    New member from El Paso, Texas. I recently traded my ‘19 black Raptor for a 2020 Tundra Trd Pro in Army Green. 5 weeks later, no regrets.

    I’m thinking in doing a few mods, but for the most part keeping it stock.

    What kind of hit did you take and why did you trade?

    I was looking at the Ford before buying my Pro but didnt need $20,000 in features so I went with a Toyota.
    I traded in my Tacoma

    Without trying to ultra-elaborate, here are just a few reasons I traded up or down or whatever you might wanna feel.
    1. Before getting into a Raptor, I have had my fair share of vehicles in the past 10 years (that’s when I started having the means to trade/buy a new vehicle every year) including: ‘14 FJ Cruiser, ‘15 Tacoma SR5, ‘16 Tundra SR5, ‘17 Tundra TRD off-road, and then that’s when I decided to get into ‘19 Raptor (not counting the sport cars I have owned)
    2. From day one, Wipers malfunctioned (got them fixed by dealer
    3. Front left caliper got loose and scratched front wheel (again dealer had to replace caliper and bolt)
    4. We got a hail storm, which we kind of get one a year and it damaged the roof and back panels (yes, yes, mere coincidence but my Tundra was in a similar storm in 2017 and not a single dent). Again, insurance covered and had the dealer repaired the damage
    5. During my first off roading ride, I noticed when shifting to 4L that the truck would shake real bad when shifting to Drive or Reverse. The whole truck would jerk. Dealer insisted that it was totally normal.
    6. Once in a while, during normal driving, when shifting to Reverse , the transmission would feel real strange and it had like a kick (seemed like a damage engine or tranny mount) Dealer claimed that it was normal.
    7. After 10,000 miles I started noticing a rattling when I had it in Drive during normal driving. Once shifted to Park, the noise would go away.

    All of these seemed more like bad luck. But never ever had such bad luck on my other Toyotas or wife’s Lexus. Maybe Toyota-Zeus was angered because of my abandonment and I was pushed back to Toyota.
    I was very fortunate to not lose any $$ on my trade. I got what I owned on my Raptor (I had only put down 2k back in May 2019). Because the raptor was a little more than the TRD pro, I also got the tax incentive and had to pay No additional taxes on new TRD.
