    Haha we shall see. Out of over a dozen vehicles I've only had three non-Toyotas...a 1973 VW bug, a 1996 Mitsubishi Galante, and a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country. Only the Chrysler was a piece of crap. So this is a large leap of faith. Time will tell. I have heard good things about the Coyote engine.

    You can do online appraisals. Basically you take pictures of each side, front, rear, under hood, in trunk, tires, dash showing odometer, then a pic from between the front seats showing the full dash. Maybe a couple other things. Then you do a brief questionnaire about CELs, strange noises, etc. You also submit your plate # and they run it for accidents/damage/etc. It took me about 10-15minutes to do the entire process.

    I went the reverse.
    I had traded a mini for my 2020.
    It was a 4 door S, manual with a DINAN chip installed.

    Apparently they dont know their stuff well enough to notice the bolt in the throttle body where aux fueling was sprayed! . In their defense...it was covered by the engine cover but still.

    Nice color and engine choice. That would be the configuration I would get if I bought an F150... im just not sold on the aluminum body.

    ... i wouldn't do that you'll miss the truck. Those Minis are unreliable. Fun to drive for sure, but unreliable. If it is short term ownership then that would be ok.

    Not yet. I am really enjoying the room and power. I'm already painting some 3d chrome flags to place on the truck. On the F150 I will likely only accessorize it so I will definitely miss the actual modding.

    They’ve been 1 selling full-size for awhile. A guy I work with just got one with the eco boost. Sounds pretty neat with the turbo.

    I like them but have heard people have problems with fords compared to Toyota’s but I’ve heard ford owners argue the opposite as well I guess it comes down to personal preference and how well you take care of your vehicle

    Both are Stock - built correct from the start.
    I worked sales at Carmax for a bit years ago. Our buyers who appraise the vehicle very well trained and experienced. They’re also up on the automotive trends. They work all the auction plus their onsite appraisals. They’ve seen it all. I’d be very surprised if something as trendy as a fmc passed them unnoticed.

    The carmax buyer seemed legit. He understood the CMC was not really frame damage but he said technically he had to write it up as such. He seemed legit

    I just did a very similar thing, but traded my 2017 taco for a Tundra. My kids too, like the added space.

    Congrats. I wanted a Tundra but could not find a TRD Off Road Trim. Inventory is abysmal. So my second choice was an F150. Maybe one day if they redesign the Tundra I'll get it. For now I'm content with the F150, our Sienna and my oldie 2007 camry.

    I agree like the trim and over all look way better on the taco I haven’t liked the tundra look as much the last few years still a great truck though but it’s just a preference like the Tacoma way better
