    hey guys,

    I just picked up a 2016 Texas Edition Tundra with the 5.7, MGM, CM, 38 gallon tank, and a bunch more goodies. I came over from TacomaWorld (Netmonkeys build) and I am very happy that I traded the Tacoma for the Tundra. The Tundra is so much more comfortable, quiet, and refined. I absolutely love it.

    I don't plan on doing any major modifications. I got all the lifting, tires, other mods, and off roading are out of my system with the Tacoma. It is just nice to have a clean and working truck :)
    At the very least, I will get the side windows tinted. And, at most, I may add an under seat storage cubby in the back. I really like the truck just the way it is.

    I got a really fair deal at my local Toyota dealership. I was able to get 0% financing for 60 months, $1500 cash back, $19k for the trade-in, and an 8 year, zero deductible warranty for $26k out the door. I was looking at having to dump a bunch of cash into the Tacoma so this purchase made perfect sense. Hell, even my wife told me to go buy the truck.... and I couldn't possibly tell her no :)

    Beautiful truck but, there is no way you won't mod it. That mod bug is infectious!

    Wow. I filled up my first tank of gas today and I got 16.3 mpg. That's just as good as the Tacoma. Whoot :)
