That's awesome. I'm really starting to lean towards the Toyotas. We bought my wife a new 4runner 2 weeks ago at palmers in Mobile. It was nice and we saved almost 4k compared to the Toyota dealership in Pensacola on the exact same vehicle.

Iffin I didn't need a truck bed, I would get one of these for myself.

I remember when you wanted to launch that truck at the boat ramp with the windows open. Did the D.A.P. tune make up for the flex fuel problems?

And how many of you have the driveshaft "ckunk" when sitting at a stoplight?

Actually, I did the 100k service, plugs, fluids throughout, amsoil, removed the throttle body and cleaned it well, as well as the Mass Air flow sensor, put a K&N filter in it and removed the charcoal filter. Removed the 02 sensors and checked them. When I got it all done I left the battery unhooked over night, never had another issue with it, I also started running premium, may have helped as well.

D.A.P. really impressed me though, sure qish I had done that 200k miles ago, lol what is the driveshaft clunk you are speaking of? My driveline is tight!

The clunk: sometimes when coming to a stop and waiting for the light, there's a clunk/thump like it downshifted or someone lightly bumped you.
Toyota replaced a few driveshafts on some 07s but never admitted there was a issue.
General consensus in the Tundra forums was that it is the driveshaft sliding on the splines of the output shaft and sticking sometimes.

And I see you peeled off the black wrap off the B pillars and pinstripe too! I did the same plus debadged the truck.

08 135K on it.
