    2017 CM Tundra TRD
    Picked up a 2017 CM last week. It came with some pain as I traded in my Tacoma that was only 10 months old. I guess the arrival of twins in three months changes things :eek:. Got the truck last Wednesday and went on a 750 mile weekend road trip and instantly fell in love with the new ride. Got to love the 5.7L in the mountains...not to mention the room the truck offers is amazing. Averaged 18.5 mpg on the trip which was much better than expected. Looking forward to the next 10 years, and the truck should certainly be big enough for all of the family excursions. Here are some pics I've snagged over the last week...and one last pic of my old Taco.

    Welcome and great choice! Nothing better than the room in a Crewmax with the kiddo(s) and car seat(s). Congrats on the twins!

    I couldn't trade my family in, so I had to go from a Tacoma to a Tundra as well :wink:

    I will say I love the Tundra and as much as I loved my Tacoma, I plan to stay with Tundra's.

    Congrats and welcome! You are going to love the CM for the room once you get the car seats in. My 2 little girls (3 and 1 1/2) love my Tundra, and they can't kick the seat in front of them either, and they are both tall too (helps I'm 6'5").

    Great looking truck. Your town looks like the movie set for wayward pines. Beautiful but a little too perfect.

    As I am sure you measured and researched, it is all but impossible to have two car seats in the back of a Taco. I just got my CM last week and the car the room is insane. You had to do it!

    Welcome. A lot of us are former Tacoma owners. There seems to be a lot of disenfranchised 3rd gen Taco owners that are making the switch lately.
