    Will have to look into that. Do they usually cause issues with the fuel gauge meter not reading properly after installation? Not sure if you have any insight into that.

    I was surprised my $28k Camry didn't have them. I did find OEM ones cheaper from certain dealers and even moreso on Ebay. There you can still get OEM or you can get the knock-offs.

    My dealer had some and gave them to me ... two fronts and one rear! I tried buying the other rear and that didn't work. Then I tried both rears and that didn't work. So I'm going to end up having to buy a whole set anyway!

    re: reposts on different forums... I used to be on Tundrasolutions, I'd been on that one since Jan 2000... with my first one. But when the 3rd gen came out, there wasn't a lot of traffic there... so I moved here...I've looked at a few others, same, mostly 1+2 gen stuff, not much 3rd gen.

    Totally normal. It is the chain that is used to lower the spare tire. Might want to zip tie it tight to the tire. I had a really annoying rattle that I noticed with the rear window down. Took forever to figure out that it was that darn chain rattling.

    Woah! I didn’t even think of that. I’m going to see if that’s the source. It’s not loud at all, but I hear it with the window down. I was convinced for a long time that it was the window itself. Thanks for this. :cheers:

    Weird they started using chains again to hold spares up. Used to be a cable which IMO was way nicer.

    Merry Christmas! (hopefully)

    I just dropped my deposit down to "order" my new 2022 Tundra!

    SR5 Double Cab 4wd 6.5 ft. bed
    TRD Off Road Package
    (coming with the following as well (not wanted but being added at factory/port and didn't blow up my meager budget))
    TRD Convenience Package
    All Weather Mats
    Bed Extender
    Bed Mat

    Lead time given was approximately 14 weeks which puts it right around Thanksgiving/Christmas.

    And I will have to fly to pick it up and drive home ($200 flt vs. $2k to ship) :eek:

    Many thanks to all the great owners and their posts here. This had been a great resource as I have done research for this purchase.

    None. Just bought.
    Just as a note, except the possible exception of the Ford F-150, the Tundra is entirely made in the U.S. For example, Ram may be made in U.S. but Hemi engine is made in Mexico. Even GM isn’t all U.S.. Tundra is American made from what I’ve seen.

    Funny I took pics and was going to post the same spare tire chain question. I'm posting anyway because mine is really low I believe. Also why the heck would they put a Michelin 265/70R18 tire for the spare when I have Faulken 265/60R20 on the truck? Somehow I think if I ever have to use it the i-Force Max is not going to like it and probably shut itself down!

    prob due the fact that the standard size is R18 for the tundra and the upgrades are R20. still the same size as far as the computer is concerned

    Cheaper and that 0.1" won't really matter. Those tires might actually be the same based on the manufacturer's websites. They all vary a little bit.

    So, I'm currently driving my 6th Tundra, which is a 2021 Platinum. I wasn't really a fan of the new look until recently, and I have one ear-marked for me coming next month (SR5 with nearly everything you can add). However, I'm still unsure about the drastic change... Anyone who has made a similar decision to change have any regrets?

    minus the turning radius change I couldn’t be happier to be out of a 19 and into a 22. I have owned so many 2nd gens and put hundreds of thousands of miles on them, but the change was needed and necessary

    Went from a 2015 SR5 DC 2wd to a 2022 SR5 DC 4x4. I’ve had the 2022 since March and the new still hasn’t worn off. It’s such a pleasure to drive. Drove it from Arkansas to Colorado in July. It handled the open road with grace. Got a chance to put it in 4L and it handled a rough, steep road with ease.

    Over 11,000+ miles I’m averaging 19mpg as opposed to ~15-16 in my old truck.

    My only (very slight) reservations: 1) The recalls, which have been handled with ease. 2) My back seat, which isn’t as roomy (but I want the 6.5 bed without driving an overly long train, and it’s usually just my wife and I). 3) I hope this truck proves to be anything close to the ultra-reliable tank that my old one was…

    There are those who will never look back, and there are a few who regret making the jump (usually due to issues that are hopefully soon to be in the past if not already). You can find plenty of both on YouTube. Search 2022 Tundra things I love or things I hate. Lots of info. Judging by your purchase history, it doesn’t seem like it would take much to convince you to jump in, lol.
    I don’t see how they would. Totally new design from the ground up, boxed frame and rear coil suspension included.

    True enough... I took that leap today. $2700 under MSRP, 7yr/100K Platinum warranty, 4yr Toyota Care, and running boards of my choice.

    it depends on the dealer. most that i know require minimum to have carpet floor mats. either way whether its carpet or all weather, that's an added option cost to the customer. saves about $200 if you dont want them and get aftermarket anyway. i would prefer no floor mats and save the $200 for husky's anyway.
