Approach this as two transactions: 1. new truck price. 2. trade-in of 4runner.
You should be buying the Tundra at or under invoice. See Edmunds pricing for the numbers. Take a look at Edmunds and KBB trade-in values for a ballpark of what they should be offering for your 4Runner. Your payoff doesn't matter in putting a value on the vehicles so leave that out of the mix.

Thanks for the reply Green_g8t I will surely look for other prices, I like the 5.7L V8 Crewmax,if i go for 4.6L then I would keep my 4 runner.I wish good luck.

Sorry I forgot to mention the deal was for a 5.7L V8 Crewmax with the TRD Rock Warrior package for $ 36000.
$ 36000 includes my
1.My trade-in: 2005 4.7L V8-4Runner-which has a payoff of $15000.00(dealer told me that he would take care this payment).
2.A down payment of $ 3000.00
3.Monthy payment of $600.00 for 60 months.(0% interest)

Seems a little high if the rock warrior pkg is the only option. Here's where I think the deal should be:
Tunder V8 CM TRD RW package: $34,000 (invoice).
Trade value: $12,500 (this is a guess assuming SR5 4Runner V8 in good cond)
Plus Tax on purchase price: $1,200 (this is a guess, adjust for local tax rates)
Less Downpayment: $3,000
Balance Due: $34,700
Seems like there should be $1,000 on the table unless there are more options on the truck or your trade isn't "average" for what you describe.

At the risk of being the skunk at the garden party, why don't you keep the 2005 for a year or two more? At present you seem to owe more on it than it is worth PLUS in my humble opinion with only 3K down on the new 36K Tundra you will be way upside down on that for a long time.

#1975 of 1986 So you really want to buy a tundra?

I have been the proud owner of 4 Toyotas prior to purchasing my 2007 Tundra Crew Max in August of 2007. This is my last Toyota. Quality is just not there anymore, nor are there any honest dealers to repair them. Here is my list of issues.
--truck runs like crap after recall to adjust computer . Dealer says "Normal"
--Gutless towing my 2700 pound Tent Trailer. Advertised to tow 10,000 with ease (my Tacoma does a better job)
--Poor paint quality. Paint comes off truck with every little bump. Nothing you can rub out or touch up. Repaint the truck or live with the white undercoating showing through
--Radio volume does not work and stations drift off of where set
--Dash vents will not stay in adjusted position, you have a choice of full up or full down. Dealer reluctant to fix due to need to pull the dash. Says Dash will start to rattle when they fix it. Dash already rattles. So Add;
--Excessive dash rattle
--Loud engine noise similar to valve tapping. Dealer Says "normal" even though I have never heard it before, sounds like a diesel from inside the cab
--Tranny shifts hard when cold, You guessed it, the dealer says "normal" Did not happen in the first year of driving the truck
One more thing I should mention, the truck has a whopping 17,000 miles on it. Oh joy, I wonder hat happens when I reach 20,000.
