    Always wanted the Tundra but could never justify the price in my mind. Since Toyota's basically last forever, this will be my last truck for a good long while. Just got everything i wanted in a truck and said screw it. Plus the price wasn't too bad either.

    Good reasons in my book! I got mine with 67k miles on it and plan on running it till it dies, which'll be a long while since it only gets driven on the weekends.

    So you're not planning on doing anything to er?

    welcome from CA ! I skipped the Tacoma after seeing the not so good reviews on the 2016 and went straight to the Tundra :) good choice. So much space compare to Tacoma.

    Welcome from FL! I bought a Tundra because they're basically in the same price range as the Tacoma. And twice as much truck IMHO....

    I agree, the only thing I miss about the tacoma is the storage space. Had space behind the seat, under, and in the bed. Lost all of it..lol. oh well. Even kinda miss the outlet in the truck bed

    I was surprised when I tried to tilt the back seats forward thinking it would be like my 08 Tacoma but I was wrong no extra storage there or under the seats :hattip: now I need to figure out how to move the back seats so I can install a sub and amp
