Tundra or Tacoma for next truck?

I've finally paid off my 01 and plan on keeping it around for a while, but I'm also starting to research my next truck just in case this one grenades or something bad happens. I'm looking at either a newer Tacoma doublecab or an older Tundra (either xtra or double cab). Any of you guys know a good Tundra forum, like the equivalent of Tacomaworld? I don't want the new style Tundra, I don't like how big Toyota made them and don't like the look.

Second question, for any of you who have traded in or sold your Tacoma, how close to Kelly value do these generally seem to be? Mine is in what I would consider fair condition, definitely not perfect looking but inside looks great and it runs perfectly, plus it's got a new, year old frame.

IMO get another Taco, there's plenty of guys on here (not all) that traded their Taco's for a Tundra and regretted it.

Get the Tundra if you will use what is has to offer. If you can do everything you need/want to do with your current Taco then stick with that!

I would look at another Tacoma, but aren't the 1st get Tundras pretty close to the same size as the 2nd gen Taco? For me I don't need the v8 so I would stay with the Taco.

Why get another truck? You've got a truck. Put that payment money into a toy...2011 Mustang 5.0L sounds right on target...

I work for a dealership that deals with this all the time. Its a pretty even split but the 2 things we here most are.... Guy comes in with a taco, upgrades to a tundra for the reason of space, or towing, or cause he wants more of a big fat truck feel....

The other part is guy brings in his tundra because he wants less of a big fat truck feel, doesnt need the towing, or gas is KILLING him. Either way the people who have them love them so you cant really go wrong... just make sure you pick practically cause if you tow stuff once a year not really sure you need the hog!

Thanks for all the responses so far. Mine has 160,000 on it right now, I figure it's good for at least a couple more years and maybe more, but I'm mainly trying to get an idea which I should start looking at. I'll definitely need something bigger inside that my xtracab, I need more of a real rear seat. The wife and I don't have plans for a kid anytime soon, but my next truck needs some car seat room. Maybe I should have put this in the 2nd gen. section, but are there any years I should avoid for either Tacoma or Tundra?

I own both Taco and Tundra. Both trucks are amazing, and serve their purpose. My Tundra is a 2008, so not exactly what you are looking for.

I had both a 04 Tundra DC (the first full 4 door in a tundra) & a 06 Tundra Access Cab. Both were 4.7 V8s autos w/ TRD pkgs except the 04 had a 4 speed & the 2006 was a 5 speed w/ vvti. Toyota changed to that configuration in the 2005 models.

That generation tundra by that time is very reliable & reasonable power & got comparable mileage to my current 06 Tacoma. The engine & trans were very smooth. I liked them a lot. They were just too big for what I needed in a truck. In some ways I regretted selling the 06.

Good info I found and am still a member of is TundraSolutions. Haven't been there in a while. They do have a 1GEN section.

That sounds about right to me as well.... 5.0


Tundra.... No way for me...

If your looking to get a new truck, I would stick with a Tacoma. If you want something nicer.... Get a Ford Raptor.
