Old man wants to buy a newer Tundra and when I say newer...

He wants to get the newer body style which of course started in 07.

Last night I took the parents out to dinner. My dad was yapping about getting a newer tundra. My mom on the other hand(being all frugal with her money)said you should get the older body style so we don't have another car payment.

So my dad wants to know what year was best. He knows that he wants to get the newer body style and he also wants extra cab instead of double cab, thoughts please?

The newer ones have things like A-TRAC and the I pod plug in the stereos, the OFF-Road additions have the locking differentials, IDK, can't really go wrong with any year with these, I would just saw to make sure the truck was well maintained

I thought you had a newer tundra. There was a pic in your build thread with your tacoma on a trailer and a tundra pulling the trailer.
