    New guy here...

    I traded my 2018 Tacoma DCSB for a 2006 Tundra DoubleCab Limited just last week. It only has 102k miles! Timing belt was changed.
    Has a nice tonneau cover, a strong market sound system, and trailer brake controller.
    It has a few dings that comes with being 14 years old but it's really sharp!

    I had bought the 18 Tacoma new and while there are some features I liked, I really missed the extra room of the Tundra and that V8 engine.
    Gas mileage is roughly the same.

    I had previously owned a 2003 Tundra access cab, step side 4.7 and drove it for 14 years, 250k miles. Was driving strong when I traded it to get my daughter a car.

    It's good to be back!

    Very similar boat for me. Went from an ‘03 Access Cab to various other Toyota’s/Lexus’ and then landed in a new Tundra. Loved it, but got sick of payments and it was too big for what I needed at the moment.

    Found my ‘06 DC from the original owner with 140K miles and haven’t looked back, perfect for my needs. Spent the last 4 months, with help from this forum, doing all the little preventative maintenance items and some upgrades - finally have it dialed in and it’s like new.

    welcome back!

    Welcome from NC. Nice looking truck! What rims and tires are you using? I like how they look and have been looking to swap out my 20" BBS on my first gen.

    Looks great! I hope I get many, many miles out of this 06 Tundra. I just love the way they drive and feel.
