    Hey guys newbie here!! Looking at getting me a Tundra, going after 07-up for the tow capacity. Going to try and get the double cab or crew cab, is there anything specific I need to be in the look for?

    This truck is going to be my truck for a loooong time.

    Also are there really certain issues for each model/style? I do have some knowledge in working on trucks but was just curious to see if there's any real issues.

    Welcome! I think 07's had a water pump issue? Or was that the 06?

    Welcome!

    Hey man welcome to the forum.

    I don't know of any problem issues, but there are guys on here that are much more knowledgeable on that.

    Good luck finding the one!

    Welcome. Recently officially joined myself. I have an 07. Have not had the dreaded Air Injection Pump (AIP) issue. Not too common but common enough to be an issue. It is usually one AIP (there are two) that can fail due to condensation. Forgot which one, but always the same one. One will be super clean internally and the other will be the opposite.Usually happens in high humidity areas or wheeling a lot in wet conditions. I believe Toyota has extended the warranty for this issue to 10yrs/100,000. If truck is beyond that and the AIP should fail it can be removed and cleaned up. Not easy but doable. This can affect any 2ndgen tundra that has these pumps. Not sure about 3rd gen. There is a lot of info out there how to address this if it should happen. Pumps are located on front passenger side and are hidden up behind the fender well. If the pump is totally crapped out, there is a similar AIP that GM uses that is considerably cheaper than Toyota 's AIP.

    3rd gens also have the AIP issue, but can be corrected...whichever year you decide on, just run the VIN by the dealer for them to check on.
