    I currently own a 2012 Tacoma Sport, but recently have been thinking of getting a Tundra. Hard to haul when you have narrow 5ft bed, lol. So I figured I'd do my homework and check the forum out.

    Welcome to the forum from Western PA. Post up some pictures of your Tacoma when you get a chance. I almost bought a Tacoma myself.

    Welcome, former Tacoma owner with an '07 and an '03. Upgraded to the Tundra for the extra bed width for hauling 4ft wide pallets/sheets, as well as the towing ability.
    Definitely harder to drive in the city and gets poor mileage but the extra utility, space, and comfort makes it worth it to me.

    Welcome from someone who owns both....02 1st Gen Tundra and 15 TRD Pro Taco. The new Tundras are big and don't get great mileage which is why I bought the Taco (pretty much the size of a 1st gen Tundra). Wish it had the 4.7, but like the size. Good luck on your quest.

    Thanks everyone! I do love my Tacoma and it will be a lot of deciding, but it would have to be the right truck....would love a Rock Warrior or Pro:drool:

    I'll add a few shots of the Taco, Chphilo

    Do the Tundras have the driver side lean like 4runners and Tacomas? Vibes when lifting?

    Havent noticed mine leaning, but even with a 3"front 1.5" rear level on my 14 I picked up the takeoff shudders. Every time I start out from like 0-10mph mine shudders after the lift.
    Going to try shims on the axle side and a carrier bearing drop similar to the Tacoma and see if that fixes it.

    Just 'upgraded' from 2011 Prerunner 6.5 bed to 2011 Platinum 2 weeks ago. Very different worlds

    My Prerunner felt like driving a car, something I do miss a bit. The Tundra is truly a truck a massive beast, king of the road feeling.
    It was a necessary upgrade due to my children legs getting longer. I can see myself getting a car at some point to make quick trips.

    Good Luck.!

    Welcome. No lean. You want the bed space so look at double cabs. The crewmax bed isn't bad though because it's ~1' wider and 6" longer than your double cab tacoma
