    Guys! I am very happy to let you all know I am back in the saddle of a 17 TRD PRO. I sold my 16 TRD PRO last spring to get into a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, and let me tell you that was the worst mistake ever! The transmission failed on me after 33 miles on the odometer and Jeep refused to fixed it!

    Long story but I am back and regret ever selling to begin with.

    Hope all is well!!!

    33 miles!? oh good lord.

    I would have drove it through the dealership glass. And I'm not kidding.

    Does SRT stand for "Shoulda Retained Tundra"?

    Yes so I originally cancelled the SRT, went to Heiser Toyota where they didn't honor my trade in so I went back to the SRT. Tried it, hated it and back to a white TRD PRO I can build out.

    I will post story about the SRT troubles a little later.

    I will say from here on out I won't buy anything other than TRD PROs. That's a fact!

    Thanks for the explanation, to @Sean266 as well. I remembered reading about that Pro and the $49k price tag but that was long before I joined the site. I'm a noob here...

    I have a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Larado 4X4 now and might be trading it in tomorrow for a Cement TRD Pro. Had the Jeep for 4 years and haven't had any probs just want something new and more reliable. Feel that the Jeep is on it's way down hill.

    Dodge and Jeep products are absolute junk. I'd be very hard pressed to ever own one. They look good but you pay a price for it.

    The PRO's are nice. I continue to get thumbs up and spontaneous conversations from guys who drive Fords, Ram and GMC trucks. Not unusual to have someone in traffic motion me to roll down my window or when I stop to get gas. Always paying a friendly compliment.

    I don't know if this happens to the other Tundra trim levels but it's nice to know others like it enough to go out of their way to comment.

    or have somebody walk up to your truck while you're pumping gas and just randomly starts complimenting the truck which scares the crap out of you bc you never saw them walk up...yeah, it happens

    Your Jeep issue doesn't make sense. Why would they refuse warranty?

    Here is a quick rundown of the personalities of this forum:
    Sean flashes his mod power as much as he can because he is super scrawny in real life.
    Law is our token asshole.
    Jberry is the guy you want to go to if you need some sympathy

    You're lucky. My wife's 2007 was horrible and I got rid if it the 2nd time it about left her and our kids stranded. Put her in a brand new Highlander instead.
    There was a recall from Chrysler that was on national backorder for months! The Jeep was great, but when it reached 100k- problems started to kick in.
