I have had several Tundras all with 5.7L. They are awesome trucks but are certainly dated compared to newer offerings from their competing brands. I think that the current 1500’s will hit a nice balance for you if you want newer tech but still appreciate a true V8 and a proven design. The newer models actually remind me of my Tundras in ways just by the way it feels size wise. You’d be pleased making the jump, as I have. Definitely go with the 6.2l!
I just added the ADD W1 catch can to my 6.2l. I’m very pleased with the quality of it, and ease of installation. I put the drain kit on it as well and ran the drain hose down along the frame close to the oil filter so i can drain it without having to take the can apart.
I suppose that could be the case at some dealers. I have managed to buy 2 6.2ls in the last 5 weeks this way though. Both from Salt Lake Valley Chevrolet. There is definitely a shortage though, that is why i had to drive 400 miles to find one.
I'm in southwest Montana, and had to travel to Salt Lake City to find one. The best way to find one is to use the shopping tools on Chevrolet.com. You can put in exactly what you are looking for and it will show you which dealers have what truck. It saves a lot of hours of searching especially if you are after something specific.
Looking at possibly getting some rear axle suspension helpers. I'm curious if anybody has experience with the Timbren helpers? If so, how do they ride? How do they handle under load? I have some experience with the Firestone air bags as well but saw the Timbrens and liked the simplicity of them.
Sweet rig! The first thing I always get is tonneau cover. I just got a Lomax on my truck and have loved it so far. The fit and finish is terrific and its weather tight. It is a tri-fold and can be completely removed in seconds.
