on the Interweb a few weeks ago to doing some in depth searches for a used Tundra, then switched to looking for a new truck on dealer websites, to finally going to look at few Friday, to buying a '17 SR5 yesterday !!! :)

    It was way quicker than I had expected (went to just look at a couple more trucks yesterday), but I came away thinking I got a pretty good deal - maybe you folks can let me know how I made out.

    I drove a truck that I liked Friday (had everything I wanted, ok color) but the dealership had a no haggle policy and was at $37.5K. Thought it was an ok price but really wanted to feel like I was getting a "deal". Yesterday I drive another Tundra that didn't have everything I wanted but they said they could "make it work". Then came the "pressure" and they wanted to know what it would take to get the deal done - I said $35K out the door. So they did that (actually $36,750 with $1000 for my POS '04 Ford and $750 rebate). What I got:
    2017 SR5 - gray w/ graphite interior
    5.7L engine
    all the SR5 standard stuff (Entune package - not sure if that is standard in all SR5s?)
    alloy wheel upgrade
    spray bed liner with deck rails
    cast aluminum running boards (this is what they had to put on to make the truck "right" for me - had cast aluminum boards)
    all weather floor mats
    the truck also had exhaust tip and black tailgate insert - not sure if those are staying on truck or not?)

    MSRP was $40,271 (with cast aluminum boards)

    I also ended up getting the whole Zeibart package (really wanted the undercoat and paint protection) - paid $1050 for that. I had hoped to come home and research the rust protection options, but had to do it on the fly there. Seemed like a decent deal (10 yr. warranty and 5 years of free touch-ups).

    Pics will come soon. Still need to go get it (they had to do the board switch and Zeibart).

    Congrats on the new purchase. Don't worry about if WE think is a good deal as you'll get plenty of opinions. If YOU think it's a good deal, then that's all that matters at the end, and sounds like it was :thumbsup:

    Not a bad deal! I came to realize that I spent too much damn time worrying about the price of the truck - as long as you were comfortable with what you paid that is all that matters!

    Good deal. I too picked up my Sr5 Crew Max last night. MSRP was $43,149 I got it for $38,764
    I had to drive 3.5 hours for it but well worth it.
