    Hi guys, Just joined, don't have a Tundra yet but I'm looking for one, mostly 2005-2006 V8 4x4

    Found one last night, going back today to finalize numbers.
    2006 AccessCab, v8, silver, gray interior, 89k miles, 4x4, fogs, heated mirrors, sliding rear window, bedliner, tonneau cover, remote starter, $13k which seems to be a very fair price.

    I noticed a leak on the driver side from the small radiator-like thing right behind the grille.
    Also, there's a steering wheel vibration at highway speeds, I'm thinking it's just a tire re-balance needed

    Anyway, hope to have another post soon, showing my new-to-me Tundra :)

    Well, left a deposit. Ended up paying $100 more than I wanted, so I guess overall I'm happy with the deal.

    Here it is, as it sits waiting to go through their shop:

    And a couple of pics of my other ride, a 2013 Mustang with a whiny thing under the hood :) ... 2.3L Whipple :D

    Awesome. Glad you found a truck and snagged it up. The first radiator thing is your AC evap coil. Vibration is prob balance of tires as you mentioned.

    Thanks guys. The dealership still has to put it through their shop. I drove it and put a deal together before they got a chance to do that.

    I think the leak is actually an aux tranny cooler ... this pic was taken through the grille but it does show the leak (bottom-right, right at the connector):

    Finally took it home tonight.
    Felt right at home behind the wheel.
    Absolutely LOVE having a truck again ... like the grin on my face shows :)
