    New to the forum and have a 2015 limited CM. When I was shopping, I looked and test drove many trucks before deciding the Tundra. I drove a 2011 Duramax and I didn't like the feel of the steering or the outdated interior. The 2013 Powerstroke I really liked, the power and interior layout was top notch and I think the inside is a lot more comfortable and spacious than the Tundra, but I couldn't get a good deal on it so I skipped that one. I drove the Ford Raptor but the only thing I liked about that truck were the seats, very soft and comfortable but the interior felt cheap and cramped, plus the turn signal indicator was strait annoying. I'm not a fan of Dodge and will never buy another Infiniti/Nissan (so I say). The Tundra has a great reputation and has been great so far.

    Welcome from eastern CO!

    Looks like you spent a lot of time test driving. The Duramax is one hell of a motor, but I agree with ya on the interiors being subpar. I'd love to own a Powerstroke down the road (in addition to my Tundra of course).

    Thanks, I actually have it posted for sale on CL. I do like it, a lot and I know that it will be sad to see it go but I need to clear wrap it to be able to treat it how I'd like to; the 4wd system isn't the greatest and the diff lock button is pretty much useless. I think i would be better off with a 6-10k vehicle that I can drive through brush and take off-road along with with a car that puts out a high amount HP and TQ.

    I'm thinking more of a square body Powerstroke, Jeep Wrangler, or I'd might consider an older tacoma with an extended cab.
