This is a nice piece. Also installed Bilstein 6120/5160 and coachbuilder shackle on mine. I have and do haul around 1700 or so pounds in my doublecab.

4Runner has the same silly filter. Mine was not hard to do the first time, but it does take longer, and there is no good reason for the design.
Well maybe more guys get pissed and just take it to the dealer, that is the reason.

At least your's is steel. Mine's plastic. But, the Highlander wasn't intended for much off road stuff.

for me......its only an annual chore at 9-10K miles

might feel better changing filter at 5K though

Hey Cheesy - I didn’t know you got one, Congrats - **. This is the last year of the Tundra as we know it they are changing up big time for 2021.


The oil filter change is half the reason I made the change to the TRD plate (It has the access hole in it)... the rest is the cheapo skip (actually scrape, not good for much more) plate that it comes with.

Thank you.

I just traded my 13 Tundra Crewmax in for a 3/4 ton PICKUP because at 6 MPH and a 22 gallon usable gas tank pulling my toyhauler, I had to know where every gas station was. But I really liked my Tundra, can't say anything bad about it other than the fuel consumption and size of fuel tank.

Bought a crewmax last fall. One of the reasons I went with Toyota was the 'old design'. The truck forums and facebook forums are filled with guys bashing them for being old. Out of date. No technology like the Big 3. That is exactly why I bought mine. Tried and true. Parts availability. Salvage availability. Aftermarket availability.

Congrats on your new truck, Spot. My '16 Tundra has been great. Aiming for another 10-15 years out of it.

Personally, I like the Toyota filter setup. Especially after getting the tool to drain the housing before unscrewing it. Motivx? Also, a Fumoto valve is a Gamechanger for the big old 5.7. Pair those with the TRD skidplates and you're set for no mess oil & filter in 10 mins.

Nice trucks just can't put a snow plow on them with the avoidance system behind the Toyota emblem in the center of the grill.

The one on the Highlander can be turned off with a dash button as it can't be used with a trailer either. I don't know about the Tundra.

Small tanks and half-ton towing suck. When you fill up somewhere in SD and are looking at the gps for the next gas station before you pull out, you know you are in trouble. But 1/2 tons ride nice and are better than driving a car, plus they do most non-HD outdoors activities fairly well. At least you can sleep in a 6.5’ bed as opposed to the stupid sub 6 foot beds that seem so popular.

My old Tundra had the small tank, and that was one of my biggest gripes. Worse I hate to run below a 1/4 tank, so I was at the gas station twice a week. I drive 25K a year, so tank size was a big deal. Larger tanks come as part of an option package.

The Tundra's biggest market is suburbia. Their capability isn't used as they're bought for grocery and golf club haulers. They don't need the big gas tank or some of the stuff that outdoorsmen or working men consider essential. They've never made a 3/4 ton or a big diesel just for that reason. Their prime clientele wouldn't buy those options.

My 2020 Tundra has a 38 gallon tank. Not sure if that is standard or not. Fuel light comes on and it takes 32 gallons to fill it up.

Well my Chevy Duramax has a 6&1/2 ft bed that I haul a 1500 pound camper in and pull a 3 horse slant with 2 mules, hay,water, all elk hunting gear and total weight is right at 17,000. I'd say it qualifies as a truck. I sold my 22 ft flat bed tri axle gooseneck today which I hauled 15 3x3's this week, but still have a 14 ft dump trailer to haul stuff in.
.
My last truck a 98 Dodge also had a 6. 5 bed in it and I never lacked for hauling capabilities either
These 6.5 beds are pretty handy when towing a 20-22 ft gooseneck getting into places and turning around.Got to watch though ,Dodge cut their short bed down to 6'-3"

Toyota doesn't make a heavy duty truck though of course.

My comment was totally in agreement of not being 'heavy-duty' enough to deserve of the word 'truck' being typed in all caps. All lowercase letters would be more like it......

The smaller tank is ~26 gallons, and the light comes on with ~6 gallons left.

That's my next truck...same color but non-TRD.
I'm hoping a few of my stock investments pay for it, time will tell.

I’d say RAM’s were trucks if they didn’t rust out so bad, and have major issues with their fuel pumps smile

The Tundra isn’t a heavy duty beast, but doesn’t break down, and has plenty of power... but I’ll give you the fact the axles could be heavier... I grew up with Fords on the Farm... back then I only classified the Power wagon’s as worth a second look.
