    Hey guys!

    Just recently switched from my 2014 EcoDiesel to a Tundra. I sold my Jetta back just a few months ago and with the emissions stuff going on with Fiat, I decided that I'm switching back to gas!

    I'm loving the 5.7L and the deep sound of displacement!

    Welcome! Yeah, I heard somewhere that those eco diesels are putting out 20 times the legal limit of pollutants.

    Only had her for a little over 24 hours and it is a much nicer ride (the RAM had the air suspension on 20" so it rode pretty rough and tons of body roll)
