    Was gonna buy a new 2016 Tacoma but the reviews were not that great for a new model ( 1st year issues) and the interior was a bit too small for my 3 kids.
    Decided to pick up a used Tundra instead.

    2012 CM TRD 4x4

    KINGS 2.5 front and rear
    Total Chaos UCAs
    Method standard 18"
    Toyo Open Country R/T 33x12.5x18.
    tint
    TRD shifter
    Morimotos Fog lights
    Rock warrior front grille
    Antenna-X 13" O/R antenna
    Line X premium: bed, front and rear bumper.
    grille emblem Line x as well.
    tailgate de-badged
    toyota tundra SB bed mat.
    VLEDs 5K cabin interior + LED strip footwell. both sides.
    LED rear backup lights JDM/amazon
    HID low beams w/ canbus. H11 5K white
    plastidipped emblems.

    KO2 make that "slushy" sound when driving at low speed. They also pick up all those little rocks. The R/T don't.

    Looking good.
    I am happy with my TRD shifter, its has a good feel. No need for aftermarket if you have the TRD shifter.

    Nice looking' truck, sir. Did you say you removed your antenna? Might want to consider a stubby. Leaving that socket empty will likely lead to rust.

    I still need to try out reception on mine, put on the 13" AntennaX. Was it just bad reception that made you take yours off?

    reception was ok in the city but the product execution was so so. First it left visible threads once I put it one and needed to add a spacer. Second, having multiple adapters for different cars made it easier to have the adapter stuck in the socket and the left over antenna in your hand.

    was averaging 14.5 to 15 mpg on a 1000 + miles trip. Not bad with the 33" toyos.
    Went from sea level to 7,500 + ft then back to sea level.

    really like the alpine area around Williams, AZ and Flagstaff,AZ
