    Hey y'all I'm new to the forum and the Tundra. I just bought a 2007 Tundra DC 5.7 4x4. I love it. Is there anything that y'all can tell me to check out, look for or any possible problems I should know about. It has about 155,000 miles on it. Any info would be appreciated. I was just rereading this and I should mention that it has a full exhaust, Bully Dog GTT+, and K&N.

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    good color man...

    First off make sure all recalls if any are open that need to address by the dealer.. Not really too much that goes wrong beside the air injection system( there is a bypass made) on the 5.7 and on some 4.7 engines.. Do a full service do it transmission, engine,transfer case and both pumpkins oil if it hasnt been done and your gold...

    very few problems its american built and engineered.

    Only thing I've really heard about first of the second gen tundras is a leaking water pump.

    I second the water pump.

    Other than what's been listed - I would do sparks plugs, air filter, and a full synthetic oil change.
