    Thanks! I'm going to start with some minor stuff: bed cover, side steps maybe dip the bumpers and grill. I am very impressed with the Tundra so far, I had a F250 with the crap 6.0 and a GMC 2500 Duramax and the 5.7 moves the TRD no problem. Down the road ill dabble with a lift since I like doing some minor off roading....I got the hardcore muddin out of my system with the GMC (Allisons aren't bulletproof) :bananadead:

    Haha. What did you think of the Duramax? You'll love the Tundra!
    Many of us came from Tacomas, or Chevys. (I've had a Silverado, Titan, and Tacoma)

    Chevy gave me a CEL in 1 day
    Titan had an exhaust leak
    I loved the Tacoma...modded it out, wheeled it, snow bashed, etc...but I wanted more power and needed more cabin room.

    The Duramax was great I unlocked it with a programmer and it was a rocketship....however, it did not agree with water up to the windshield, and the torque converter split and pushed all the metal into the trans...diesels are too costly to repair and now waaay too many emissions restrictions. So time to change it up, and the cabin is massive!

    I have heard the same thing from a friend of mine... torque converter took a crap and took out the transmission (your the second one now)and some how these are heavy duty trucks? I think not...
