Hope this is the right place to ask these questions.
I’m searching for some information regarding Tundras. More specifically 1st Generation (2000-2006)Tunrdas. I am thinking about accepting a new job that will offer a monthly truck allowance. I need a larger bed with more cargo hauling capacity and more towing capacity than my dbl cab Tacoma. I’ve looked around at a few Tundra forums but I’m mostly finding things like window tint percentages and tips for blacking out your tail lights.
How many miles are “too many” miles for the 4.7lt. V8?
What, if any, are the weak points in the 1st gen. Tundras? I’ve heard of frame rust recalls.
What major service items need to be addressed and at what mileage intervals?
What kind of real world miles per gallon can I expect out of the 4.7 with 150-200,000 miles on the motor?
Finally, what are the good Tundra forums that discuss more than chrome chain-link license plate frames?
