Hi guys I have been over in the 80 series Forum for a few years now.
Well I just picked up a new to me 2006 Tundra Acc Cab. So I thought I would post up over hear.
I looked for over a year to find a clean low mile example, To qualify for me it had to be Low mi, rust free, 4x4, acc Cab, White or Gray metallic with bucket seats 2005 or 2006 because I wanted the 5 speed. I also wanted something with around a 100k mi.
I know that a big wish list, but I was willing to wait and or travel within the southwestern states to find what I wanted.
Well lo and behold one pop up on Craigslist yesterday just 12 miles from my house, I contacted the owner right a way made arrangements to see that evening when He got off of work.
It checked all the box's I was looking for with a 115k mi. We agreed on a price. I gave he a small deposit as it was past banking hour's and he needed to get it smog-ed. I picked it up this morning.

It also has the Shaky mirror syndrome. I need to start doing some base lining. There no record of the timing belt being done so that needs to be addressed. The tires are rags those well be replaced next week.
Nice truck! Not sure if all shaky mirrors are the same, but my driver's side mirror was shaky at idle and all I had to do was tighten the middle of the 3 torx screws on the bottom. Don't remember what size it was.. 20, 25, 30. If you need to tighten the torx screw closest to the body, you may have to remove the mirror to get to it.

This is a good video on how to do that, if you need to:

Did you try and tighten up your mirror? Mine shakes as well but it’s not the connection to the body, it’s the mirror itself that shakes in the housing.

I just put some lock washers under mine and that fixed the shake! Door sounds so much better when I open and close it now.

Thanks Guys still can’t believe I found such a nice one and I feel like I almost stole it as I payed only $11,500.00
As I was checking it out the guy’s phone was ringing off the hook.
just last week a friend was trying to buy it from me his first offer was 16k
I told him he was wasting his time 😉Cheers
