You are in the Toyota Tundra
What is this discussion about?

So let me get this straight - you are potentially filing a claim under lemon law against the Tundra, but if there were no problems such as those you noticed that required engine replacement at 20K miles, it would be the best running truck you ever owned?
In other words, other than having to consider lemon law, your Tundra is a great running truck? Congratulations on being a loyal Toyota owner!

Just how excessive was your noise? I have this same noise and have been convinced it is normal and have heard it in every 5.7 I've been exposed to. Would your noise go away after 5 minutes? So is Toyota saying this is not normal noise? How much of this is the dealership or is this a Toyota rep?

Agreed. If the Toyota rep is able to establish that all the Tundras exhibit this noise on start up and that it doesn't affect the longevity of the engine by testimony of Toyota engineers, the arbitrator would have no option as to rule in favor of Toyota. No proof other than it makes noise on startup would be a basis for replacing a truck. Especially if while on the lot other Tundras are started and exhibit the same noise.

my messages started at message 1781 and the engine noise is not the only issue.and by the way the lifte noise never went away. They have put a left front wheel bearing, AV axle, codes on the anti slip and a differential in the truck The new differential striped gears and they had to put another differential in a week later. The codes are a recurring problem that they cannot fix, YET

Has anyone seen the Red Rock interior? What is the "LB21" interior color?

I've had a chance to see the redrock interior on the dark blue exterior and it is nice but, the color is a bit orange. Sand seems better. Just my opinion though.

Seems like I am having the same problem. When I start up my 5.7. I get this slight "knock", but after a few minutes it goes away. I took it to the dealer, they told me they didn't hear anything....looks like I'll be going back!!!

I have a Black CM LTD with the Red Rock. It looks great - Everyone that see's it thinks it looks like something you would find in a luxury vehicle. What's also nice is the fact you get black carpet, which you need in a truck.
