    I say get the V8. That 4.7 is a good engine. The one in my Tundra has been very trouble-free (knocking on wood). The V8 4Runners are definitely cooler. I remember some car rag tested a V8 4Runner...

    Well, maybe they will correct that with the re-design? Aren't the 2016s supposed to be all-new?

    Is the front differential a well-known weakness of the current generation Tundras? I thought Toyota over-built the pumpkins and suspension on these, at least, in comparison to other half-tons...

    I think you might be on to something with the u joint. Maybe that or the carrier bearing? I'm going to have to check those. I've never replaced any u joints or bearings on this rig. It's over...

    Apparently your annoyance tolerance is far higher than mine. Having to listen to those and look over and around them every time I wanted to drive somewhere would drive me insane.

    Well, the squeaking seems to have gone away on its own. I never did figure out what it was. Thanks for all of the suggestions. I guess the only reasonable thing to do at this point is buy a new 2014...

    Would the brakes squeak even when not being applied? Based on the noise, I think it could be the brakes, or a bearing of some kind... It is intermittent, but it sounds like a rubbing of some kind,...

    One of your original questions was if you would get better mpg with them. If you are running the factory 245/75R16s, there is no way you will get better mileage with 235/85R16s. Although they will...

    Squeaky '03 Tundra, Any Ideas

    I took my 2003 Tundra into the Black Hills exploring last weekend, nothing hardcore, but lots of dirt roads with a little mud. Shortly after I've noticed, off and on, a squeaking or rubbing sound...

    My labor costs came to about $500.00. But, it's done, and everything under the front cover is new. I'll probably never sell this rig at this point. Depreciation has eaten it to the point it's worth...

    2003 Tundra Timing Belt Replacement

    I was quoted $900.00 to do the timing belt and everything else under the front cover for my 2003 Tundra. Does this sound reasonable? I'm at 109000 for mileage and want to get it done. The shop is...

    Here's the one that gets used and gets dirty. It's pretty simple really, just some iron sights and a light. A couple of spare batteries fit inside the pistol grip.

    Nice Tundra. My '03 has been pretty good to me (knock on wood). That water tank is a good idea. Does it pressurize enough to push water uphill (i.e. would it still work if it weren't up high on your...

    I'd definitely say you made the right choice. I think the '06 is a more versatile hunting round. But I would not buy an '06 if I were already set up with another .308 rifle and ammo like you are.
