    Good guess. The Air Force insignia kinda helped narrow it down.

    Very nice. The 07 looks pretty decent too. I have an 07 that just clocked 59K. Curious as to the the MFR of the 07's flares?

    That's what I've been looking to get. They look sharp.

    That sounds about right. I paid approx 25K for mine a year ago which was a fair price since it was lifted with nice rims and new Trail Grapplers. It was my 3rd purchase from the same dealer so they were good to me. It's in real good condition. Bet your lovin your new Crew Max.

    I just went over 172,000 miles yesterday. Not selling the truck. Passing it down to my grandson. He loves the truck. Saving for a TRD Pro.

    It goes to show you that both our trucks are what, 8+ years old including Sdtundras' trade in? One of my grand kids will probably end up driving my truck someday. My truck has had no major issues other than a CV boot replaced under warranty in EIGHT years. EIGHT years. You have put over 170K in yours apparently with no major issues either. Warranties are great to have of course and adds value to your truck at trade in with any warranty left on it, especially if you have to have the latest and greatest every three years and peace of mind. I didn't didn't join the Marines for peace of mind and I came with no warranty. IMO there are too many out there worried about voiding the power/drive train warranty and I understand that to a degree. To a degree. Much more so now than years past when build quality wasn't near as reliable. No doubt many will read this and say "Damn right I am worried about voiding my power/drive train warranty". Just proved my point. We are not exactly driving a piece of crap. We own one of the most reliable full size trucks ever built including the Tacoma. In 44 years of driving and modifying engines, axles, diffs, etc, I've never had to take a vehicle in for major repair that was caused by anything I had changed, let alone be worried about voiding something. People will say "repairs are costly" nowadays. I've got news, repairs have always been costly. Not everybody is mechanically inclined and have been going to dealers and repair shops now for 100 years for "costly" repairs. It's a matter of balancing risk and what your plans are with your truck. If you are planning on keeping your truck past the end of your warranty, are you not going to do any power/drive train mods for 3,4,5,6 years or more until power/drive train warranty expires? No locker(s) for three years? Six years??? Are you going to limit what you do to everything but offroad capability (4X4) as in having at least 3 of the 4 axles you have do something at the same time? Get real! I realize that I'm probably in the minority here. I just am not worried about what I am going to do with my truck and I do understand those that do have concerns. Will I want a new one in 5 or 6 years? not likely, but never say never. My two cents. Just my opinion right or wrong.

    You just never know. In the last 20 years, mechanical engineering has improved drastically. We are currently driving better cars now than we did in the 60's and 70's. Back then, if you had a car that lasted 100 thousand miles, you had a good car. Now, if your faithful with regular maintenance on your vehicle, you car/truck can last way over 250 thousand miles easily. As a matter a fact, there was a 1995 Toyota T100 that went over one million miles last year, and the same dealer that sold the truck, exchanged it for a new truck to the owner. The dealer kept the T100 with one million miles and it's in the dealer showroom (good marketing if you ask me).

    Wow, 800 miles a week delivering seafood. Dang. Kinda liked the T100's when they first came out too.
