    Greetings all, long time Toyota/TRD Fan, JGR NASCAR Fan mostly #18, but like to see any Toyota win races. Currently have 07 Camry and 07 4Runner. Really close to pulling the trigger on a 2016 or 2017 Tundra, can hardly wait but I know it's worth the wait.

    I have pretty much made up my mind on what I would like to have; it is a model 8363, SR5 Cargo Max, 4x4 with SR5 upgrade and off road package, I would also like to have spray in bed liner, rail system. I would like to have the Magnetic Grey color or the new cement color (But I think the cement is only on the Pro this year) I would love to have a Pro but it is very $$$$?? I have been told that I might be able to get a 2017 for just about the same price as a 2016? I'm not really worried about what year it is since I plan to keep the truck for ever!!!!!

    What I would like to know is what would be a rock bottom price I can expect to pay for what I am asking for? Looking forward to any and all input from the forum. THANKS

    welcome from Texas. I spent just under $40,000 out the door on my tundra the only thing I don't have is the rail system but that really doesn't bother me to much.

    I like what Ron has to say, and am getting more & more determined to buy. I have 2 separate dealers (one in Wilmington & one in Raleigh) looking for the same kind of truck. Any advice from the forum with starting a price war?

    Welcome! I also started out driving an 89 Toyota pickup. I miss that old truck. It gave its life protecting me when someone decided to run a stop sign pulling out in front of me. Rolled the poor girl over.
