    Hi All,

    Had a great Tacoma and had lots of fun with it. Tundra TRD Pro is just more fun :) Here are some pix...

    Welcome! What all have you done to the PRO? Looks like you already lifted it a bit.

    In Northern VA, I had the guys at High Tech Auto and Truck set this up with a 3" lift and SCS wheels. They also did my Tacoma. Here is a snapshot from their Facebook page.

    Love your truck.
    I also too came from owning a Tacoma for the past 8 years.
    What you think of the 2? Do you miss anything from the Tacoma?

    Hey Thx. I miss being able to drive into the parking garage at work with my Taco - lol. The Tundra is much quieter and a smoother ride. Not sure if its smoother cuz of the fox suspension in combo with 20" wheels vs Toytec 5100s suspension with 18" wheels on the Taco. I will not miss the driver side manual adjusting seat - love the power seat and leather. I also just couldn't haul anything I needed to in a pinch with a 5' bed (no fault of the Taco...just a poor choice of the 5' bed on my part...but it also let me justify a new Tundra just a tad).

    It's a much smoother ride for sure. I have the SR5 model bilstien shocks.
    I'm sure your ride is much smoother with those bad boys Fox shocks.

    Power is amazing, the adjustable seating seats, are nice to have.
    I still can understand why the new Tacomas don't have the adjustable seating.
    What kind are your nerf bars? They look sweet.
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum and congrats. Why did you get a Pro if you were going to switch out the suspension (the most expensive part of the Pro package)? Just curious?

    Excellent question. My friend called me crazy. I honestly had no intention of replacing the suspension and was only going to level it. But bad habits kick in and a little voice inside my head said, "Modify it, lift it...get the Fox suspension." I don't really have any better explanation than that :)

    That's just about the best explanation I've read on our addiction, haha.

    Welcome from CO. Nice MGM Pro. No way I'd buy a Pro and totally redo suspension. Defeats the purpose. To each his own. IMHO. Why not leave Pro suspension as is and add an ARB air locker to really make your Pro a much better 4X4?? Unless you don't plan on any serious 4 wheeling??

    ARB Locker...that will be next. Rausch Creek Park in PA for 4 wheeling. First picture is from there.
