The tundra has been my daily driver since I purchased it new and has been well taken care of. I'm looking to trade for a moderate to stock like vehicle that has a "real" value in the $18-24K neighborhood. There's nothing wrong with it - I'm just getting up in years and have come to the conclusion that getting into and out of this vehicle several times a day no longer has the appeal that it once did. Slee's School Bus will take me most places where I want to go and for the real ruff stuff, I'll just catch a ride with whoever trades me for the Tundra. I've posted this vehicle on Pirate and Yotatech and have had several offers of "older" but well built rigs, but the monetary difference was to great for them to overcome. Others with good rigs (some vehicles were worth a little money and I was willing to come up with the difference) had to think about it after contacting me and after a little thought decided they probably wouldn't use the Tundra for it's intended build purposes and bowed out, as web-wheeling is a little different than actual wheeling.
In the pictures you'll see the oil pan is modified a bit - hi-steer required the modification. In another picture you can see where the back of the pan was added onto for oil capacity and the pickup tube was modified and moved back a little to prevent the possibility of oil starvation on steep climbs. Prior to the modification it held 8.5 quarts with the BE100 bypass filter- after - it now holds just a tad over 8 quarts using the BE90 bypass filter, so the capacity didn't change much, if at all.

One more time around the block. Lots of lookers, a few responses but nothing serious. I just replaced the starter, as it was acting up once in a while by not turning over on the first turn of the key - I took it apart and brushes looked excellent but the contacts were pitted but not badly - replaced with a rebuilt as long as I had one and I'll just rebuild this one for use on the 01 Sequoia when the need arises. Still mainly looking for a trade but will consider a cash deal as well. If no interest I'll probably see some of you in Moab or elsewhere this spring.
