    After years of being a GM owner, finally made the switch. Happy to get out from under the POS foreign made 2014 Sierra.

    Been wanting a black Toyota 4WD since Back to the Future Part 1. Finally got her.

    2021 Toyota SR5 TRD Sport Edition

    Mods so far:
    3/1 Rough Country Leveling Kit
    20x10 Fuel Contra Wheels- -18 Offset
    33x12.5 R20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers
    Katskin Heated Leather Seats
    Husky XACT contour floor liners

    Up Next:
    Diode Dynamics Stealth Bumper 42" light bar
    Amp Power Steps

    Eventually would like:
    Upgraded speakers (without changing head unit) Any suggestions?
    Xpel PPF and Ceramic (nearest installer is 75 miles from me)
    NSV Hood Bulge Light Bar (not completely sold due to price)

    Are you near this storm? We are on the east side, hopefully it leaves our new trucks alone.

    I came out of a Sierra too, so I know exactly how you feel right now. What was the main thing you noticed? I can't pick just one, everything is so much better, but if I had to, I'd say the transmission and engine.

    Yea, we lost our roof in Zeta when it was only supposed to be a tropical storm, so I know exactly how you feel.

    I felt like I was going to encounter the same BS with my GMC, so I'm glad I'm out. I bet you are in hog heaven.

    Yes, the Tundra definitely lacks in the MPG department, but I can buy a whole lot of gas for what a new transmission cost.

    Saw a gator in the Gulf trying to eat a dead hog today, so you know how bad the storm was. I hope all you folks made out okay.
