    I just sold my Tacoma and purchased an 07 Tundra.

    So I moved from Tacoma World over to here.

    I purchased this truck for the bigger motor so I could pull a larger boat.
    So far I'm very impressed and it's made losing my Taco much easier.



    Things I'm looking to sell.
    Current rims, steps

    Things I'm looking to purchase...
    Weather tech floor mats
    Black running boards
    22" rims - most likely black

    Here's the Tundra

    Thanks guys.
    I'll check that thread out.

    I haven't purchased the boat yet, but looking for a 20-24' Center console that I can take off shore.

    Go Gamecocks!

    Welcome from South La buddy!! Nice looking truck, I personally wouldn't change a thing!
    On the weathertech mats, I've heard they move around a lot. I've made the suggestion for Kagu 3D MAXpider mats. I have some in my tundy, and LOVE them. Never got into weathertech.

    I too have made the switch, Taco2Tundra! I love the power, the comfortable ride and quality of truck.
    Your truck looks great! What did you use to take that picture, it looks professional?

    Very true. My weathertechs are durable as hell but I can't get them to stay in place without nailing them to the floor and I'm not doing that.

    Also, welcome from NM good buddy. I made the transition from a small sedan with a 1.2L engine. Great looking truck

    Yeah I hear you on the weathertech!! Can't poke holes in your tundy! (I made an exception with my bed mount bottle opener!! ) the ones I have have this Velcro stuff at the bottom and been through hell these past couple years (I'm a country boy who likes to work hard and play hard) they're digitally moulded like the weathertech's are and looks better IMO

    Nice!! I made the jump from a 98 s10. Took me a while to get used to the size! LOL
    Thanks brother! Still not done with the mods yet! Hopefully I'll get some BOSS suspensions and wheels within the next year!!

    Husky liners for the win. No issues like that.

    I actually have a mix due to buying it that way. Got a weathertech on passenger side and husky liner in the rear and driver side. I did notice this morning "like why the hell is my gas pedal hitting something" then realized that husky I have gets all over the place. It was old though when they threw it in there so idk which brand to buy but want to get a new matching set of some kind all around.

    Welcome to the family. Great looking trucks. It's sad to see the Tacoma go but a welcome sight with the tundra.

    Thanks for all the warm welcomes and advice. I'm glad you told me about the weather techs. I wanted them because I didn't think that they would move around.

    I took the photo of my tundra with my cell phone. Then uploaded it to instagram.
    You can change the filters and what not.
    I believe it was the structure that I changed to make it look like that.

    Anyone have any suggestions on how I can increase the gas mileage? Is there a chip or something?

    Welcome from Japan! Your Tundra literally looks like your Taco took a bunch of steroids and caught swolentitis.
