My dad has a tundra, jeez I think it might be 8 or 9 yrs old and he LOVES it. never had a problem with it. beefed up air filter thing and dual exhaust. i considered getting one myself before i ended up with the jk. if i ever do end up with a truck, that will be the one.
as far as interiors go... man... as long as it's got a functional a/c button, who cares? i mean, you certainly don't want it falling apart or anything, but it's a TRUCK. all these pretty little trucks with their pretty little nancy boys in ties driving them who don't even know how to put it in 4wd is pretty ghey to me. you want a purty interior, get a girly car.
besides, if she was considering a jeep, it ain't like the interiors in the jeeps are luxurious.
truthfully, i wanted the rescue green SO bad... but there are no 09s in that color. my choice was silver or the sunburst orange. no offense to anyone else, but EVERYONE has a silver jeep so it was not an option. i detest orange, but actually it's growing on me now and I rather like it. besides, i have NEVER seen another sunburst on the road. which makes my philandering that much more difficult but that's another story...
