I was wondering how the first tow went. Glad to hear it is all you dreamed it would be.

The dealer where I bought my Tundra Step Side has offered me a great deal on a new Tundra. He will give me 65% of the MSRP on my truck when it was new, plus $7,000 off the new Tundra I want. My husband, who is working out of town, sincerely believes I won't be able to refuse this. This thread isn't helping my will power.

Juel, check out Edmunds for new and used prices, invoices, etc. Kelley Blue Book has much less information, but worth comparing. I got about 55% of 2002 MSRP for a V8 SR5 with average options for then and scratched paint from using it like a pick up (trees branches while cutting up dead trees are not good for paint). 65% for a 2005 might not be so good. $7,000 of a new one must be a Limited—more room to bargain on those. In Sept., Toyota had $2,500 rebate on SR5's. They add on about $1,600 to invoice for adv. fee, holdbacks, manufacturer to dealer cash; there's a little room for bargaining there, but the dealer won't give up much of that. Considering selling your 2005 privately—better money. I only traded because I got a got price both ways.

Be strong Juel and buy a new one, then post the pix.

Thanks for all of the posts. I drove a new Tundra recently and was shocked at the power and speed. It was terrific. Had concerns about how it might tow... Thanks for the info... We have a 19' Safari.. Shouldn't be any problem at all. We'l keep it in the list of options.

Richard,

You would think that Kevbo..uh, Hemi Dude, would have been ticketed, but right after that incident, I saw him swapping stories with the officer down the road at a cowboy dive bar....typical Kevbo move.

Your new Tundra TV looked great hooked to you AS on the way to the Balloon Fiesta.
