    Hey guys,
    Joining from Colorado Springs, CO. I traded my 2016 Tacoma a week ago for a 2017 Tundra Limited and couldn't be happier so far. Truck drives awesome and a ton more power than the Tacoma. I've been on the forum since the day after I bought it and cant wait to start with some mods, seems to be some great info on this forum.

    Thanks!

    Welcome. I just can't believe so many are trading in their '16 Tacos. Any particular reason?

    Not too sure yet, probably an exhaust and then possibly a level/lift kit

    Wasn't big enough, lacked power once I lifted it and went with a bigger tire. Also, was hit in a recent hail storm and was never the same after repairs.

    I did the same thing, as have many others. I had a 2016 Tacoma TRD Sport Access Cab with the 6 speed manual. I had to special order it , so I didn't have a chance to drive the manual before I bought the truck. The manual transmission was one of the worst I've ever owned, and I've had a lot. It was stiff, notchy, clunky, and altogether unpleasant to drive. The steering was equally bad, requiring constant left/right corrections to keep it in one lane at highway speeds. I like my Tundra way more that the Taco, and only gave up 2.5 mpg average for all the extra room and power. Good decision!

    Welcome! Nice truck, and looks like you already tinted the fronts to match the rear. I'm another Taco to Tundra convert this year.
