Hi - well my husband and i finally think we have a "good deal" but want opinions.....we have found a 11' TRD, 4door, 4wd, long bed, silver - with JBL....we are also adding a roof rack and bull bar in black with stainless skid plate (we like them)....OTD price NOT including our state taxes and tag - 31456? What do you all think?

Seems a little high, not to bad. Where are you in Texas? I know a great dealer in Oklahoma that will give you a great deal, in Enid.

no problem....the warranty seems to cover about anything that will go wrong with the truck for the life of it, we thought it seemed high but the warranty seemed hard to beat and it includes a westin bull bar and toyota roof racks which we really wanted. plus the dealership is 5 minutes from our house!

I would guess it would be around $30k and with warranty it probably adds up. You can call other dealerships and get a quote to see if you can get a lower price, and take it to your dealership and see if they will match it.

Exactly. You may be looking at some deductibles in there that might not make it so appealing.

In my opinion don't put a Bull Bar on it; although they look cool, it's not called a damage multiplier for nothing. If you hit something on (let's say the right side) the whole bar bends and then damages the entire front end! Just my 2 cents. I would look at a good steel front bumper, however.

Good luck! Sounds like a nice truck!

Is that an after market offering the lifetime warranty?my brother drove up from Florida and saw signs for the million miles 20 year warranty.if it's not a Toyota warranty it isn't worth shit. That company could fold up tomorrow and reopen under another name and your beat. Price seems kinda high.

Don't pay a dime extra for a "lifetime warranty not backed by Toyota...It is another "marketing gimmick" I see more and more dealers using. Factory warranty works is hard enough to get for some. I would want to know someone who has used that "warranty" ...Warrantys are offered by Toyota.

Circling back to automotive "lifetime warranties," as an example, it is our opinion that the strength of the underlying companies has yet to be tested. in most cases these are relatively new products from relatively new companies. Their products dovetail the manufacturer's warranty coverage, so, in effect, they don't begin to offer coverage until the original warranty concludes. In many cases that means the "lifetime warranty" isn't on the hook until at least 5 years or 60,000 miles has accumulated on the owner's vehicle.
What's it all mean? Well, it's nice to offer the promise of a Lifetime Warranty, but with the offer coming from an untested company that is years away from entering it's "claims zone," the question is what happens if they fail? Without a lifetime warranty company, do you have a Lifetime Warranty? It's not a factory program, so the factory won't honor the Lifetime Warranty.
Take a close read of those Lifetime Warranties. Who are they from? Many times, the warranty is actually from the dealership. Therefore, if a dealership entity merely changes ownership structure, does that warranty cease?

Some dealerships use a company to administer the warranty - that is, handle the claims. Some of these administrators, or claims handlers, are backed by insurance companies. But, is the warranty itself backed by an insurance company. If so, what documentation do you have?
Sometimes, the selling dealer has no liability, so they won't need to honor the Lifetime Warranty. So even with a nice piece of paper that says "Lifetime Warranty" there's a real possibility that the consumer will end up paying for repairs out of pocket.

Anything less that 31.6K is a good price According to Truecar.com Edmunds says TMV is $13 over invoice $30,583
