    I suppose I need to start somewhere. I've had the truck less than 4 weeks now. Day 1 I installed the Westin shopping cart basher. I've added Go Rhino black tube steps. (not pictured, yet)

    On Saturday, I installed the Rough Country 2" lift.

    We used to have a Sienna. My wife loved it. This one is the SE right?

    4 kids is rough. I have 3 so we were able to get away from the minivan life last year after my youngest turned 5. My wife drives the Tundra as a DD. I drive a Durango. Has been pretty good so far (knock on wood) and "drives" a hell of a lot better than the Highlander/Pilot/Traverse 3 rowers out there.

    Sounds like you need a Sequoia...

    I used to own sports sedans (BMW, Audi) and they always had electrical issues. But they were fantastic handling cars. I cannot drive something that lumbers. My compromise is to drive a 3 rower that is still somewhat sporty. Durango ended up being the car after test driving everything. Sequoia feels a lot like the Tundra. I like the Tundra, but I just cannot drive something that big for a DD.
