    Hello Tundras.com

    Just got my new 2016 Tundra Crew Max last month, this is my second Tundra, traded in my 2010 Reg Cab Long Bed 4.0L W/T. I had been hanging around TW forums for awhile, at first because it was a better resource for info on the 4.0 and then because I was seriously considering a 2016 Tacoma OR with a M/T. It ended up being an act of God to get a M/T OR in white, also the head room in the Tacoma, with the fixed seat height, was a concern for me.

    It is definitely an upgrade for me, getting the 5.7L and the giant back seat. Although it wasn't a deal breaker, I will say I am disappointed with the lack of storage and various compartments compared to the second generation. I lost the double glove box, the ash tray(which was storage), no access behind the back seat and the fact that the center console is shaped like a 10 gallon cooler.

    Look forward to contributing.

    Thanks.

    Welcome from NW Arkansas! You need to get a Salex organizer for your console. It makes life with that huge compartment so much easier.

    I like those, but I wish they were kinda like stepped. That way some of the compartments would be higher up near the top.
