    I had a DC 2004 four full doors. It was an awesome truck. I sold it with around 30k to get my tacoma but really liked it though it was much bigger than my needs. The taco fits me better.
    In 2005 the tundra went to the vvti and the auto changed from a 4 to a 5 spd. There were some other subtle differences in like tail lights.
    That mileage is pretty low for the model year.
    Very smooth trans & rode awesome.
    Big deep bed with 4 metal tie down points. Metal bed.
    Power Full Rear Slider & super comfortable for 5 full adults to ride. The cabin was real roomy.
    Parking was a pita and it did not fit in my garage at the time.
    Also the small v8 4.7 did ok mpg wise even compared to my V6 4.0.
    That is all I remember. Would buy another if it wasn't so big or if I had a growing family.

    Congrats on the new tundra!
    So you have the tacoma and your wife has the tundra?
    Definitely more room than the 4runner & will ride very, very nice.
    The two boys & 4 doxies will be riding in style. Oh you & your wife too! :D
