Wouldn't think Utah would be bad for rust, but I don't really know.

I'm thinking more like 1,550.
Google says 1,555.
Still a 1/2 ton, but a 1/2 ton with 10,400# towing capacity, albeit by the time you add tongue weight, passengers and fuel you are there.
The truck doesn't seem to know or care. The truck seems to like it.
I wouldn't sweat the 155,000 miles part, either.

From my door sticker:
The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed 655kg or 1455lbs.
The 100# difference in my door sticker and Google's 1555lbs. may be the Limited package and/or the 20" wheels/tires.
With trailer tongue weight, 2 occupants, and fuel we are all the way there.
GVW is 7000#.
I don't know curb weight.
I don't remember the GWAR FRT or GAWR RR numbers, but I do remember the axle weight ratings added together are larger than the GVW.

I have a 2wd 2008 Tundra, 5.7L, SR5, double cab, tow package, tow mirrors. I bought this truck new in 2008 and it has been a great truck. I use it only when I need a truck to carry stuff and to tow my 1966 Tradewind and 1995 34'. The truck still seems new to me and I can't imagine replacing it.

I have always believed that if you drive a new or fairly new vehicle that the minimum depreciation would be about $2,000 to $3,000 per year. Now I got a great deal on my 08 Tundra. I paid only $25,000 for a brand new truck. I checked the retail value of my low mileage Tundra and it is still worth $17,000. This means in 8 years that the depreciation has only been $1,000 per year. Looks like I was wrong about my minimum depreciation number.

Here in Mississippi rust is not an issue.
The underside of my 1999 looks as new.
Rust is a maintenance issue. All the brands rust pretty good if not kept up and that doesn't mean spraying water on the underbody at the car wash.

That's pretty good resale value. I've had several toyotas over the years. I've always come out ok on resale. Very little done mechanically except regular maintenance. I know when I was looking for mine a few years ago, finding a used one set up the way I wanted, wasn't easy. I don't think used Tundras set on the lots for very long.

I paid $30,000 for my Tundra.
It is fully loaded and extremely low miles.
I just checked Kelley Blue Book value- $20,000-$24,000.
Basically $1,000 per year or less depreciation.
I get mailers from Toyota offering me $14,000 on trade. I think they are assuming the truck has like 80,000 miles based on average mileage per year. So depreciation would be more like $1600 per year given that value. Still not bad. No plans to sell or trade.

Dealers won't hand you blue book value in cash. It's a retail value only. You will get wholesale. If you sell privately, buyers will look up wholesale and bargain down to it. Unless you have a nice high end diesel, there are a million of them out there for sale.

Not entirely true.
Used Tundras are pretty rare.

Millions of used Tundras? I don't think so. Not that many used Tacomas sitting around either.
More and more used diesel pickups out there. Lots of the "not so good" ones from a few years ago. Dealers won't even take a used F250 6.0 in on a trade. Nobody wants them.

Great combo.

We use an equalizer and experience no sway. Great truck with plenty of room, and plenty of power.

I have the truck as my daily driver, and get about 15 around town (not towing). We got about 12-13 mpg towing to Yellowstone and back this summer.

I think you will be happy with that combination.
I didn't think you could get a 2014 with a full (regular) bed. All trucks I saw offered were the same length. Regular cab - 8 foot bed; Double cab - 6.5 foot bed; Crew cab- 5.5 foot bed.

Were you able to special order?

2012 Tundra 5.7 base/work truck (no chrome or carpet/no fancy gizmos) with tow package and OEM tow mirrors. I installed Firestone air bags while I had my previous camper as it had significant squat even with a WD hitch.

Tows seemingly effortlessly our 25 Int'l with wife, dog and stuff loaded. There is an aftermarket 45 gallon fuel tank that can be added but not sure if its worth the cost. Some people go with a cold air intake mod to boost HP and fuel mileage https://www.tundras.com/threads/cold-air-intake.2055/

The guys in the oil change pit hate the skid plate.

That truck should be well able to handle a heavy load, a REALLY heavy load! Many of the base/work Tundras have payload over 2,000 lbs. outclassing many other base/work 150 and 1500, and even some 250 and 2500 models.

At worst, you will see minor squat, which should be easily remedied with a well adjusted WD hitch. If your WD hitch was set up wrong, and/or your bed is full of firewood, generators, motorcycles, sandbags, coal, gravel, bricks, wet topsoil,....

You have a much better truck than the one you have described. You might want to troubleshoot your setup to find out why it's not performing flawlessly without airbags.
