    Cool article. Sleepy is an appropriate term.

    Yes they did, I was wondering if anyone would notice. The HP quoted was for the V6

    4x4 V8 powered 4runner is starting to see an increase in value and the 4x4 4.7 tundra will catch on soon.

    Even though i moved up to a 2019 CM, I miss my 2001 for a few reasons. It was the perfect size truck.

    I sold it a few months ago for just under $8,000.

    I actually met the owner of that tundra about a year and a half ago. I had a Titan at the time, but had always liked the first gen tundras. He didn't make me want a first gen any less that's for sure. His company sells some pretty cool stuff too. We were talking with him about getting a demo rooftop tent for one of our teardrop trailers for a show or something. He seemed like a pretty cool guy that genuinely liked Toyotas. If I recall he had a pretty cool land cruiser too.

    This was also the same day I rode in the back seat of my boss's Tacoma crew cab and decided I needed more room. The cab looks similar in size to a first gen tundra but it's smaller in pretty much every way if I recall.

    Having owned both, I can confirm, significantly smaller in all areas...

    The lack of space in the backseat is the only reason i had to sell my 2001. One word: kids. Love 'em but they come with a LOT of gear..

    The last double cab Tacoma I rode in was a 2017 or maybe 18 and it's a nice truck, beautiful even. They have good power and all the fun stuff, but somehow a first gen tundra still has more space inside. From the outside they look like about the same size cab to me. Somewhere those inches are getting lost haha

    I concur. It's the same with 4runners too, they look big outside but inside isn't as spacious as youd expect. I've been perplexed by that in both Tacomas and 4runners. Both excellent platforms, I wouldn't knock them, but it's as if they have doors a foot thick and lots of center console. The dark interior colors didn't help either.

    I used to drive an double cab Taco almost daily, when I got my access cab Tundra it felt way bigger inside. Bed seemed bigger inside and cab seemed taller too, more headroom.

    I like that they didn't go all out with the lift and tires, and this gives me some ideas for if/when I retire my 2002 from work truck duties.
