I just picked up my new tow vehicle today. Significant upgrade from what I have been using, 05 Sport Trac and 02 Tacoma. I got myself a 2008 Toyata Tundra double cab with the 5.7 V8. Should even match the boat, which I intended to do.

No new picture with the new truck and boat together yet as the boat has already been put away for the year.

Let's see that new rig pic the first day you thaw out the boat, OK?

with a crappy cell phone pic, colors look off but they're not. I always wanted a matching style rig.

Nice you're going to love the tundra and it will tow that outback with ease. Put some bilstein 5100's on it to level it out.

Tundrasolutions.com as well, great resource and forum.

I guess this is now a "show off your Tundra" thread :)

Here is mine after a 3/1.5 leveling kit and 20" Monsters:

I'll have to post mine up tomorrow then. No wheels yet but I have a 3/1 and am planning on getting a set of 20'' chrome Recoils with 34s. I'd also like to dump the 3/1 and go 6 inch suspension...boss lady doesn't like that idea too much...oh well, that's why she has her car!

Lol, my next move is a 4 inch lift with 33's but have not decided on what wheels. I know I am going with the trail grapplers though. A tundra just doesn't look good without a set of aftermarket shoes. (especially mine)
