    Hi guys I'm making the move from TW (TforceG) to tundras. Name is Gilbert and I'm from south Tx. Well I ended up trading in my Tacoma and now I have a 2016 SR5 Crewmax.
    It's only been a few days and already love this thing. I don't regret it all.

    Welcome from northern ny. I did the same thing a few weeks ago traded in my 15 tacoma for a 16 tundra double cab sr5. Needed more tow capacity. Love the truck.

    It came with a lift, wheels and tires from the dealer. To be honest I didn't even bother finding out details, the thing rides like a charm and sits nicely plus the most offroad it will see is beach and maybe dirt, mud, gravel roads. I did get under the truck and looks like procomp 3+1 but I could be wrong.

    Traded my 2015 Tacoma DCSB for a Crew max sr5 4x4 and love it. I traded because I needed more room for our 3 child and the taco didn't like the lift and big wheels and tires I put on it anyway. I love the room and the 5.7. No regrets. The Tundra and the FJ have to be my all time favorite yotas.

    I know it’s a revived old thread but I’m just chiming in as a guy who went from a Tacoma to a Tundra then back to a Tacoma and as of three days ago, back to a Tundra. Cheers to all of the other Taco-traders out there.
