    Hey,

    I've been looking for a good deal on a 4x4 Toyota for a while and I finally went to test drive a 2011 double cab tacoma 4x4 v6 auto and a 2008 double cab Tundra 5.7 TRD off road. I traded in my 2015 Tacoma base model 4x2 4 cyl for the Tundra. Gas mileage is worse but the towing capacity, interior space, bed space, and overall comfort and feel seems better than the Tacoma.


    On the lot the day I brought it home.

    Switching everything over to the Tundra from the Tacoma.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks! ha-ha yeah! It's my first v8! It's amazing!!:woot: I have to get used to the mileage especially in sub zero temperatures.. Besides the manual transmission and mileage I don't really miss the Tacoma. I've never owned a automatic transmission so i'll have to get used to that. This truck will suit my needs perfectly though! Needs: daily driver, tow vehicle, road trip vehicle, ADVehicle.
