    The Taco won't have adequate passenger room IMO. It's pretty small.

    As for towing the RZR, I have a small two seater, not a huge 4 door race machine, so it's pretty light. Also, I don't try to tow at 80 MPH like the guys pulled over with blown trailer tires. I am perfectly happy to cruise along at 65 for MPGs and to keep from overheating the trailer tires.

    It sounds to me like you just want a new truck. IMO the tundra is better than the taco in every category....hands down better. The mileage difference is minimal in the real world. You already know my opinion about the taco. Hopefully the next gen improves it cuz it seriously needs it. Good luck with your new taco and I hope it serves you well....please stay around here, we like you! Or at least I do. :thumbsup:

    NGL, I definitely have the itch for something new. Have had for a year, but it wasn't until riding in the Taco that I felt there was a valid option.

    As for the forum, I'm not going anywhere. Just like herpes. :p

    This pretty well solidifies the Taco as the right choice for me. I briefly had a temptation for the power and 9 speed in the Nissan. Not to knock the Nissan. It's a badass truck, but the places I've been in my Tundra and where I'll continue to go.... The Taco will handle it so much better. Frontier is a little cheaper MSRP, but I also haven't seen it anywhere for anything less that a $3K-$5K mark up. That puts it so close that the Taco's added off road chops are worth it.

    To each their own! The Nissan is a solid truck and I'm sure I'd like it. I'm just gonna spoil myself and get exactly what I want. :p

    So, I've been going through the pricing on used Tundras, and there's not a feasible way to get a Taco in a completely lateral move on debt. The numbers just aren't there. I've also been researching the TRD Pro Tacoma, and I have come to the realization that I don't care. Life's short, and I'm willing to take on a little more to pull it off. I have to if I want the Pro, and I do. I'll be cutting my payment by a significant amount, but I'll keep paying what I am now to minimize the increasing interest rates.

    Now it'll come down to getting a number the dealer is happy with and I'm happy with. The one I've had the best feeling about is a long ways away (over 1000 miles), so I need to account for the cost of fuel and a night or two in a hotel, plus personal time lost to travel in whatever price they come up with. If it's only a hundred less than a local dealership, it just won't be worth the travel expenses and lost time. However, if it's a solid discount over what I can find closer, I'm not opposed to one final road trip in the Tundra.

    I hate to say it but the art of the deal is one of the chases i love most.

    Really? I hate it. It takes too long and creates an adversarial relationship with a business that should be cultivating repeat customers. Just my opinion, but I understand people enjoying the fight. Just not for me.

    less the fight, more looking for the right fit and constructing what i am willing to do. As far as back and forth with dealer, thats a negative ghost rider. I will typically go in and state what i am willing to do and allow them the time to do their process and eventually either accept or refuse.

    Ah, that's more my type of thing as well. No games, just an offer and acceptance or refusal.
