    Hello everyone. Long time Tacoma owner and TW member here.
    In process of getting Wife to be happy changing our '13 DCLB Sport, with a new Tundra.
    Hopefully I can get her on board shortly. I'm looking forward to the 5.7V8. :burnrubber:
    Looking forward chatting with you all.
    Thanks, DanD

    Welcome to the forum from Western PA. 5.7 is definitely the way to go. I recently changed my tires (each tire is 40 lbs heavier than the stock) and the truck hardly notices any difference.

    I agree on the 5.7. Tell her bigger is safer.
    Good luck! I also came from a taco (and TW) and I love the tundra so far.

    Do it right and the 5.7. You won't regret it.

    For me the deciding factor was the killer trade in that Toyota gave me for my 2012 Tacoma and the 1.9% financing.

    I love my new Tundra.

    Actually no, not yet. The wife doesn't think I should buy another new truck so soon. We'll see if I can swing her.

    Convincing the wife might be a tough one. Better beg for forgiveness then ask for permission. Just go for it big man!!

    Well not sure if it counts ,but already pulled the long antenna and replaced with a 8" stubby.
    Coming will be some type of Nerf steps or sliders. Will get 30%tint in front windows this week.
    So much to spend dollars on...
    This the first 4x4 I've owned so will need to get to know that system better.
    Maybe put a tundras.com sticker on it?
