    howdy. I'm down near Houston and currently drive a 2015 Tacoma, but growing family means more space needed. I'm hoping to get into a 4x2 crewmax here very quickly and enjoy the v8 power and size of a full truck again:benchpress: I love the taco, but at the end of the day it just doesn't have the room needed. I've also noticed that I might as well go new with the insane prices of the used trucks these days. I'll post a pic once I get the truck

    :cheers:the Tundra is 100x better, especially with a family. Def go new...a newer used will cost damn near as much as new. But then again that shows you how well the resale value is!:burnrubber::bananadance::headbang:

    It'll be my first 2wd truck too. I haven't even used 4wd on my taco in the 2+ years of owning it, so I'm switching over. Found a heck of a deal on an SR5 in Houston, so hopefully I'll be in a Tundra <1 week

    Nice! See I'm goofy and went the other way...I had a 2wd SR5 and said to myself hey what if I ever need it, so I went and traded it in on a 4wd 1794. There's a lot of places around Vegas where you can use the 4x4 so I said ehhh why not lol.

    I live about 3 hours from the nearest beach, and I'm driving on the pavement 99.9% of the time. Have driven 4wd trucks for 10 years and used it out of necessity once.

    Mostly if not all private land here so it's no big deal. Either way, the tundras are one badass truck :headbang:

    Knew it was the truck as soon as I saw it. Didn't stop me from drooling all over the TRD Pros they had in stock though :D
