I own a 2005 Tundra SR5 Double Cab SR5 4x4 TRD Off Road. This is my 3rd Tundra. By far the best one I have owned. My previous Tundras I have sold myself privately. The new owners of my past Tundras have put a lot of miles on them. Both now are running with close to 200k miles on them. When the new 2007 Tundra Crew Max (finally) comes out around April I will be having one parked in my drivewat.

It is perfectly fine to use 87 octane fuel in your 4.0 V6. Toyota "recommends" 92 if you're towing with your truck or placing heavy loads in the bed. Higher octane gas burns slower and colder than lower octane gas. Not only does this increase HP/Torque (a little) but it also improves fuel economy a tad as well. The only bugger with using higher octane gas frequently is it often times leaves deposits on the intake valves. This is due to it's slower burn rate. That's why most higher octane fuels have additional additives in them to burn cleaner.

Does your Tacoma have aftermarket rotors or are they OEM Toyota parts?

Hello Karen, my name is Teodoro Viera, I'm from Puerto Rico and I have a 2005 Toyota Tundra sr5, 4 door. I serivicing my truck outside the dealer and the check engine light comes on after I do the oil change. I know there is a code through the radio that resets the light. Do you know where I can find that code . The dealer wants me to come in and charge me for that since I'm not using Their service.

Hi I am Richard Just located this site. Not even sure I will find it to know if I get a response to this input. I am an owner of a 2007 double cab 5.7 sr5. Great truck I love it so far. I will be putting it to quite a test . I am installing a 5th wheel hitch to tow a 5th wheel rv. The loads are pretty close to the max for the trucks ratings. Hope it will do the job needed. It will be some time before this is completed as I proceed I will let you know how good or bad a job this truck does. I too am looking forward to the answers. Do you know any one who has tow with a 5th wheel and what there outcome was ? Owned other toyotas in the passed never a disappointment. See YA

Thank you for your reply to my question.. I put the 5th wheel hitch in. A superglide, and towed home my new 5th wheel rv. Pulled very well . so far so good although it was a heavy load for the truck.my payload is a little over weighted by some 500 lbs.will be adding air bags to help level out the truck and take some pressure off the sprins and suspension. I won't get to really test this until this June when I take it up to North Carolina, Where I will spend the summer months.I will keep u posted on this trucks abilities. Thanks again Richard

Yes Ive owned a 93 extended cab sr5 v6 5 speed 4x4.I purchased this pickup from my step son 2001 or 2002.
I live in colorado so my wife and i love camping in the mountains .after I bought the p.u. we purchased a 25 ft gulf stream travel trailer [ i was setting us up to buy a tundra hehehe]anyway the p.u. had 99000 miles on it when i bought it ,and ive towed that trailer over wolf creek pass ,loveland pass and the list goes on,I,ll tell what a few times I had to put the transfer case into low range ,to pull some of these mountains ,but what a view ,I sold the p.u. with 164000 miles on it ,[$4500.00] to friends 17 year old son and he loves It. There is no secret as to why toys jus keep on going an going , This truck was well maintained by the 1st owner ,then my step son and me being the 3rd owner --- I had history maintainance records from the 1st owner and on down to me. I did regular maintance as ,timing belt was replaced at 78000 and then at 15000 miles ,I put a new clutch ,pressure plate flywheel ,t.o bearing at 134000 miles ,the old clutch still had about 10000 left on it ,and the truck is still going ,I used synthetic oil ,since it had a history of syn. use. I used about 1/ 2 quart between changes . Any how you have an excellent p.u. -change all you fluids including differintial ,regularly and i recomend timing belt replacement before you find a cruise controll unit ,your truck will not die !! oh ya i did buy a 2005 tundra ,luv it .
