Thank you for the information. The dealer offered $4000 rebate or $1000 with 0% finance. The sticker price is $28,658 wants $25,328 with 0% finance. He showed me his invoice price and he claimed he wants to sell it without making any profit. May be he gets incentives directly from Toyota.
I have a problem with the Tundra. I made some research and found out that bed bouncing is a big problem with the new Tundra. You can watch few films from several Tundra owners documenting bed bouncing. This is the main reason why I am not going to buy a Tundra at this time. I may get the right price but the bouncing problem is a serious issue when driving on concrete pavements.
I am actually considering 2009 FORD F-150. It may be available by the end of this year.
What do you think?

Thank you for the information.
The MSRP is $28,658 It has very few dealer installed options which is good. I feel the car has all the important options installed. Long bed, strong engine, tow mirrors, bedliner, etc.
They may sell it for 20K.

I have been driving toyota trucks for 15 years. My 08 tundra is not my favorite
(tundra grade 5.7 short bed) but in the long haul, it is far better than ford or chevy.
At 60k those ford and chevys start to turn into junk. That tundra will hold up.
Yes, their is bed bounce, more than the others i'm told. Seems to be issues with tail gates, some 5.7's sound like diesel's (mine does, hate that) but all in all I would be hard pressed to lay down 25-30k on a ford, chevy or dodge. I have also read that a new, better set of tires greatly improves the bed bounce issues. Since toyota factory tires typically suck, their may be some truth to it. The deals on gas guzzling trucks are going to get better before they get worse. Shop around, drive the others, you'll see the difference.

I bought before 5 years a used 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan for $2000, Blue book price was $5000. I got a deal because it had a high mileage (157,000). After 5 years the mileage is over 200000. I had no problems with the engine or the transmission. All of you know that the quality of the F-150 is much better than the Dodge Grand Caravan. Most owners of the new F150 (2005 and after) had very few problems with them. The frame and the suspension system of the late models is much better than the new Tundra. The new 2009 style of the F-150 is more civilized and modern than the Tundra. I am not talking now about Chevy trucks or other Ford cars. I am talking about the F-150! I am convinced after reading a large number of articles, that the F-150 is the best refined truck available. With proper care, I expect F-150 trucks to serve over 200,000 miles with very few problems.
I didn't give up the Tundra yet. I will wait for the Tundra 2009 model or 2010 to see whether Toyota address the problems with bouncing and frame weaknesses or not. However, I think the 2009 F-150 will beat the 2009 Tundra unless Toyota make a dramatic face lift.
I am not really concerned about too much power as long as I have over 320 horses under the hood. I am concerned about longevity, performance, features, durability, style, etc.

I agree with you completly. I will be looking very close at the new f150 and unless toyota steps up to the plate, I may make a change.

If the difference between msrp and the price you got is only 5500.00 I would say not such a great deal....
