    Hey Folks. Picked up my 2015 5.7 DC white Tundra with 84k miles back in February after selling our 2010 Taco with 170k miles. We bought it mostly towing our 5k# TT but have enjoyed it so much its turned into our family car. My daily is a MINI and the wife drives a Tesla Model 3 so theres a huge difference between our cars.
    Loved the Taco but no way am I going back from this and the MINI has hardly moved during our work from home Covid schedule. No major mod plans yet other than for towing purposes. Maybe a small lift or leveling kit in the future. We will see

    Welcome from Deep South Texas, formerly Dallas/Ft Worth, formerly Norwich CT, formerly Dallas/Ft Worth.

    My personal opinion but the first two 'mods' should be a console organizer (tic-tac-tow board) and a console tray. You can get a full size console tray or half size one. No matter which one that you get, if you have a 12v socket inside the console, get a tray that has a hole in it so that you can route charge cables through it.

    Parking lot at the top of Mt Washington. Took the truck and camper up there last week. Drive it over 1000 miles in 5 days enjoying everything around the White Mountains.

    Thanks - the large tray was one of the first things I did. Couldn't understand how a space that large had nothing on top. got the exact one you shared. I didn't realize there was a 12v port in there. was noticing the USB port doesn't charge so that may be the next spot.

    That is AWESOME - undercast and everything. Mt Wash is one of my favorite places in the world. We go every year with a group of Minis and decided to take the Tundra up this year since our event was postponed.
