    I used the DML tire calculator to compare tires. The biggest deference between the stock SR tire and the ones I bought is they are 3/4” wider. The circumference, which would mess up the speedometer among other things, is only 0.16” taller. So as I understand it no re-calibration is needed.

    i notice a bunch of you keep saying LEATHER on you SR... I would bet it is SOFTEX as leather is only on platinum 1794 and capstone...even the limited and trd PROget SOFTEX... fancy vinyl!

    In other news … does anyone know if the SR has the same cooling as the SR5 trim and up? Obviously the engine on the SR is detuned a bit, and the tow ratings are lower too. So didn’t know if there’s more foundational items that made the tow rating lower. Like no trans cooler, or frame, suspension etc are any different to warrant this?

    Very nice-looking truck. The lift makes it look completely different.
    I'm curious about the chrome Grille. Did it come from the factory that way? I thought a Chrome Grille was only available on Platinum models.

    @Big Baker the wheels, chrome front grille, chrome rear bumper panels came from a 1794 edition truck. I also painted the mirrors and rear tailgate trim to match the color or the truck.

    1990...just curious why you didn't just buy a SR5? not judging just trying to figure out what benefit there is to going this route?

    I almost went SR...but ended up with a trd PRO that i did not like so traded for a loaded up SR5 premium/convenience. I love the cleanliness of the SR5

    Because the SR5 was 10k more and really doesn't add anything other than a few cosmetics and features I don't care for. The SR is very well equipped for a base model. I figured I'd pay 39k for the SR and spend 4k on it and have it look simular to the 70k 1794 edition truck. This truck has most everything an sr5 has with exception of cosmetics inside and a few things I wouldn't ever use. I don't know why anyone could justify paying 10k for the few extras the sr5 comes with. The only thing to really consider is the sr is detuned about 40 hp but that is easily changed with a tune.

    Ditto. It’s surprising - my 22 SR has way more features than my 21 SR5 did.

    hmm...not trying to be argumentative (I know this seems so but not intended) I like the idea of simplicity the SR brings actually.

    But, Looking at SR crew max 4wd msrp is $43,225 with tow package. SR5 is $48,300. not sure where you came up with $10k extra?? again I was looking at this very closely. For the extra $5000 you get more power/torque 40hp/75ft, towing package, aluminum wheels, color matched stuff, plus optional equipment available for add on, for me towing matters, if I was just looking for a truck that I only towed light loads with it wouldn't matter. yes, you can tune it but that WILL void your powertrain warranty and doesn't technically up your towing capacity. As did the lift...Toyota is touchy about aftermarket mods.
    We are all different and have different needs. Most people think I'm crazy for not liking the PRO, but both my wife and I disliked it for the same reasons. For me a SR5 with auto level was the right choice. I HATE chrome or fake metal look plastic personally so even the trd offroad SR5 is out.

    I paid 39500 for my sr but it is 2wd. Every sr5 around here stickered around 47-48k. I would have been 50k plus out the door. I wanted a 1794 but but they are near 62-65k. My truck looks very simular to one for 45k. Many people don't understand the tuning part. It cost about 300 bucks to do it and if something fails due to being defective I can simply remove the tune before taking it for warranty work. To me all the plastic makes a truck look cheap. A modest amount of chrome makes a truck look nicer. I think that's why most higher trims come with chrome.

    The ecu can be reflashed with vin programming from an sr5 or higher trim although technically it can be done in hp tuners software as soon as vin credits become available for it. These engines will be great candidates for custom tuning. I'm sure there will be aftermarket waste gates at some point in the near future.

    If a dealership feels it necessary to look into your ECU, and you've preemptively "removed" a tune, what makes you think they won't know you've flashed the ECU previously?

    Most ECUs have non-resettable flash counters. Everytime flash is counted.

    It's why JB4 became so popular once ECUs gained flash counters

    Jb4 has one available now for the 2022 tundra for those concerned with that. I really like the idea of using toyotas factory sr5 tune since the truck is new. I've never had a warranty issue with a toyota vehicle and I never sucker into the extended warranty stuff. You are basically paying for repairs up front. I'm probably 15k ahead in my lifetime on money saved by not getting the warranties. I'll post and let the group know after I retune mine.

    I will likely use another computer out of a wrecked sr5 and program it to truck as soon as the software is updated in my analyzer.

    Good luck with that.

    Is it still that easy in 2022?

    No disrespect but I don't think you know how it works. Everyone knocks the SR because its detuned but to put things into perspective even the SR truck comes with 30 more ft/lbs torque than a 2022 silverado 5.3 which has a 10-11k tow rating. The main thing to note is that warranty or no warranty the truck is physically the same and can be tuned to the same more hp as any other tundra trim level.

    I paid $42k OTD for my 22 4x4 SR DC. It was sitting on the lot with 40 miles on it.

    For the SR5 4x4 with identical colors and features it’s $48.1k delivered plus sales tax and title (figure $51k conservatively)

    Below are the differences between the SR and matched SR5:

    Badges (irrelevant)
    Different grille insert (irrelevant)
    Black A pillars (everyone hates this anyway)
    40hp increase
    Alloy wheels
    Trailer brake controller
    A wait of several months


    I do not see where that is worth $9000. A tune is $700, and a trailer brake controller is like $200 - but that’s only if you want them.

    I, whose youth was passed in the august, unchallenged and tranquil glory of the 300hp F150 era, will take great pleasure in invoking the 340hp thrill of the SR Tundra…

    So, you are saying that you can swap ECUs, easy peasy?

    Because that hasn't been my experience with modern vehicles. Depending on the manufacturer, recent vehicles have become very difficult to ECU or even BCM swap.

    You mentioned for warranty that you could simply remove a tune

    My point is that may be wildly oversimplifying it.
    Unless you have software that can somehow overcome the encryption Toyota is using?

    In typical modern vehicles, the ECU, BCM, guage cluster, keyless modules, door modules, etc. All need to be registered together. Something usually only a dealership has security privileges for.

    That's my question to you, if you feel that you should remove a tune, how do you know they can't see the counters? Are Toyota's still easy to mess with?

    Personally, I don't think a dealership is too likely to look at what tune you have on your ECU, however my point is if they feel like looking, they will know. Even if you go down the path of module swapping.

    I'd personally do JB4 during warranty, then do a SR5 or "stage 1" ECU tune post-warranty.
