After three Tacomas I am a Tundra owner

    Traded my 2014 Tacoma Off Road DCSB for a 2015 Tundra OffRoad CrewMax. Last year when I bought the 14 Taco I had briefly considered a Tundra but never test drove one. Then I had rented a Yukon while on a business trip and loved the overall room and ride. After that I couldn't stop thinking about a Tundra.

    Also, I am making more and more trips with people in the backseat and while the Tacoma worked, for 3 and 4 hour drives I felt bad asking people to sit back there that long.

    So, I went shopping, and now am an owner. I absolutely LOVE the Tundra!!! The room, the power, the ride. Oh....and that power rear window....I friggin love it!!! the WHOLE window! haha

    I debated on the TRD Pro....the dealer I bought from had a white DC, and I wanted white, but I also wanted the CrewMax. But I also liked the idea of getting the Toyota incentives and more negotiating with the non TRD Pro. haha

    Mods... Line-X (was supposed to get factory one but dealer couldn't get one from inventory with it). WeatherTechs front and rear. Well, console organizer if you consider that a mod. lol

    Stereo will be up first. I had a 2002, 2011 and a 2014 and the stereos in the 11 and 14 were horrid as we all know. The Tundra is no different. I just ordered a JBL MS-8 and I still have an Alpine PDX, ID components and RF Punch sub I took out of the Tacoma to go into the Tundra.

    After that will probably be TRD Pro grill.

    When the factory Michelins are due to get replaced I will probably then level the front with suspension lift and go to 33s. I loved the way my Taco looked, I had 2" (OME w/ Bilstein 5100 and AAL) and 265/75 BFG ATs. The stance of my Tundra looks so plain right now but i need to live with it......I'm loving it so much that I can deal with the factory look right now.

    Welcome from VA. Once you test drive a Tundra it's hard to go back to the Taco - that's what happened to me. From the last picture to the first, it looks like your Tacoma grew up

    Welcome and congrats. I was shopping for a Taco also when I just for the heck of it test drove a Tundra. Tundra is an awesome truck.

    Welcome from AZ! I recently upgraded from a Taco as well and as much as I hated trading her in I have never regretted it.
