    Thank you all for being so welcoming.
    I did change my mind though. I went and ordered the TRD PRO Tundra in black. Just too much chrome on the Platinum, even inside. Plus, every time I see a Pro Tundra I'm jealous....not anymore :bananadance:. I could care less for heated and cooled seats and blind spot BS, I know how to use my mirrors. Comes standard with the moonroof and dual exhaust anyway. I'll just add some SDHQ (even if they are said to be a PITA to put on) or White Knuckle Offroad sliders and some 295/70/18 STT Pro's and be done with it.

    I keep telling people, I don't miss my Tacoma much at all.

    I miss it for ease of parking in tighter areas and I also prefer to turn around and look out the back when I'm backing up. I find I can't do that so well in the Tundra, gotta rely more on the camera.

    But I really like my Tundra a lot, and my mileage isn't that much worse than the Tacoma.

    06' taco 4x4 sr5 offroad double cab died at 200,000 hard miles, scored a bigger brother in 2017. Taco hated my boat behind it, now my new Tundra cant wait to hook up to it. Major towing upgrade, going uphill twice as fast now!

    Beauty! I’m trading in my 09 Taco sport in the morning for a 18 tundra off road. Should haul my sled trailer better as well as more space for the family. Taco has definitely treated me well!

    Looks good. I went from 06 Taco to 15 Tundra. Only thing I miss are the storage compartments in the Taco. The inside was well thought out.

    Good move! I traded my 2005 Tacoma for a new Platinum in November and love it. I special orderd my Taco with all options except 4X4 and it was a good truck but it's not a Tundra. They are expensive but worth it!

    Welcome from Texas!!!

    BTW, I do like all the Platinum features but do have some upgrades in mind soon.
