2008 Toyota Tundra - Truck Trend
About my Tundra
We decided on a heart-of-the-market Tundra Double Cab 4x4 Limited with the 5.7-liter V-8 (rated at 381 horses and 401 pound-feet) and the 6.5-foot bed. This model starts at $39,235, but we added a few more options, not the least of which was the heavy-duty cold kit that features a larger cold-cranking-amp battery, HD starter, some extra anti-corrosion protection, and a smart windshield wiper de-icer with timer. This package is a steal at $100. Likewise, we opted for the front and rear mudguards behind each 275/65R18 Bridgestone Dueler H/T for $60, and the heavy-duty interior floormats to deal with all the mud and gunk. However, our most expensive add-on is the DVD/nav system, which also includes a backup camera and 440-watt eight-channel stereo system, complete with a booming subwoofer, all for $1650. For extra insurance, we also opted for the front and rear sonar system that gives us an audible warning when the truck is getting close to a stationary object. All totaled, our long-termer tops out at $42,072.
