The kids with keys to the new truck.
It was finally time to buy a new truck. After exhaustive research I decided on a 2016 Toyota Tundra 5.7L CrewMax 4x4.
The last time I owned a truck was around 1992 when I was in the Air Force.
After visiting dealers for a few days, looking at everything we decided we needed certain things in a truck.
1. I needed more legroom than a double cab would offer. Montana is already tall, and Eddie will be as well. Since I don’t buy cars that often I have to plan for the future.
2. I need a 4x4 since we drive on the beach often and plan on visiting the mountains soon.
3. It needed decent tow capabilities. Although were not in the market for a trailer now, I didn’t want to be limited on what it could pull. Fifth wheels were not in consideration, so there was no need for a larger truck.
4. I also wanted a navigation system.
