    All,
    I am looking to purchase a newer tundra 2015+ to replace the Tacoma I have had for the past 4 years. I wanted to get some of your opinions on what to look for what not to look for in the Tundra packages. So far I know that I want the Crewmax however trying to decide to wait on finding a good deal on a TRD Pro or get the offroad version. I like the idea of the Pro and the trim is awesome however it comes at a pretty penny and hard to find one thats the metallic grey. The other option is the TRD Offroad and I wanted to some opinions on the stock suspension, likes/dislikes problems any other reccomendations with this trim level. I have heard bad things about the flex fuel just havent done enough research on it yet to say if its that big of a deal to me.......I wont be supercharging the truck in the future. I dont think they even make the TRD supercharger anymore for these trucks.

    Try to get a ‘16+ with a 38 gallon fuel tank.

    1. you won't find a "good deal" on a used pro - factor in ~$2400 to add the pro suspension, or ~$1000 for Bilstein 6112/5160 which is the next step down
    2. some dislike the stock shocks on the regular TRD - personally I think it's fine, rides better than my friend's '16 F150 on KO2's
    3. flex fuel is fine if you don't run e85, the current magnuson supercharged tune from bully dog I heard was garbage
