    Has anyone actually signed up for this service? I saw somewhere that the service manuals could be purchased for the Tundra. (they were not cheep)..... Wonder which way to go. P.S. My truck is bran new... so I don't anticipate doing much to it. -- grin --
    Well the short list is back-up camera, brake controler, K&N filter (or some sort of improved breathing mechanism, front and possibly rear. [lobbed that one up]). Finally I plan on giving my new truck its first wash this weekend... and I will post some pic's and update my profile. (as I find myself @ this website daily now , to be honest I did not expect to feel this way about my Radient Red beast. "Big-Red")

    I was able to buy an "unauthorized" repair service manual for my Subaru on eBay. I bought it for less then $15 and it was on a homemade CD. I guess the guy paid the $500 for the manuals which come with a CD backup and decided to recoup his money by selling copies.

    I fully support the unauthorized selling of copies of the backup CD because there is absolutely no reason why Subaru or any other manufacturer should make the price of the manuals $500 and then turn around and restrict independent third party service manual writers wait five years after a particular model is released before they can publish a service manual. I need the service manual now not five years from now. In fact it should be provided with the car, but that might cut down on the number of people that bring their truck or car in for service.

    I just looked on eBay and there is nothing for the 2008. However the 2004-2006 Tundra is covered. Maybe the 2008 manual will surface soon.

    I think the Toyota site sucks. Nissan has one were you can download as many manuals in pdf format with a 24 hour subscription. Trying to find something in TIS is a pain. I wish someone had all of the manual for a 2008 Tundra in PDF format. I would be willing to donate for a copy of it on CD,

    Hello MissleTech,

    I agree TIS is a mess and given its structured its like looking for a needle in a haystack. I maintain a membership for my vehicles at AllDataDIY. For 26.95/year I have access to all of the Tundra's technical diagrams, repair information, electrical schematics, TSBs/Recall notices etc. It is copyrighted so I cannot post their PDFs here. For 27 bucks its not bad if you have some DIYs in the works.

    Does the AllData info contain all the torque specs, electrical diagrams, parts lists etc? All I have to compare it to would be my Jeep Factory Service Manuals, which includes troubleshooting, teardown, rebuild, torque settings, diagrams blah blah on every system there is. A set of those for the Tundra and I'd feel complete.
