    Well, I just traded in my Taco for the TRD PRO Tundra. I'm still in the mourning phase, but this thing is pretty sweet. I'm really happy to see there is a Tundra version to TW to call home. I've already been looking around and I'm glad to see there are MODs I can do to this thing as well as builds I can live vicariously through on this site.


    I'll be seeing you all around the site.Toyotas.jpg

    Welcome! Lots of us transitioned from the Tacoma and Tacomaworld.com. When i see a lifted black Tacoma i get a little sad that i sold it but then i hit the accelerator and smile.

    completely agree!
    not to mention somehow my 5.7L V8 gets better mileage than my 4.0 6 speed manual taco ever did.
    welcome to the site and congrats on the new ride!

    Welcome and congrats on your Pro. Your truck is already modded to its sweetness from the factory.

    I also came to a Tundra from a taco/TW, but I don't have a TRD Pro! What an awesome truck right outta the box. Enjoy!

    Welcome from CO. Very nice Pro. I don't don't miss my Tacoma. I did at first. It was a great truck and took me a lot of places. My Tundra has changed all that.

    Ya, I've been very happy with the V8. Now for the important things, like fill up these giant wheel wells and organize this abyss they call a center console!

    That's no joke. I could probably live a week or two out of my center console alone. Its massive.

    The same guy that made a center console organizer for the Tacoma, makes one for the Tundra. I just ordered mine today.
    $22 shipped from Amazon (with a minimum $35 order of stuff)

    I'm also one of the many that recently transitioned here from TW and out of a Tacoma Sport to a Tundra.
    These are big boy trucks!

    Do you have a link for the organizer? I never bought one for the Tacoma. I installed an led light and switch, hiding the battery pack in the rear panel of the console. Turned out pretty cool, but I never used it or the console. I used the pockets behind the seats more than I used the console lol.
