Nothing says spring like gardening. Fresh cut grass, new landscaping ideas and of course digging up lots of dirt! With that in mind, my fiancée and I set out on a journey for trees and shrubs last weekend. Owning only a small car and an SUV, we quickly realized we would not have enough room to pick up all of the plants we were after.
Trees, shrubs and everything else we could find
A brilliant idea comes to my head and we head down to work to grab a truck for hire. We head down to the Toyota dealership and get the Tundra all gassed up. We head toMenards and began our search. Thirty minutes later we were loaded up with two 8 foot trees and about 6 shrubs but we didn’t stop there. After unloading everything (in the rain mind you), we headed back and grabbed about 15 bags of rocks and 5 bags of sand. A lot of two of us to load but we managed to get it all done within an hour.
Now that the fun part of my story is over, let’s get down to the basics of why the Tundra truly is a great truck. The 2011 Tundra comes in many different trim levels ranging from a standard bed regular cab to the ever popular limited crew cab. Depending on the size of cab and bed you are looking for, the Tundra can pretty much meet the needs of almost every driver.
