The Tundra is perfect for cruising the Big Island; Marcus was in constant communication as we were flying in and met us with everything ready to go at the airport! Awesome people; Awesome truck - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Amber's truck served us well. Took us anywhere we wanted to go with no problem. Amber communicated well and was very nice, even after we returned the truck 1/2 hour late. I would recommend Amber's truck to anyone.
This is a great truck! It is more than capable of handling steep hills and accessing the beaches and mountains of the Big Island. Clearance is better than a foot (I think it's about 18" - the truck looks lifted). The engine is the I-Force 5.7L V8 and has both 4HI and 4LO. Even though it is huge, the Tundra handles well at speed limits and has no problem climbing the hills, or descending steep grades (>40%) without use of the brakes.
Amber and Marcus are wonderful owners to rent from! Communication is great, and they are responsive to phone calls. They didn't rush at all with the process, which was great since I had lots of questions on how to use the truck. They had given us great recommendations for things to do on the island. And Marcus was nice enough to take a trip back to Kona (a long way from where they live on the north side of the island) to return hiking poles that I accidently left in the truck. Amber and Marcus really have the Aloha spirit and were part of making our Big Island trip a memorable one!
I recommend renting the Tundra from Amber, and will definitely do so the next time I'm on the Big Island!
