2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 CrewMax 5.7L 4WDReview
Appearance:

Overall:

Awesome Fullsize Truck With The Toyota Name To Back It — Great full sized truck with lots of towing/hauling ability. For a 5.7L motor with gobs of power it gets decent gas mileage. I can get 16mpg in my daily commute and averaged 19.1mpg on a 700mile round trip, trip that had a good 90 minutes of driving off highway into the mountains. Got 21.7mpg on the way down (before the mountains) It hauls my Street/Dirt bikes great. I've only towed a small trailer with two dirt bikes on it with mine in the bed. Couldn't even tell it was back there. Ride is good for a 4x4 truck

Pros: Hauls 4 adults in comfort and style
Built in Bluetooth integration w/factory nav
21.7mpg highway on 350mile trip with me and the wife onboard

Cons: 5.5ft bed (6.5 would be nice)
aux input on JBL premium sound has alternator noise (apparently this is not just me either)
Paint could be thicker / stronger and less prone to scratching.

2008 Toyota Tundra Base CrewMax 5.7L 4WDReview

Overall:

Heavy Duty In All The Right Places — My personal favorite trim option is the Crew max. Basically because there is sooo much room back there for me to stretch out and recline the seat if I want to. The bed may be limited in space, but for those things that are long, I figure that is what racks are for. This is no a 1/2 ton truck. With a regular cab you can have a 1 ton payload capacity, if you purchase the Crew Max option you have a 3/4 ton capacity. This truck handles nice on and off road, it has a good field of vision. The finish inside is nice. The center console is design for storing stuff. Those that like the bench seat design for the open leg feel will be disappointed.

Pros: Rugged, Towing capacity,

Cons: Lacks a Bench seat option up front for the double and crewmax trims.
