    WV boy here...Long story short, my first 3 trucks were all Tacomas. When I bought a camper I went to a full size truck but switched to a Silverado. After 3 years of dealing with the petty GM issues I finally came back to my senses and sat myself in a 2019 Tundra Crew Max TRD Off-Road Silver Sky Metallic. Has the large fuel tank already. Only plans are to add:

    1) spray in bedliner
    2) tonneau cover
    3) TUNDRA tailgate inserts

    I am not new to forums, so I won't be asking newb questions, but I'll be lurking around and asking when needed. I thank you all in advance for any help you'll be giving me. And I look forward to providing my input when I can!

    Let's Go Mountaineers!

    Just the typical issues everyone has with the 5.3L AFM motor and the 6 speed transmission. Transmission always hunting for gears when swapping between 4 cylinder mode and v8 mode. Hard shifts as well. No "on the spot" acceleration because of that. I even had mine custom tuned by Black Bear. They did awesome at disabling the AFM and making it more drivable, but it still shifted unacceptable to me.

    In comparison, when I test drove the Tundra the acceleration was there all throughout the RPMs and the shifts were flawlessly smooth. You really don't appreciate a smooth shifting and accelerating engine+transmission combo until it's gone.

    I can't talk smack about that, WVU-VT in the old Big East with the black diamond trophy sure gave us some great games. Early 2000s especially!
