    Hello,

    just want to introduce myself. I just purchased a Tundra SR5 2017 with the 4,6l motor. I do not need the 5,7l motor as the Tundra will never haul more than a trailer with my Polaris Big boss 6x6.
    This is my third Tundra. I had a 2003 with the 4,7l motor and had it until 2014 when I sold it to get a 2014 Tundra with the 4,6l. I sold the 2014 (14,000kilometers- 8,500 miles) in February 2017. I got maximum price due to the low mileage and purchased the 2017 Tundra. I only use the Tundra from April to November and store it for the winter. We live in Canada and my baby is not exposed to snow, salt and other stuff they spread on our roads. My wife's RAV 4 does the dirty work.

    I am looking forward to all the detailed info I can find on the different forums. I will post pictures in April as I will have the Tundra on April 3.

    Thank you for the warm welcome. Nice to see so many posts within few hours.

    After looking through different forum subjects, I think I may be a boring member. I do not plan to mod the Big Red as much as some of you guys as I like the stock look and I only use it to get to my fishing and hunting remote camp ( 1 hour away from any neighbour). We fish speckled and lake trouts and we hunt moose. But we like the nice ride and the confidence we have in Toyota vehicles as we are Toyota owners since 1978. I know we are not the only ones to appreciate the Tundra as we see Tundra with many american plates in summer coming for memorable fishing trips.
