    Hi,
    I'm Ken, I live in Coastal South Georgia. I bought my 2001 Tundra Limited in 2015 with 280,500 miles on her. The guy I bought her from used her for work and hunting/fishing. He kept her running but, as far as appearance, he didn't worry too much about that. She was pretty dirty when I got her (one reason I was able to get her so cheap $2,500). I cleaned her up and made the paint shine as good as I could and got the chrome shining again. Since purchasing her I got ahold of a set of 33's on Hummer rims and mounted those with 3" spacers. Done some other upkeep work... water pump, shocks/struts, front suspension, etc., etc. She has 318,300 miles on her now and still running good. Next on the list is a little body work and a new paint job. The wife asked if I was going to sell it and I said, "how can I, she'll be a classic next year" ha, ha, ha. I almost sold her a week ago... she quit on me (The Tundra; ha) about 5 months ago and I've been troubleshooting off and on, replacing parts each time I thought I had "figured out" what was wrong. Man was that expensive; I replaced the starter, fuel pump, fuel relay, timing belt w/water pump, pulleys, belts... all of that to find out that it was an electrical problem. Got her running now and no plans to get rid of her any time soon.
