    Hi gang
    Really excited to be searching for a used/new to me Tundra. Im coming from a Silverado2001 2500HD and wanting a change. Im feeling confident the Tundra will be up to the task.

Hoping Ill find a newer 5.7 4x4 DC leather(n black) Im really excited about this so shoot me a message if your looking to sell yours or know of a nice deal. My name is Mike and Im in Chesapeake VA.

    Welcome Nitro,
    Take your time looking for one. I looked for a few months before I finally pulled the trigger and it paid off with what I thought was a really great deal. Tundra deals seems to come in waves (at least they did for me), so if you're patient you'll get what you want. I had the best luck and ended up buying from a private party. As someone who did not come from a truck background, I must say that I love my 2010 DC.

    And as a side note, Toyota themselves have been amazing at helping me with the truck. I rolled the dice and purchased a truck with the check engine light on caused by the costly Air Injection System problem. I used this to negotiate a fantastic deal. Even if I had to come out of pocket $4k it still would have been a good deal, but the day after I brought it home I took it right to a dealer and they covered EVERYTHING under warranty. Fixed the injector issue as well as 6 or 7 recalls that hadn't yet been performed. Now I just have to wait for what feels like an eternity for my new wheels, tires, and step bars to come in.

    Good luck with your search!
