    Yeah that’s the real reason I’m looking for a new one. Seems smarter in the long run!

    I have the HUGE center console. I've never seen one here in Texas without one (at least not a 3rd Gen) I love it more since i got the organizers for it. I love have it though. I don't think i would be happy with a bench seat unless the middle console was like the 2nd gen where it was back of the middle seat & and the console when folded down.

    Where are you? Maybe look in surrounding areas or the next state over for what you are looking for?

    What year is yourTaco?

    Should go with the quicksand to hide the dust and stay cool. It would look cleaner than the white for sure.

    Waiting on my taco to be sold before I pull Ye trigger. We are probably A few weeks or so out from me getting one.

    Just wanted to get over here and get some advice from y’all before I make the big decision.

    Welcome @Rextinkleton93
    If you want all the bells and whistles you should look into the Platinum / 1794. The seats are much nicer, has heated/cooled seats, memory seats/steering wheel, power folding mirrors, auto climate control and more I’m forgetting. You might be able to find a pre owned one that can fit your budget? Just something to think about. Whatever you do, don’t get anything older than a 2016. That’s when they added the 38gallon tank.

    Good luck on your search! Nice Taco!

    Alright boys, “my” tundra is at the dealer. Price has already been negotiated, just working on some top secrete add ons with thier body shop at the moment. My tacoma will be sold this afternoon, then it’s straight down to Toyota to buy this thing. Probably won’t get to drive home with her today though as I’m going to have them do a spray in bed liner and maybe have all the chrome removed and replaced with color matched pieces.


    Wish me luck!
