    Hello everyone,

    Just purchased a 2016 Tundra SR5 DC 5.7L 4x2. I traded in my 2017 Tacoma SR 4cyl I had for exactly 9 days on it, lol. Definitely more of a full size truck person.

    This is my first truck (well second if you count the Taco) since I was 16 and had a 1995 Dodge Dakota. That truck made me swear off pick ups all together for the last 20 years, have been driving sport coupes since ( traded in my 2015 BRZ on this).

    Anywho, looking forward to picking some veteran Tundra owners brains should I not find my answers in all these posts.

    Kyle

    You aren't kidding. At first I didnt think I needed a full size truck or even a V6. Funny thing is the one main reason I looked at the Tundra is my wife had to drive the Tacoma the other day and was totally put off that it didnt have seat height adjustments (no Tacomas do apparently). So she demanded we look at Tundras (after also picking up our 2017 Subaru Forester XT turbo the same night).

    Haha and sadly that's probably where it would all go to.
