My Tundra is in great driving shape, I keep up with the scheduled maintenance. I is a automatic transmission but if needed to tow one shift down and it becomes a manual without the clutch. I have dark tint to keep the sun out and a custom shade made specifically for the Tundra. My truck is great for the outdoors and the beach scene. It does have a tow package on it so towing is an option. My dogs love the Tundra and so will yours. Camping, rock climbing, BBQ or whatever it may be that you need a truck for, this Tundra will comply. There isn't any 4WD so be cautioned!
