    I’ve not thought the detuned engine was that big of a deal. It still has more HP and more torque than a top of the line 2010 F150 5.4L.

    But what I don’t understand is the diminished towing capacity.

    A 2010 F150 with less HP and Torque and a relatively similar GWVR can still tow 11,000lbs. Why is an SR5 rated at 10,000+ but an SR is at 8,300 when given the screenshot above the *only* difference is trim and power - neither of which appear to matter given the identical frame, axle, transmission, etc.

    And if power does matter - does that mean a tune to equal SR5 power would mean an increase in the tow rating to match? At that point there is no difference whatsoever except some paint on the A pillar.

    I think that’s the big question for anyone needing to tow, so is it a cooling issue? Different axles? Tune only? I’m surprised Toyota hasn’t answered that somewhere, makes no sense. Cooling or tune and it’s an easy(ish) fix, even adding a large tank once more parts are available in a year or two isn’t necessarily a deal breaker bc someone might develop an even bigger aftermarket tank than the 32. I did the larger tank mod in my 2013 and it wasn’t that difficult, I’d imagine it’s similar here.

    Man, I'd keep those silver steel wheels, way better looking than any black painted alloy wheels. Nowadays I think steel wheels on a new truck is more unique than it used to be....

    $41k? Absolute steal. The only things I'd consider changing/modifying on that truck would be the bigger fuel tank and unlock the hidden power in that V6TT. Maybe a JB4 would suffice......

    Small thing, but I just noticed SR’s don’t come with the “Tundra” badging. Not a big deal, but not gonna lie, I wish it was there. I’ve already posted my Tundie in another thread, so I’ll wait to post after getting my wheels installed tomorrow. I’ll post a before and after.

    SRs don’t have TUNDRA on the driver and passenger doors.

    They also don’t have trim level on the back doors.

    nice. Where’d you get the black tundra logo? I don’t have one yet and debating. Mine is silver with silver wheels but your black white theme is HOT.
    I’d be so mad if I saw that truck and knew I paid $10k more for it to say SR5 lol

    The tailgate inserts were one of the extras the dealership added. The official Toyota parts website has them for $75.

    I’m glad they added it, because it would otherwise be practically badge-less. The driver side needs something on it so it doesn’t look so bare haha. Thanks for the love! :thumbsup:

    This was my thought as well. Otherwise, the only possible reason is because they are trying to upsell the higher trims. A 355hp/383 ft-lb Silverado 5.3L can tow 11000+ lbs and the 250hp Powerstroke F150 was 12000 lbs, so its not a power issue.

    Power is not usually the issue towing to the J2807 standard. They only have to climb the hill at maximum load without dropping below 40mph(or maybe its 45) I believe, which doesn't require THAT much power.

    I know some like the stock SR wheels (and by some, I mean about 5 people on the planet :rofl:) but those black wheels (Limited TRD Offroad?) look soooo much better. Add in some more color matched white bits; grill, door handles, mirrors, tailgate upper, rear bumper and you've got a really slick looking truck.

    Thank you sir! Yeah, I want to white out the mustache so the black grill is more pronounced. That’s likely my next modification. And yep! Those are the Limited TRD offroad wheels.

    Truck looks Great! Still waiting on mine.

    I just bought the stock wheels and tires from a ‘22 TRD Sport owner. The tire pressure sensors weren’t included, did you use the TMPS from your old wheels and where did you take it to have it done? I’ve never changed wheels on a vehicle before. TIA

    Thanks aeroo! I also had never done it. I took it to a local discount tire. They were able to swap the TPMS from the steel wheels to my new wheels. I got my wheels from a limited owner about a week before getting the truck. My wife hated the idea of changing the wheels, felt it was unnecessary, right up until she saw the finished product lol. Now she’s constantly bringing it up, in a good way. Impressing my wife with a truck modification was not something I expected to happen 2022. It’s unhealthy how much I love looking at this truck :D

    hey guys .... finally sold my 2017 SR5 that we bought brand new ... and now getting a new SR crew max 2wd !! we happen to live in FL now so I definitely could care less about 4x4. We were going to get a SR5, but man its about $7000 more and the added stuff really just didnt make sense after thinking about it. Base model it is.

    So I know from research that the trailer hitch & wiring are not standard on the base SR and they can be optioned for about $400 or so. Well our truck is already in production it seems like or the build date is like 3 days from now. So I dont think that can be added to the build at this point. I have installed plenty of trailer hitches over the years .. but what about the factory wiring? Can I buy the stock wiring harness & plugs, etc? Im assuming there is a quickie way to connect it in the rear of the truck?

    also ... I know the motor is detuned or whatever. dont really care. BUT i would like to know for certain if the cooling is any different? like trans cooler, etc?

    So is it just the SR that has the detuned engine or is it the SR5 as well?

    I have an SR 4x4 Double Cab. It was optioned with 'Towing Hitch Receiver and 7-Pin Connector'. Things you don't get are as others mentioned, the smaller screen, no brake controller, no tailgate release button on the drivers side tail light and others. None of this was a big deal to me. The thinks I wish I had are adjustable lumber with heated seats(helps with my back issues), CrewCab(Double is not usable for adults) and vanity mirrors on the sunvisors(the wife hates these are missing).

    Thanks SkywalkingKenobi for the great info! I was surprised my Wife was totally on board and we even drove a total of 500 miles round trip to pick them up. They were filthy but cleaned up beautifully. Paid $700 for the set.

    Just the SR. SR5 and above are full power.

    I live at 5900 power robbing feet so I felt I had to get the SR5, although the turbos help mitigate the thin air somewhat.

    Hell yea those are sweet. We just put a deposit on an SR that has a Monday build date. Should take about 30 days to receive the truck the dealer said. Pretty pumped. Had a 2017 sr5 and loved it. But couldn’t pass up on the price of an end of year 22 base model SR.

    In Florida you probably will never miss the hp.

    I waxed these wheels and what a pain in the butt that was. An hour each with a headlamp and chopstick getting all the wax out of every nook and cranny The steel wheels on the SR look like a breeze to clean!

    im assuming the used wheels you bought are the same size/height wheels as stock SR ? If not, wont that require some sort of re-calibration of the gauges for speed and mileage etc? Im going to start looking for some wheels now. Are those stock ones from the TRD i guess?

    OR ..... I guess I could just powder coat the stock rims black and move on with my life! The color of the truck is that dark grey color. Wasn't my first choice but that's what Toyota allocated to the dealer

    Those wheels are legit aeroo and you got the set for a steal! Very nice! I’ll probably never know, but I’m curious how significant the HP difference feels. For me, the SR feels plenty powerful and gives me that thrill when I decide to put a little extra “big toe” on the gas lol. Can’t wait to see pics of y’all’s SR’s when y’all get them!

    Repsolracer22, I had stock steel wheels, which are 18’s? And I got the 20” Trd wheels put on. No lift or anything needed since those are 22 Tundra wheels. No re-calibration or adjustment needed.
