That's funky, man.
Like 9 cans of shaving powder that's funky.
Bring the horns in.
I said bring the horns in, cotton picker.

Payload is not as high as I would like it because hey, it is only a 1/2 ton truck. Overall, considering power, reliability, comfort, rear seat room and performance, I consider it the best truck available. Mine is an 08 2wd double cab with only 78k on it. It has a great motor (5.7L) and a great 6 speed transmission. The drivetrain is the same as the 2016 model. I get 13-14 towing gently and 18-20 solo. I love my Tundra and hope to put at least 300k on it.

Ditto for my '07 CrewMax Limited with 54,000 miles-
I'm going for a million-
My mileage isn't that good-
15 empty and 13 max towing-
The 15 was on a 70 mph interstate highway.
I'm sure I would get a little better on a 55 or 65 mph road, but I haven't calculated fuel economy on a slower road.
I know fuel economy pulling the trailer is better at 60-65.
It gets worse at 70 and it gets worse at 50- Natchez Trace Parkway speed limit-

Going for a million miles is a great idea! But keep in mind it may require some repairs. You may need and alternator, water pump, or even transmission repairs at 770,000 miles.

When I get a round tuit, I will spend about $1,200-$1,500 on my 1999 Nissan Pathfinder.
When I get new belts and hoses, I will replace the head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, timing belt and water pump, too.
Then it should be good for the next 18 years/120,000 miles...
I might get a set of tires next year...
It's cheaper to keep her...
$39 tag and $18 per month insurance...
For the price of 1 single car payment I have kept her going for a couple of years...

I enjoyed the million mile video. First gas pickup I had ever seen do that. We had a local package delivery service guy that had 900,000 on his chevy van with never rebuilt 5.7 but something happened and it never made it. He was also an Amsoil guy and was working on them to buy it.

I contract with one of the companies that delivers new AS from JC to dealerships around the country. Most of the companies have had a few over the years that turned a million miles. I have seen Cummins, Ford 7.3s, and later Duramaxes all make it. Like the Toyota they got proper maintenance and all needed a little love along the way.

Toyota definitely has the best reputation for having the longest lasting gassers. Flip side to that is they are always at the bottom with fuel economy. 10 mpg towing an AS isn't the most profitable route. Naturally for most end users that don't tow TT that much or put crazy miles on them just having something that they know will start and run when called upon for years and years is worth a lot.

Toyota has been making diesel engines for decades. Makes you wonder how many million miles you could drive a Toyota diesel. The driver of the million mile Tundra was a fairly big guy, but the interior looked pretty fresh for that many hours on the road.

If only Toyota would make diesels available on this side of the pond. If only,...

...and the driver's only quality complaint was that the little tab that holds the sun visor wasn't as tight as it once was...
Y'all can't see me!

No timing belt on the 5.7 It has a timing chain, no need to replace.

We were talking about the 4.7 million mile Tundra in the video.
Not sure the 5.7 will last as long as the 4.7, but I'm sure it will last a long time.

4.7L was the largest Toyota truck engine before 2007. That year the 5.7 was introduced in the Tundra. In 2008 it was made available in the Sequoia, Land Cruiser, and Lexus LX.

Most of the Toyota trucks with the 4.7L or the newer 4.6L, like the Lexus GX, are rated to tow about 6500 lbs. Some of the 5.7L Toyotas tow 10,000 lbs.
